    Fried seafood galore. Open till late or is it 24hrs? Good fried shrimps & fried okra. The fried oysters were disappointing though.

    There are times I feel like it's pointless to call in your order...you shouldn't have to wait when you call in AND give them an Estimated Time of Arrival...#FAIL!!!
