Simple preparation is key at this seafood-centric eatery just blocks from the working docks in Hampton. It’s an airy, open spot with exposed brick walls and a long bar inside and a charming outdoor patio out back. About that bar, it’s made with 40,000 bright copper pennies and took 23 days to complete. But we digress. The seafood, the seafood. Don’t miss the crunchy potato chip– crusted crab cake with a generous serving of pimiento cheese rice pilaf. It’s like two Southern treats on a single plate.

If it’s spring and the epicurean gods are smiling upon you, the special board will list “drum ribs,” meaty swords from the mighty fish, breaded, fried and flaking right off the bone. Don’t think of getting anything else. Other times of the year, savor what might be the last honest $5 crab-cake sandwich on the planet or some biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

The bar offers 20 seats at the L-shaped counter and a few tables, and a few private eating spaces are tucked off the main dining room.
