Often busy and a bit overpriced. Because it is on the main strip, this place is continually busy. The prices are pretty high in my opinion, the food is decent. The service was good.

Thank you. I assure you seafood prices are at an all time high. We seek only the best seafood available. With that said, we are priced at or below other fine seafood restaurants in the area that specialize in local seafood. Sincerely, Ron & Staff

Good food and fun atmosphere. My husband and I ordered the crab dip and then shared the shrimp, oyster and clam boil. It was plenty for both of us.

Unfortunately no. I wanted steamed blue crab and no one on the island had them, including their seafood market. You may have better luck in Charleston. Good luck!
