    Good seafood place that has been in business for many years. Menu offers something for everyone, good seafood as well as some other non seafood items. I personally only go there for seafood so have no opinion of other menu items. All the fish is fresh and can be prepared the way you prefer. Not fine dining but fine food.

    There was only one choice of vegetables which was zucchini and it was soggy. I was not crazy about the flounder but the shrimp was good. The service was not that great but they were definately understaffed. I would not go back.

    The evening was just that a night out. As for The food nothing stands out. The oyster rockeller comprised of a few small size oysters not what you would nornally see elsewhere. When questioning the fish selections the waitress was clueless. The place is more like a destination for weekend warriors looking for a night out. Not as much a destination for experienced diners.

    We arrived 30 minutes early and waited at the bar until our appointed time. The bartender and patrons were very friendly and the time passed quickly. The hostess came to seat us right on time. We sat at a booth which featured a glass topped table I’ve a shallow sandbox with interesting and cute sea shells. The waitress was nice and offered good advice to assist us in ordering our meals. We both started off with a cup of She Crab soup which my wife raved about but which I thought was too mildly flavored. Still good tho. For dinner my wife had a “market” salad which is a large salad of field greens and spinach with tomatoes, cucumber, red onions and croutons topped by the market fish of your choice. My wife chose mahi and had it grilled and topped with the “Carolina” toppings which is a balsamic chutney redux. The salad was very nice and the mahi was a generous portion which turned out to be a little too bland and left my wife wishing she’d followed the waitress’ recommendation and ordered it blackened. I ordered the fried oysters with fingerling potatoes and green beans. This was a generous portion of oysters, probably 15 or more. They were fried nicely and had a nice flavor. The sides were very good although several of the the fingerling potatoes were of the dark variety which are not my favorite. Unfortunately the oysters were served with only a single slice of lemon. No cocktail sauce, no ketchup, no tartar sauce. The oysters were very good anyway and I enjoyed them very much. I asked and did get some cocktail sauce but found that I enjoyed them more without it.

    Food was absolutely fabulous. Fresh fish caught Daily, as we ordered we watched the fresh catch board diminish. The grits and lobster cream is amazing

    We found this as a recommendation off yelp and decided to give it a try. What a great place. The food was really good for the price. They had lots of fresh fish options along with multiple choices of seasonings, half price bottles of wine, and a good menu to choose from. We started with oysters, she crab soup and shrimp cocktail. They also bring out cheddar biscuits. We chose the grey tile and mahi for fish and both were amazing. Highly recommend the lemon caper sauce! Kids had crab legs. We had the cobbler flight for desert which was delicious. They have 3 dining options, out on a covered patio, the bar area and the dining room. Will be returning!!
