My favorite gulf coast place. They fry the fish crispy just the way I like it. Top it off with a fresh brewed ice cold ice tea....ummmm. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Get there early it fills up fast. They also have several other stores now open along the beach highway.

Love the fried pickles. Everything we had was great. Will definitely go there again next time. Great lunch at the right price. If you go at lunch you don't have to wait as long.

Great food at affordable prices. Small quaint place, staff was very friendly, very busy at all times of day but worth the wait.

I've eaten at a couple different locations and experience the same mediocre seafood that's always served mushy and cold. No thanks.

The food was good and our waitress was great but there was a situation where my friend got hit in the head with a chair that another waitress was moving and when I asked the manager about crediting our ticket a few dollars he accused us of trying to get a free meal. The worst customer service ever from management.... More

We stopped here on our way into town. The only seats they had available were on the patio. We were worried about the heat but the misters and fans made it very comfortable. Our food was fast and delicious. Even the non-fish eaters enjoyed their dinner. The clam po-boy was overstuffed. The whitefish po-boy was very tasty. Everyone left happy... More

This is a go to spot for my family and I. It may take a while to get in for dinner, but once seated - the service is fast and friendly. The food is always good, always hot, always fresh.
