Great, delicious food 😋 👌, with great prices. Seasoned to a T, with nice size portions. Not enough parking spaces, but you can make it work. Wide variety of food 😋 choices to choose from. Don't waste your time at J&J's, or C&H cafeteria. You can get fresh seafood, soul food 😋 and and any other food your heart desires. Great staff as well.

Good options for seafood or soul food. I think their portions for sides could be bigger. I got popcorn shrimp, fried oysters, and fish with 2 sides and hush puppies for about $20.00. Prices are great and food is even better.

Went in to pickup fresh shrimp and live blue crab. Was surprised to see they also had live crawfish! Went home and had an amazing boil with friends. Great selection of seafood. Would recommend getting there early. Lots of people grabbing the crabs up!

Great place for adorable fresh seafood. The crowd can be overwhelming so pick the right time to go. Haven’t tried their cooked seafood yet.

Food is made to order. You can call ahead and the food will be ready by the time you get there. Food is always delicious. I've never eaten anything bad here. Great employees.

I go mainly because I enjoy seeing the beautiful chocolate woman at the front with that sexy gap between her teeth. Other than that the cooked fish can be a hit or miss depending on demand and the cook. This time, my whiting tasted like water and the batter had no seasoning. It was just grease and mill. Next time I won't go during rush hour

This place will cover any of your meal desires. Fresh seafood on ice, it does smell VERY... "fishy". I guess that's the point. Not my personal favorite but... I do believe that it is a good place to buy your seafood.
