The menu has so many options you almost need 30 minutes to read it. The server was not as knowledgeable as I would have like. She did not have any recommendations. The food was GREAT! The many lunch specials are all $7.99. This could be a regular lunch spot!

Not sure why this restaurant doesn't get more attention! This was our second visit-had a great dinner here last year. Service was attentive, helpful and friendly. Meals were delicious-I had one of the specials-grilled shrimp and grilled grouper. Best shrimp I have eaten-seasoned but not overpowered. DH had seafood Alfredo-yum! Packed full of shrimp and scallops. I understand their lunch... More

We were here on a Sunday night. Quick service and wonderful food. We got the Winter specials and had more than we could eat. My husband had the shrimp and I had the grilled grouper with bacon wrapped shrimp skewers. Grouper was perfect,as was the shrimp and steamed veggies. We did leave enough room to split a piece of key... More

They have a $7.99 lunch special. Includes a entry and two sides. The fried grouper is crispy and light battered just like I like. The hush puppies are delicious. Get a side salad with honey mustered dressing to top it off. Ice tea is included in the special. Great food great price. This is our 2nd visit. Will be back.

We ate off the lunch menu here Thursday. All three of us ordered fish. We had grilled, blackened, and parmesan with different sides and everything was good. The waitress did a great job and the food came in a timely manner. It is located across the street from the gulf.

Now the Good News - The service was great. The cocktail sauce was very good. The hush puppy was EXCELLENT! Since the shrimp was... More
