Keeping it pithy food was oily and overcooked, aka not fresh, food was served without a plate for each person, overpriced. Service was irrelevant and robotic. Drive a little and get better elsewhere.

Average food, nothing special. Will not return here to eat. Place looked in shambles, holes in ceiling where cables were coming out. Flies and I just hoped we could get out of there without getting sick.

Went there for lunch and wasn't impressed we got the coconut shrimp and the seafood po boy. Nothing stood out I would have rather gotten a burger somewhere else. Beer was not very cold. Needs lots of repairs inside and you can tell it's an old Chinese restaurant.

Just because it's close to the water doesn't mean they have fresh seafood. It's frozen and just bland. The coleslaw is nasty and so is the tea.

Very enjoyable management team. We actually loved being there. These people know how to make you feel at home. Those scrimp made a believer out of me. I use to not like seafood up until I ate at this place. Very good service also. Get out the tip money they deserve all you can give. Very nice people.

The fresh oysters were really good. We enjoyed them the most out of everything we ordered. We both ordered the grilled shrimp hoping it was fresh caught locally. The shrimp was okay. The dish came with hush puppies. we took one bite of and left the rest behind. Coleslaw was good. We were really hoping for a bucket of fresh... More

Sorta reminds us of a Chinese food restaurant. But good would recommend to anyone. Had the red snapper and the jumbo shrimp.
