Ate here twice during my travels. Fried flounder was fresh. Say that 3 times real fast. Cole slaw was awesome. Service was very good. Nothing fancy just a basic Southern seafood restaurant. Was told by fellow patrons the shrimp, scallops, and catfish were very good. Place is clean, prices right, portions good size. Go, you won't regret it.

I moved to Elizabeth City 8 months ago and have made this my place to go for fresh seafood. Not a fancy restaurant but very clean and updated. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly and fast.

The best southern fried seafood you'll ever taste. The crowd is just visual evidence that the food is superb. The name truly defines your satisfaction after you are done.

A friend recommend we have lunch there following a round of golf in Elizabeth City. The restaurant is a no-frills, place your order at the counter and wait kind of place, but was it ever worth the (relatively short) wait! My seafood sampler was a piping hot, made to order feast of delicious deep-fried fresh fish fillets, shrimp, scallops, and... More

I've eaten here four or five times and I'm never disappointed. The food is always hot and fresh. If you're looking for fried fish, shrimp, and hush puppies you will love this restaurant. The service is fast and friendly and it will become a fast favorite!

What a great find! Nothing fancy but a busy eat in and take out restaurant. You can also buy fresh fish in the next room to cook at home. Sometimes a short wait but the food is made fresh when you order it. We had dinner twice during a 3 night stay. The dinners are served with French fries, Cole... More

Restaurant was busy and we really wanted some seafood especially being so close to the beach but we should have kept going. We ordered the sampler platter with trout, shrimp, scallops and oysters and it comes with fries, cole slaw and hush puppies. A crab cake sandwich, fried okra, and extra hush puppies. We got it to go, got to... More
