“Decent food, cheerful service..”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Went there on review from a family member, food was good, server was cheerful and attentive. Special was catfish, they said it was a big portion, what they didn't say was that it was "nuggets" never less it was pretty good just not what I was expecting.

Decor needed revamping, liked the TV especially when we were given the remote..I have been there several times always the same 1 server, not sure why but when more than a few tables get seated she has her hands full. One might feel neglected a bit, overall a small decent place to eat. Oh I forgot to mention the wings....very good!

“New place tryn to get started...”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

I have tried this place numerous times. Being a bbq an seafood lover, I was really excited. Grand Opening was horrible. Small portions an very slow service. Gave it a few months an everything seemed to improve, but still not alot of food for your money. BBQ was nothing special, but seafood seemed decent.

Hopefully they will work on their weakness an survive. Its a neat little spot. We need a good seafood place in town. But two other places are better known for seafood an bbq.

“Great new restaurant !!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

My husband and I were asking a lot of the locals in regards to dinner. We had someone mention High on the Hog. Boy, we weren't disappointed. It was very good! I had the brisket sandwich, great flavor. My husband had the 3 plate special and really enjoyed it. The waitress was nothing but friendly and helpful during our visit. Yummy apple bourbon cake as well!!

Would certainly return for another visit!!
