This is a little seafood restaurant with takeout meals. The crab cakes are delicious, as are the side dishes. We stayed at the cottages at PineGrove campground for a week and ordered from here three times. Easy and convenient to our lodging. Reasonable prices.

We wanted take-out on our last night. Ordered steamed shrimp dinners. Dinners came with slaw, shrimp sauce and hush puppies all of which were very good. The hush-puppies were the best I have ever had. A really good choice for dinner.

Recommended by a local. Great selection and most comes in daily. Beside seafood they offer takeouts. Tried the crab cakes and they were great. We will keep going back for more. Today its more fresh claims and grouper.

We love Gary Howard! Every time we visit the island we had to get take-out from here. Friendly staff, quick service and excellent seafood lunch or dinner platters for the price you pay. It's a seafood market with a small parking area out front next to a campground off of neighborhood streets. Call ahead so no wait. We love the... More

Great food and prices. Off the main road but definitely worth finding if you are looking for seafood to take-out. There are a few tables outside if you want to eat there.

Purchased fresh shrimp and clams for cook at home dinner. Worth the drive out Deep Hole Road to find it.

After striking out at the Crab Shack & Steamers for awesome blue crab a local steered me to this little hideaway. It's takeout only but worth it. This place knows how to cook seafood. Best Blue Crabs served on the Island hands down.

Take out seafood at it's finest. I got shrimp and steamers to take to a party and they were fresh and priced right. They offer oysters, crabs and locally caught fish too. Take it home to prepare yourself or they will steam it for you for a few extra bucks.
