Appearance just an average seafood place. Felt expensive for the food. Seemed to be trying to appear like a more expensive restaurant by their menus choices. Serving size very small for the price charged. Average service.

Dark and dingy, more of a locals bar and hangout than a place to go for a good meal. Food is overpriced and staff would rather talk to their friends at the bar than take care of other customers.

The food was really good, the service was excellent and the atmosphere is low country at its best. I passed up the fresh clams and hope they are available on our next visit.

Delicious seafood! Best waitress ever! Ordered grilled scallops, shrimp, and grouper. Best ever. Also reasonable prices. Don't miss this place! Food as good as Boondocks, but way better service.

Awesome!!! I'm on vacation and we have eaten here twice. We will probably come again before we go home. Very good food and excellent service! Fried grouper sandwich, the delicious hush puppies, & the seafood florentine were amazing and my favorites so far.

Absolutely good for conversations. The tables are nicely spaced and while there is music, and maybe even some television playing in one area, my friend and I had no issues with noise levels or being able to hear one another.
