A great place to enjoy a nice dinner. All four of our dinners were well prepared and very tasty. Service was a little slow, but would attribute that to the virus situation (limited staff). All staff were very friendly and polite. The Hush Puppies are excellent! Highly recommended.

Slightly above average food served by attentive, friendly staff in a state park lodge type of building with nice marsh views. The parking lot was a bonus. I would go again.

Despite short staffing, service was excellent. The food is always good. It was the perfect Mother's Day dinner. We have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. They handle reservations very well but they are definitely needed.

We have never been disappointed. This was the first visit to a restaurant for my parents since the pandemic began last year. We were so excited to see that one of the specials was the crispy scored flounder with apricot chutney. Of course, the hush puppies were wonderful as usual. And the salad was served in a chilled bowl, which is essential.

Just took the time to come catch up with some old friends. Though there was a notice they were short staffed when you came in you wouldn’t have known it. Our server was amazing and the food was delicious as usual. The grouper was a little over cooked was the only negative for the night. Otherwise perfect!

Brought another couple with us who had not been to restaurant. Made reservation on open table. We were seated by the very nice lady hostess. Waitress remembered my husband and I from a previous time. Everything was right on. You guys are awesome. Keep up the good work and looking forward to dining with you again soon

Split a wedge salad. Plenty for 2 people and very fresh, cold and crisp. Shrimp and scallop risotto was flavorful and full of shrimp and scallops Fresh seafood and full size. My husband had the chicken linguini but did shrimp instead of chicken. Again full size fresh shrimp with excellent flavor He thought it did not need the cheese because the sauce was so flavorful. Hush puppies are always a treat! Mint mojito was also very fresh and flavorful. We don’t dine here a lot but when we do it is always worth the trip!! We loved our table by the window and it was high tide!

Joe the bartender is gracious. He remembers people and is professional and friendly at same time. One of the reason we go there is because of him. We also like to eat at the bar area because of him.

We had the grouper and shrimp & grits and they were very good as always. The service was very slow for main course and salads were never cleared. Pandemic problems I’m sure.

Our perfect meal began with complimentary hush puppies and honey butter! Followed by mountains of delicious seafood and the best grits and collared greens we've ever had. Highly recommend for a local and quaint and exquisitely delicious experience on the marshy side of a trip to Savannah/Tybee.

There were 2 large parties which makes it a bit noisy. Not sure if anything could really be done or if it is really an issue. Excellent food and service considering the requirements of the wait staff and kitchen.

First time to this restaurant based on good ratings from OT and other sites. However, this evening was Very disappointing. While the service was very good the quality of the food was very poor. Very lumpy She Crab soup; tasteless Crab-dip appetizer. Most disappointing were our entries: Grouper and the night's special, Red Snapper. Both fish dishes were SIGNIFICANTLY over salted - to a point they are almost uneatable. Will not return to this restaurant and will not recommend. We understand that most restaurants are suffering from staff shortages but this should not compromise the quality of there product. Having had two very good seafood meals in downtown Savannah the 2 nights prior, this was a wasted trip. Very disappointing evening.

Went for anniversary dinner. Arrived a little early for reservation and waited a few minutes before we were seated. Waitress was prompt and friendly. Served complementary hush puppies and they were so good. I had broiled tilapia & scallops which were delicious. My husband had steak & a baked potato which he said was good too. Overall had a great experience.
