Absolutely the best seafood we enjoyed all week! From the crab dip with freshly fried wontons, crab bisque, oysters & fried flounder sandwich - all were delicious. No frills, but worth the wait to enjoy a second time around!

There are picnic tables on the property where you could enjoy a takeout order with your furry friends. We do not provide waiter service to them. Non-seafood options are limited to sides and chicken tenders. Hope this helps!
