We love to sit on the enclosed deck overlooking the river which perfectly compliments the reliably excellent food and friendly, attentive service. It is our pick for good food and good conversation.

Good atmosphere, located on the Holston river and very family oriented. The seafood platter is great, all you can eat. Not to mention the oysters if you like them. The clams are good as well. I have ate here several times.

I absolutely love this place! Mainly because they serve hushpuppies with your fish entrée. You never see that anywhere else. My mother always orders the White Fish, but I always order the Tilapia, which is grilled and nicely seasoned. After seeing all these reviews on...More

Best seafood in Kingsport, period. Ambiance is great as the restaurant sits off the Holston River with outdoor dining should you choose. Some area residents refer to the owner as "the fish nazi". I can't understand why. I guess it's a reference to Seinfeld. It...More
