Decided to stop in for the $13.00 seafood platter of mullet, oysters, shrimp and crab cakes. Upon walking the place was almost empty on a Saturday around 4pm. There was a large sign & stand, with menus, that instructs you to; take a menu, order at the counter and be seated at a table. At first glance on the menu you see your usual offering of fried seafood expected at an express or take out establishment. I found out that you can also order it blackened so my interest was peaked and decided to order. Selected the Blackened Mullet, Shrimp, Crab Cake and Oysters. Yeah...that should have been our clue to perhaps go elsewhere, LOL! Sat down at the tables with rolls of brown paper towels and napkin rolled plastic forks.
When the food arrived it was on a plastic sectioned plate. My husband and daughter ordered the fried version and everything looked like your standard fried fast food seafood but not greasy. The crab cake was expectedly small but "ball-ish." They liked the cheese grits side but didn't care for the fries. The mullet was about 3 times the size of a sardine and full of tiny bones. With mullet being so inexpensive, really expected a little bigger on a cheap type of fish. The blackened oysters where "shell-ish" because you apparently have to have a different type of license to serve them in the shell. With that said they we still a disappointment at about the size of a lima bean.
My blackened version was too salty and I should have sent it back but, as we know, that can be asking for trouble. The shrimp was popcorn sized and over cooked. The crab cake was ok. The best was the garlic green beans I had. They were really tasty!
The server and ordering cashier was very friendly and polite and offered me the opportunity to have the cook make me something else, which I appreciated, but again I didn't want to risk it ;) If you go, stick with the fried seafood and not the blackened.
Won't go back if I the area but would be a great place for families with small children.
