We keep stopping in here every chance we get. Tonight we got here just before closing. I had a simple chicken salad sandwich, and a cup of eastern shore chowder. Huge chunks of chicken. Awesome. My wife had okra, bean soup, and their terrific cornbread....More

Ran here for take out tonight around 8:15. Crab soup was great but no crackers....fried crab cake sandwich was good. We bought some candy at the front check out. Not one staff member said thank you, which was strange. Food was very quick.
