We arrived just in time on a late Saturday afternoon as they were not crowded. But, by the time we left, there was a line down the stairs. Food was just average. My friends enjoyed their pulled pork sandwiches but not memorable as delicious.

Food wasn't bad but it was primarily fried or grilled seafood. Pretty standard fare for this type of restaurant.

Local family friendly place with fried food options and ice cold beer. Staff is wonderful and attentive. Give the grouper bites a shot. So won't be disappointed. Enjoy

Just arrived in Myrtle beach and needed a quick lunch. This place offered great quality seafood at a reasonable price. Kind of awkward when I walked in and waited a few minutes before one of the waitresses acknowledged me, but the service was great!

Busy like every place else but the staff is very nice. Food is good. I ordered the shrimp boil but most of the menu was fried food.

Ocean view from our outside seating. Great breeze even though hot and humid. Waitress could have been better, seemed like her mind was somewhere else but ok. Our first visit and hubby got a shrimp basket. He says shrimp were lightly breaded and fried perfectly....More

Enjoyed their po boy sandwiches and steamed shrimp. Always looking for local fare, not chain restaurants. Our waiter was very friendly although stumped by the request of bourbon with grapefruit juice! Lol Nice place, reasonable prices.

Food great. Service great. Always a great choice for seafood away from crowds of Myrtle Beach. Sometimes you will wait but not tonight.

My wife and I shared the seafood combination platter. The fried clams and flounder were our favorite. Reasonably priced and the strawberry daiquiri was delicious. Enjoy the porch swings while waiting for your table. If you have a large family to feed on a budget,...More

Waitress was super friendly and provided great service. The whole family had a great lunch, definitely will come back. Also you have to eat the pickle nickles.
