Catch of the day is excellent. My wife had the grouper salad, it was great. I had the shrimp and grits. Great flavor with bacon. Not too spicey. Parking is a problem, but if you send someone in, they will valet for you.

We had a lovely dinner on the back patio. The service was excellent and our food was delicious. I had a shrimp pasta dish that I couldn't stop eating. Do not hesitate to give this gem a go if you are in the area.

Starting off with a glass of Ca. Cabernet from Ramsey Vineyards was tasty. Cracker shrimp w/chipolte aioli garnished with a nice citrus flavored spring mix ; pan sauteed local black grouper was light and tasty; local clams and grouper in a seafood fume was fresh, light and sublime. We sat outside where there was a really talented young female Natalie... More

We found this tucked away gem on Trip Advisor and are very happy that we did. It's a small restaurant in an old house on Bridge Street right near the bridge to the mainland (Amazing Fact #1). Wonderful selection of local beers and a nice wine list but the food is the real reason to visit. They serve only locally... More

This little restaurant ,with only a few tables, was excellent. Fresh, wholesome food. Unique preparation. The Thai grouper was amazing. Service was friendly but respectful, allowing you to enjoy your meal without constant interruptions. We liked it so much we ate their twice in four days! Best to make a reservation which conveniently can be done on-line.
