Fish was a tad " fishy" tasting but lightly battered and tender. Not overly seasoned. Sweet coleslaw, no onions, good. Good crispy fries. Nice size shrimp, nicely battered. Good hush puppies. Everything cooked to order.

The fried seafood was the best we've ever had, but the burgers were so salty they couldn't be eaten that's why we gave it three stars.

This is a good place to get lunch. The service was a little slow, but very friendly. The food was good, we really liked the catfish. My kids loved the paper boat that their food came in. Clean and well maintained restaurant.

A new addition on "gotta go eat" list when we are visiting the lake. I always get the shrimp poboy, but fish is delicious also. Love the slaw too. Cute casual decor. Friendly staff and great location for us. I highly recommend it!

Delicious! We ate with our family of five, and it was everything we heard it would be. The shrimp, catfish and hush puppies were our favorites.
