Great 2nd Visit

We ate here 2 years ago and loved it then. Big portions. Busy, beach decorated facility. Lots of things to check out. Indoor or outdoor seating. Always great food. Priced about average to a little higher than similar spots. Friendly staff

Huge plates! Rethink about sharing before ordering. We ate the shrimp and crab nachos, and are HUGE and good. As main course we order the Crab Stuffed Fish, and it was amazing. Couldn't have dessert, way too full.

Fun, vacation atmosphere with a menu that has something for everyone. The fish tacos are absolutely incredible. Huge serving size and delicious. Read lots of positive reviews about key lime pie but was underwhelmed. They went for quality over quality. But did I mention how incredible the fish tacos were?!

Food was EXCELLENT! Both fried and seafood was superb. Great decor with indoor and outdoor seating, plus volleyball on the beach makes it a great place to hang out.

The menu said the fish would be "flash fried" so I thought it would be lightly breaded, but it was very heavily breaded. The flavor was bland. The portions are huge, so bring an appetite. We ordered cocktails and they... More

Decent food, fish tacos are outstanding. It's directly on the beach and there's a lot of fun for the kids to have.
