When I read the reviews for this restaurant I thought it was going to be a tiny little place with lots of greasy and maybe overcooked food. But, since I am the adventurous type when it comes to food I decided to give it a shot. Luckily I was soooo wrong!
This restaurant is a fairly sized place. It has somewhere between 20 and 30 tables and booths. The decor is not top notch by far, but it's been fairly kept. The people working there were all very kind (Thank you if you are reading this! Keep it up!) prompt and helpful.
I had a bowl of clam chowder and a seafood platter. They were generously served. The clam chowder was creamy and savory. Just delicious. The seafood platter was all fried and it came with fish, baby shrimp, oysters, a devil stuffed crab and hush puppies.
Let me tell you that I am a seafood lover. I can never get enough! I have tried a lot of it everywhere (domestically and overseas). That been said, I have to tell you that EVERYTHING was cooked to perfection. I guess these guys, doing this for the past 50 years or so, have just got it right. Nothing was overcooked. Everything was moist and full of flavor. My favorites were the oysters and the baby shrimp. I loved the taste of the oysters, and the baby shrimp, even though they were by nature... well... little, they were moist and delicious. Prices were also not bad at all. The bill was under $17.
In summary, nice authentic place, good service and great food. What else can I ask for? Well, to be able to come back to Black Mountain again!
Thanks for reading!
