“Wonderful meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Our waiter,Tyrone was exceptional! Recommend the shrimp & gritts, to my husband and I had the fried shrimp. Both dishes were wonderful! My husband loved the grilled asparagus and asked the chief how he cooked it! Overall experience very good!!

“Keep driving to the next town”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

The food was ok. We weren't expecting great since this clearly is not a five star establishment. This is what you would get if Red Lobster was a Mom & Pop joint.

The service was absolutely horrible. Our waiter was nice enough but our drinks were empty virtually the entire meal. It was a mid-90s South Carolina day so fluids were a necessity. At first, we thought it because he was new but it seemed to be typical for the restaurant. Several servers and the hostess walked past us with empty glasses and dirty plates clearly visible.

The only reason this was a two star rather than one was the musician playing. It was reminiscent of a Bill Murray lounge singer skit but we loved it.

The table sign says it all. If you are waiting more than 30 minutes for your meal, please let us know. Our total meal was two hours and nearly all of it was spent waiting... Don't waste your time too.

“Would recommend this to anyone in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Our waiter, Patrick, was excellent. He even had the chef come over to the table so we could rave about his 'Salmon' dish.
He deserves a raise: very courteous, all business, and made us feel extra special.

“Seafood Oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

If you're looking for seafood away from the coast, not a bad choice. Classy atmosphere. Friendly service. Ordered shrimp and grits. Grits on the creamy side, but good. First time there, I'd go back.

“Great Food and Interesting Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

The server was friendly. We ordered shrimp and flounder that was very tasty and reasonably priced. . They also have a musician on Fridays who provided very nice backgound music. This restaurant has been upgraded since we visted it several years ago.
