It was Beach Week for Duke, and this was the first seafood restaurant that we hit up. The wait was pretty long for a Sunday evening but it made me think that the place must be coveted enough. When we got in, we walked on quite a few peanut shells and then I realized that those were from the buckets of peanuts given to every table. It was actually a bit hard for me to make myself "litter" like that but it actually made a lot of sense. The peanuts were just the right amount of salty.

I ordered a two-item platter with my roommate that actually ended up being smaller than we had both expected. We got the fantail shrimp and the fried oysters. I thought the shrimp was excellent but that the oysters were not that great at all. The fries were very basic and the slaw was pretty decent. For how much it cost, I didn't think it was worth it.

What ended up being quite worthwhile was the ice cream key lime daiquiri I ordered. Though it was $9, the immensity of the drink that came out did not have me complaining one bit. With a key lime pie, key lime ice cream, Bacardi rum, and several other ingredients, this was by far one of the best drinks I've had when I've been out. The ice cream overpowered the alcoholic taste of the rum, and the whole key lime-ness of the drink was fantastic. A wonderful drink - it saved the evening.
