Told about this place by many locals as THE place for steak, which looked and smelled GREAT, but chose local fish, which was super fresh and delicious. Dinners come with salad and a side - a great deal these days. Had a great cocktail too...More

So glad you got a chance to check out our spot, Deborah! It sounds like you ordered well -- there's nothing like fresh seafood. So glad you enjoyed the salad, side, and cocktail as well. Sounds like a great meal! That said, we appreciate your...More

Drove past this place for the last two days reading "fine dining". Even though the locals said stay away we went anyway. I ordered a dozen raw oysters. They came on a warm plate without cocktail sauce, ice or anything. Just oysters on a plate...More

This was, hands down, fabulous. All five of us ordered a different meal and every one of us thought it was incredible. Aside from the food, our server was incredibly professional. The atmosphere was perfect.

Stopped here for a late lunch. Seated at a booth and watched the creek flow. Excellent soft crab sandwich with very tasty fries. Home made potato chips were very good. Hamburger cooked to exact specifications with chips. Very pleasant server.

I had oysters and clams on the half shell. They were delicious. Very fresh but the absolute best were the crab balls. My husband had the crab cake sandwich. He really enjoyed his meal. The waitress was efficient and very nice.

Food was excellent as well as service. You have many choices on the island, but this is a good one for lunch.

When we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation which we did not, but we were seated quickly anyway. Our server didn't come over to our table for quite some time. After about ten minutes we were assured by the hostess that our...More

Let's start with the food, it was just Ok. Nothing special. Seating on the patio was a nice idea, until we saw what they call The Patio. To many tables for such a small area. In no hurry to go back.

The food itself would have made the evening special, but it was greatly helped along by our excellent, friendly, local server, Jan. Busy place, fine for romantic dinner, reservation good idea!
