"His fried fish is by far the freshest and best I have tasted in the area, sourced each early morning from local purveyors. His blackboard spills with dishes that make you feel like your grandmother was taking care of you—slow simmered greens, an excellent potato salad, crispy fried chicken, porky black-eyed peas, cole slaw, mac and cheese, a very solid Minorcan chowder. All the classics are there, plus a few pleasant surprises—hoecakes, chicken gumbo, shrimp and grits, homemade preserves and sauces. Even his breakfast menu wakes you up grinning: fish and grits, biscuits and gravy, fresh sausage made, like almost everything else, in house daily. Admit it—you’re hungry now, aren’t you?..."

"We had lunch. Everything was fresh and cooked from scratch using local fish, chicken and vegetables. The Flounder and chicken were both delicious and the portions generous. We had fresh Lime-ade. The Restaurant also sells their own hand made preserves like 'Prickly Pear Pepper Lime Jam'. All in all, very friendly and relaxed. As it is located at the end of a shopping center, we would never have found it if it had not been recommended to us by a local fisherman". - February 2011
