We had the fried shrimp, crab cakes, crab and artichoke dip and the nachos which were okay but nothing great. Service was pretty quick. Server was nice. We had fun watching the people fish and catch the crabs. The desserts sounded good but we were all to full to order any dessert.

Group of 6 had the pleasure of sitting on the roof top deck at one of the glider tables for Mothers Day lunch. Wonderful day, great weather, perfect views and good food. Nothing fancy, heavy on fried food, but still tasty and enjoyable.

We had a party of 32 people and had outstanding service. Shout out to our server Jessica as she was with our group over 3 hours. We had appetizers and drinks. Recommend the crab & artichoke dip and she crab soup. Main entrees were good and served hot. A variety of desserts as well. Thanks for a great time!!!

The ocean view is the only reason to visit this restaurant. We visited at dinner time and the sunset was spectacular. The food was reasonably priced but the portion sizes were very small.
