This place has a great view if you can get seated in that area. Luckily we were and that helped as we waited 25 minutes for service.

They were extremely apologetic once they realized and comped a few things on our bill to make up for it.

The food is pretty typical for the area and it a bit stuck in a couple of decades ago as far as preparation goes. Lots of fried foods. However, I wasn't feeling seafood and got the filet. It was delicious!

Went here for dinner o. Saturday night for Memorial Day weekend. We did not have reservations and although the restaurant was busy they were able to fit us in after a short wait. Our server Tammy was great. Even though she was extremely busy she managed to provide great service and also share a bit about the place she calls home. We left with full bellies and happy hearts. Considering going back tomorrow night.

Atmosphere is nice as it overlooks a small creek. The portions are ample. Cream of crab soup filled the cup, was chocked full of crab, and the best priced soup we had. Stuffed flounder was large but probably would not order it fried again. Special was fried oysters with broiled stuffed shrimp for $21 according to our waitress, however was billed at $22.95. Oysters were a nice size but were rather bland (we found this to also be true at other local restaurants and were surprised at the lack os saltiness). May consider coming back on next trip.

Our lunch-time waitress recommended this restaurant and told us they had a varied menu. That simply is not true. The Village devotes two entire pages to wine, and one page to its entrees. My mom had eaten seafood the night before and was led to believe there would be many other items to select from. Unless she wanted a huge steak, there simply was nothing. We had a nice table by a window where we watched a duck family float by, and that was the highlight of our meal. My coconut shrimp were large and plump but nearly burned. My mom did not like her French onion soup and described it as "watery." Nearly everything on the menu was $20 and up; if that does not concern you, then you might like the seafood. I just hope yours is not dried up.

We had a beautiful waterfront view and both of us ate the stuffed flounder, it was very fresh and the crabmeat was fabulous. The wine was a great value too. The fried calimari was great. Service was excellent.
