Come for the fried seafood or diner specials, but don't expect the frills like formality and fancy presentation. The local construction guys and geriatrics love it so come if that is what you want. I grew up near Cape Cod and this is what we wanted. Come hungry but be patient. Kids are okay. Lunch and dinner offers the same... More

We stopped in for dinner based on recommendation from a local. Maybe just not a good night but we were disappointed in the fried and Steamed seafuood plates. The shrimp seemed to be mostly small shrimp with not much flavor, very much like shrimp from a frozen bag from the grocery store. The staff was certainly very friendly and prompt.... More

Visited here last year & was pretty impressed with everything we ordered. Not so on this trip......... Seated in reasonable amount of time, though greeter not very friendly at all. Empty tables abounded (went in after the dinner rush), but yet still took longer than I thought necessary. Waitress finally took order, made no mention of specials, took 10 minutes... More

With all the rave reviews about flounder here, we were sorely disappointed: we got the lemon pepper grilled flounder, which was overcooked, over salted and had an off-taste from imitation butter. Onion rings were soggy and oily, vegetables canned, hush puppies ok. The baked sweet potato was very good: the only thing that was fresh and unsalted. Our server was... More

Well, its a family favorite. The wife loves it due to it "southern" feel. The portions are massive and the sweet tea flows constant. Prices are good, and service is ok. Its a busy place, and usually requires a wait. The food is great. Well worth the wait.
