I've heard how good the oysters are from this area, but these were off the charts. Plump, juicy, and flavorful. If you enjoy oysters, this is the place for you. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The condiment bar for the oysters if fresh, full, and wonderful. The remoulade is so good! Definitely try this place when you are in... More

We have been coming to this area for five years and had never eaten here, so thought would give it a try. Glad we did, it is now one of our favorites. Grandkids were mesmerized by the view which kept them in their seats the whole dinner. Daughter had chimichanga, said it was really good but very spicey. Son-in-law had... More

Food and service are good. The only down side is they would not give out their Wi-Fi password. We were traveling with 2 teenagers, would have loved to had a few more cocktails and appetizers.

You can't beat this place for a gorgeous view. Beautiful oysters, tasty conch cakes, and a spicy gator burger (that my 9yr old enjoyed sans picante coleslaw). Superb key lime pie. My child ordered a parfait of moist pound cake, strawberries, and white chocolate sauce, which I recommend sharing. Every staff person we encountered was warm and friendly. I only... More

Enjoyed a lunch here on a sultry summer day. It was too hot, humid, and stormy to sit out on the deck overlooking the river so we got an inside table next to it and just imagined how nice it would be on lovely sunny spring day. Enjoyed the food which was a notch above the typical seafood or raw... More

We had a great meal here. Good views. I think ordering at the counter was the only thing I'd change about this place. The Mediterranean oysters were fabulous as were the fish tacos. Don't miss the sweet potato fries nor the fried green beans. Also very much enjoyed the crab cakes with fried green tomatoes... The remoulade was really good... More

This is a fun place to get great seafood. It's nice to relax and enjoy the view of the bay as they have seating indoors, outdoors and on the covered deck. It is very family friendly as it's a more relaxed atmosphere (you place your order at the counter) and they offer a kids menu. However, the food is really... More
