Good experience, sat on the porch which was really nice, food was good but not a lot for the price. Excellent hush puppies. Not a fancy place, but great for a relaxing evening of eating seafood at the beach

The food was average, our server was great, and the teenage hostesses treated us rudely, disrepectfully, and arrogantly. I guess they assumed we would never be back...the joke's on them because we live in the area. I'm sure there are friendlier places that will appreciate...More
