Great Seafood!!!

Our server Tommy really knew his stuff and recommended the Hog snapper, Which we'd never had and it was great. Definitely recommend the outdoor patio out back, especially with kids! Fair price for the quantity and sushi was adequate as well. We'll be back next time we're in town.

Enjoyed 2 of their fresh catch fish 'big fish style' which has jasmine rice, spinach, scallions, ginger in an Asian preparation. We had salmon, and amberjack both of which were great. Also enjoyed dessert of key lime pie and gelato,. Great service from Jason.

The sushi was delicious, reasonably priced and quickly prepared. What more could you possibly want? I will be back as often as possible.

We stopped by for lunch on our way to Pensacola and were at first surprised at the strip mall location of this restaurant. The interior is completely different from the exterior though, and has great atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly and our waitress was able to tend to us and a loud bachelor party with ease and a smile.... More

Appreciated the less touristy atmosphere from this place (vs a Cosmo's or similar tourist trap restaurant). Nice and relaxing atmosphere inside and an extensive menu. You can't go wrong with the sushi here.

Excellent fresh food freshly prepared in a pleasant outdoor setting. Appropriate service and pleasant wait staff. Grouper big fish style was amazing. Worth every penny.

Definitely worth visiting. Had both lunch and dinner while visiting Orange Beach. The firecracker shrimp are absolutely delicious. Shrimp and grits are some of the best. Seared scallops with fried rice were delicious. A definite must try restaurant.
