Description: We specialize in New England style seafood, from creamy clam chowder to haddock and scallops. Our menu offers Daily Specials such as Homemade Lump Crab Cakes, Salmon Croquettes, and 1/2 off bottles of wine on Thursday. We have the freshest seafood on the Grand Strand. That's right we said fresh. Our seafood is so fresh we don't own a freezer. In addition, we offer Ipswich whole belly clams, poultry, and center cut steaks entrees. Save room for our decadent desserts!

We also visit this restaurant every time we are in Pawleys Island. We usually stop for lunch. The seafood is fresh and delicious and I love their potato salad. Fish and chips, lobster roll, shrimp, and scallops meals are fantastic.

Good low country cooking. Lots of locals eat here. Good service. Not fancy but very good. Try it if in the Litchfield area.

I am not usually a fish fan, but this haddock was cooked to perfection. The perfect flakiness, tender, golden brown, not too bready. The shrimp and scallops were delicious as well. My husband and I didn’t eat all of our rice or fries because the seafood was so phenomenal. To top it off, the Derby Pie was absolutely divine.

Spicey oyster appertaining is a must. Fresh, very light coating, and a hint of cayenne. Anything haddock is perfect. Fresh, sweet, and if fried just a hint of coating. Tbe accompanying shrimp were sweet and cooked perfectly. I don’t think you can find better tasting seafood anywhere on the Grandstrand. The bar looks amazing. Can’t wait for the next trip for appetizers and drinks at the bar.

Best haddock I've ever had in a restaurant.
Love the friendly atmosphere. Crazy about the wasabi ranch dressing. Very fresh ingredients always
