Good food. You get a decent amount for the price. Service was not so good. Waitress rarely came to check on us, and the bus boy started clearing the table before I was able to get all of my stuff off of it. Definitely don’t go near closing time.

Once a year we get a vacation and want to eat good seafood. Definitely didn’t get it here. The food is way overpriced for the quality and the food was nasty. The tarter sauce and cole slaw were hot. The place was dirty and our waitress was forgetful and not attentive. It was the only place without a wait, this should have been a clue, but with small children we thought we would try it. First and last time here.

I think Captain Nance bought these google reviews. Could have gotten better food and service from Long John Silvers! Portions are small for the price.My son ordered a flounder sandwich, IT LOOKED AND TASTED GROSS! Our server did not refill our drinks EVEN ONCE! He forgot my husbands baked potato. We did not even tell the waiter because he acted to hurried to even care ( he had No tables at the time!!!). My fish was cold! We sat for about 20 minutes while he finished his closing duties and waited on a different table. WASTED TIME, WASTED MONEY!!

Very Good Seafood! We ate at this location for lunch. All of us ordered the two item combo with flounder and shrimp. The food was very good and tasty. The flounder especially was delicious.

Breading, frying, and excess butter/salt on baked fish detract from the flavor and quality of fresh seafood and run contrary to a healthy diet. Marine animals made no small sacrifice for our meals. Out of respect for them, the Captain needs to step up and provide stronger culinary leadership for his crew.

CRABLEGS! That's really all that I need to say. We were actually heading to another spot close by for dinner but got turned off because they were NOT practicing social distancing during the pandemic. We landed on a jewel by accident. Our server was super sweet and attentive. We chose outdoor seating and had a really nice view. The hush puppies were sooooo good. I generally only eat one or two but hubby and I scoffed down the entire basket!My friend who joined me and I chose crab legs and they were phenomenal. An ample portion, these crab legs were lightly seasoned but the drawn butter enhanced the flavor. Cannot wait to return. Guess what I will order? Yep, crab legs!
