Winston’s offers rustic charm with wooden interiors and repurposed wine crates throughout. It’s old-fashioned, but the chandeliers add a chic touch.    

What to Eat:
Start with a selection from the raw bar including shrimp, oysters, and clams or the Citrus Caribbean Salad.  Follow that with the Sautéed Crab Meat or the Fisherman’s Pot of the Day.

Little Creek is charmingly quaint in all the right places.  Seating space is limited with a few tables outside, but its atmosphere is fun for the whole family.

Oysters, of course! Try the “Shuck Your Self” bucket or one of their oyster flights (accompanied with tasting card).  The “Marion V” chowder is a fine choice too.
