We four all enjoyed our dinners; it was what we expected at a coastal seafood restaurant. This was a busy place that appeared to have their act together for serving the standards plus the catch of the day. I had a sense that there was...More

Party of 17, had to wait about 35 minutes to get tables set up. Service thereafter was great, as was the food. I had the flounder & it was excellent.

The food was excellent from the appetizers to dessert!! You must try the fish dip. Russell himself visited every table. We have been visiting this area since 1978 and don't know how we missed it. Will be a stop on every future visit.

Was curious as to whether it was better than the Inlet Crab and Seafood restaurant. It is, and the service and ambiance is better. Go.
