Everything about this place was awful. The food, the service, the manager, the hostess, EVERYTHING.

We waited for about 15 minutes and our table still had not been greeted by anyone. I got up to ask the hostess which one our waiter was because we had given a drink order yet or anything. The hostess comes back 5 minutes later to take our drink order. Another 15 minutes passes before our waiter comes back w/ our drinks. He takes our order. We order an appetizer and our meals. 45 minutes later our appetizer comes out, which was just fried pickles, those do not take long to cook. 2 minutes after our appetizer arrives our food comes, and it is COLD. it has clearly been sitting there. It is obvious that our food had been sitting there and he forgot to enter the appetizer, so he had to rush that out so our food sat there. I ended up getting a manager to send my food back because i was not going to eat cold fried shrimp, cold baked potato, and cold hush puppies. We never received a drink refill, and when i get the bill, my food is still on the check. DANNY was the worst waiter ever. The manager was rude, did not apologize or offer to bring me anything new. Do not eat here.
