Poised to make a big splash as soon as its neighbor (the newly remodeled Carver Library) opens, this small takeout on Rosewood serves some of the best seafood in a town lacking in good, affordable oceanic options. The fare here is fried, but batters consist of a delicate cornmeal. The fish is fresh, flaky, and full o' flavor, and the hearty shrimp dinner feast includes generous portions of fries, hushpups, and sweet coleslaw. To round it all out, take a stab at the sock-it-to-me cake and their summer-quenching drink concoctions – basically batches of Kool-Aid-type mixes blended together for a satisfying sweet-tooth tang.
