We enjoyed an amazing dinner outside. The laid back atmosphere is perfect for a breezy summer night. We had the flounder and shrimp which are both locally sourced and they were equally delicious. I will go back again and again and again....

Great food! The hush puppies, crab cake, low-country boil, jambalaya and shrimp dishes were excellent. Not a fancy place, but right on the dock. Great food, wonderful service.
