$6 for a bowl of clam chowder. The potatoes were hard. No cracker. Waitress rushed us and was distracted by her friends. She didn’t bring straws out for drinks. She didn’t offer refills. She was in a huge hurry to get us the check. Disappointed

Loads of locals eat here. Casual and unpretentious. Food cooked fresh with a variety of fish on the menu. Give it a try.

Ordered take out. It was dinner time and the restaurant wasn't busy...only one table was occupied. Our fried shrimp was not good. It was tough and tasteless. The "sides" are very small-at least in take-out. The cheese grits were good as was the cole slaw....More

I'm not sure how someone who dines there could answer that question. It would be inappropriate for an employee to discuss their pay with customers. So I have no idea.
