This quaint, out of the way, restaurant and bar is wonderful! Not crowded at all today (Tuesday, March 3) the martini was very tasty, salad was a bit blah, the coleslaw was awful, but the crabcakes were FANTASTIC- probably the best I have ever had. And the sweet potato biscuits were AMAZING!!! I even got a few ro go. As for the cole ... read more

There was just something about this place that I really liked. It wasn't a fancy place just a good down home local place with some excellent food and excellent service. We had some amazing Virginia Oysters that were grown by the man at the table next to us! Then we had some more amazing oysters! Our dinners were the specials for ... read more

Great experience!  Not over priced.  Server was very friendly.  Got an extra piece of fish because the original piece I was given was too small per server even though I didn't request it.  Would definitely go back and recommend this place to people I know!

On my way to Virginia Beach last year. I wanted to show my granddaughter where her great grandmother was from. While going through town we decided to stop and eat.

A unique restaurant against the shore of a beautiful estuary. The view is especially captivating at sunset with sea birds flying over head with many large herons fishing outside. The food was good but very pricey. But a good destination spot if you want to explore.

A great place to spend a few hours watching the tide go in and out. Great views, great service, and the food was perfectly prepared. Bonus - crushed ice for the water/sodas/tea.

I also had the crab bisque which was very rich and delicious. Will definitely go back - especially in warmer months to enjoy outdoor seating.

Beautiful view of the water and some of the best fried shrimp I've ever had.  Definitely try the mac & cheese if they offer it as a side.   The sweet potato biscuits blew our minds, we bought a half dozen for breakfast the next day.  We will be back when in the area next. Thank you!

Went for "locals night". Had generous serving of cod, fresh tasting and with crispy breading. Sweet potato biscuit was perfect.waitress Anna was attentive. Only downside was a large noisy political event being held in part of restaurant. It wasn't the peaceful relaxing meal I was hoping for.
Mary Thomas via google.com - Jan 21, 2020
Favorite restaurant on the Eastern shore! The view is beautiful. You can eat outside and watch the sunset over the marsh. The sweet potato biscuits and different cakes they have for dessert are amazing.

I used to live on the peninsula many years ago and loved dining here, as well as take in the magnificent view. I had the occasion to drive up the shore and decided to stop in.
