Not worth the trouble to find it. Bad service. The fried shrimp and fried oysters looked the same. Shrimp were soft and almost mushy. Did not give me what I asked for. Hushpuppies were so so.

Beautiful view of the inland marsh. Awesome food and service. If you want to eat local this is the place. Food is always good and service is exceptional. Seafood is always fresh, drinks are really good. A “local” favorite. You can’t go wrong here.
