The staff is awesome!!! We sat outside the weather was perfect. Quick service. We had a couple drinks, domestic beer, nachos, flounder sandwich, and she crab soup. Soup was good. It is standard fried food. If you like that food you will like this spot.

FRESH Flounder Friday plate was outstanding. Cooked just right with fries, slaw, and hushpuppies. Cold drinks too.

She crab soup delish. Pizza, spinach and feta so good. Cozy area with a bar. Waitstaff friendly. Prices reasonable. Will be back.

Nothing to write home about. I wasn’t thoroughly impressed. Could have been better in a lot of areas. I would give it another chance.
