I would go back and try something else with high expectations with the food after my experience there. My server was present and hel ... read more

We enjoy every bite. The Seafood Feast 5 different types of seafood is awesome. We went after a long ride of Peaches to Beaches. We've been several times and not been disappointed at all. We stayed in Pooler and it was a straight shot to River St. We will return I'm sure later in the year.
