Great Seafood Selection & Gluten Free Options

I have been gluten free for 18 years by necessity - we spend several months a year in NW FL and eating out is frustrating (much fried food I can't eat)!!! Twice last month I asked I could get clam sauce with rice noodles and they said YES! So, I had white clam sauce once and red clam sauce... read more

We make a point to eat here at least two times each week we visit the area. We always get a dozen raw oysters and 1/2 doz baked. I tried classic and Southern Fella this week. Both were great. The oysters were on the smaller side this year so they gave us extra. Our daughter tried the alligator empanadas one... More

My group ordered oysters and a number of other delectable dishes that we all enjoyed. The view is wonderful, of the water and boats.

I think this must be a place the young folks like, because it was really noisy when we were there recently for dinner. Interesting concept -- you walk in and place your order at the counter, then find a table. Your food is brought to you, and servers are available if you need anything. It's clearly popular, and I have... More

We love the view but our food was not up to the review, sorry to say. Our oysters on the small size, crab cakes not good. Wish we had better news. May give it another try. Very nice staff.

The oysters were good, but it seemed everyone had great Oysters about now, Mar 15. Slightly strange setup-serving wise and didn't get the best vibe from the place. I had a clam pasta, it was good. My spouse had fried-shrimp and he said it was passable (breading was a little heavy).

Loved the atmosphere. I love oysters on the 1/2. Got the Moscow version to try and wished we had gotten another dozen straight up raw. Not bad but took away from the sweet flavor of the natural oyster. Crab cakes were wonderful and the gulf breeze thru the open porch windows made it all perfect. Laid back and so relaxing.... More

Good food, ate there two times. Oysters and crab cakes were very good. Beer is cold and the waitresses were friendly. Went there on recommendation of motel staff and was not disappointed. Restaurant is on second story of building overlooking river. Inside and out side seating. Pretty neat place. Leave the dress clothes at home, super casual. Go, you will... More
