Be sure to arrive before 5pm if you want outdoor seating. It is worth it. The view was fantastic. The service was fantastic - food was good but not the best seafood I've ever had.

I have eaten here at least 3 times and have never had an bad time. The Oysters are my favorite and if you can get onto the deck that is best. I know they have plastic tables on the deck but when I go to a restaurant I am more picky about food and beverages. This restaurant is probably my favorite on the island.

Appetizers were great past that much of the meal matched the sanitation grade low B at best. Scampi was noodles and garlic butter and shrimp and grits tasted like a powdered sauce. Such a cool location and below average food.

Really fun place to sit out on the deck but have very low expectations when it comes to the food. You can’t go wrong with a drink and an appetizer. The lunch menu is a lot better than the dinner menu.

We went with out grandson and our three different orders were delicious! Oysters, flounder and bay scallops. The staff was friendly and accommodating.
