I am a repeat customer and always find the food to be appetizing. I usually have shrimp and scallops with a baked potato. Recently I went in for lunch to take back to the office.

This seaside decorated resturant, that may have been a Red Lobster in another life, should consider hiring someone from Red Lobster to show them how to cook seafood. The "sea scollops" were small bay scollops, the fried shrimp were over fried and dry as if they sat for some time before being served, the baked potato was cold like cooked... More

Beware of LOW B sanitation grade. We didn't eat after seeing that. Will take my business where they will take time to care about their property

Lunch specials on white fish and/or oysters are the most inexpensive that you will find any where. The slaw, baked potato, & sweet tea made for a tasty meal.

This is a good place to go for seafood in Waynesville. A very good assortment of both fried and broiled selections. Scallops were very good as well as the stuffed red snapper. The only snafu was that the salad was served about 60 seconds before the main course. The problem es are very reasonable.
