This may be one of he most unassuming, modest restaurants you've ever seen. From the outside it looks more like a shore shack, but that's the aesthetic! You know you're getting the real deal.

So what did OnlyInYourState have to say about this place?

"The best local catch has been fried up, and can be had as a sandwich or in a basket with fries. All the fried options are excellent... However, the real highlight here is crabs - perfectly steamed and served with a flavorful seasoning when the fishing season is in full swing."

They also have a great mix of other dishes, including salads, pork and steak!
