I ordered oysters they were ok just not near done and cold. Wife ordered fish it was completely dried out. It had been cooked way to long. Fries good and coleslaw ok. Been there twice and both times the food was the same.

This is my second trip to Elizabeth City and my third visit to this restaurant. The oysters on half shell were outstanding. I also had the crabmeat with butter and it was also great. They offer fresh seafood in season. Service was excellent too.
