My family was in town from Texas. They loved the catfish, shrimp and oysters. We will visit again. I eat there with local friends as often as I can.

I took my mom here because she loves fried catfish and is quite honest if she doesn’t like it..... she loved it. The fish and the shrimp are really good. I plan to go back when I’m in the area.

The atmosphere is 5 star. Love all the old motors and nautical stuff. The fried catfish is 2 star. The fries was room temperature and not very good either. I think I will try bbq next time.
