We passed this place on a cold March evening, saw the sign for 40% off entries on Wednesdays during off-peak season, and decided to stop. It was crowded, but the staff was friendly and efficient, and the 30-minute wait passed quickly. My husband had the 3 seafood combo platter (lightly breaded and fried shrimp, oysters, scallops) and I opted for... More

I had the blue cheese angus burger with Chef's Veggies and it was outstanding! My husband enjoyed the shrimp scampi. It is obviously a favorite of the locals! Would definitely dine here again!

It was just out of the blue that we ate here and we were not disappointed. It was a Sunday afternoon in February and that would make a difference if it was June or July. The service was great and between the chowder and our meals we loved everything with not one complaint. This place has it all with the... More

Food is great and server was a great guy. We had to make a little noise to get recognized for service. Please if you go in the side door by the bar on the north side of building you want get any kind of recognition. Just scream out for a while they seem to finally understand that you need service....

Had lunch there. The inside is nice and clean. I had the Seafood chowder. I was not impressed. It was kinda runny not as thick as, I thought it should be. I also had the oyster po boy. It was good and the homemade chips were good too. They were fresh when I got them. There was nothing remarkable about... More

Nice atmosphere. Great and friendly service. Food is pretty good. I've been here once before a couple years ago and had a good experience then as well.

After a brief pause from this place just going elsewhere, not for any other reason, returned today and it was better than before. Menu had changed a little. They put the shrimp burger back on the menu, changed the chicken sandwich for chicken lovers, added a Shrimp PoBoy, and the Shrimp and Mango Quesdadilla was no longer an appetizer but... More

The fish and chips were great. It is a restaurant and bar but many tables away from the bar as well. There were very few chooses of restaurants that were open after Christmas but this was a good choice. The service was quick and efficient and the food was tasty.
