Live music, on the water, and Oysters!

Live music & lively people enjoying being on the water. Great atmosphere with a lot of nostalgia lurking. Enjoy the salty people - they are most likely checked out or FLO GROWN.

This place has it all. Great fresh seafood right at the dock! Can get a bit over busy and difficult to be seated for dinner so get there early. Band starts too early in my opinion and makes finding any seating there difficult. Overall, a great place to go!

The food wasn't GREAT but not bad either, it's like a fisherman village. If you are looking to buy FRESH seafood to eat or take to your hotel and cook yourself, this is the place, they have a little shop were they sell FRESH caught crabs and fish, also the kids can buy live bait, haha. We spent a lot... More

We were pleased to find outdoor seating with a view of the water. Our waitress was very accommodating and allowed us to purchase a seafood sampler to share. The food was delicious!

Went by boat to check it out. Not many places to dock but view is awesome. Very long line but no one complained. 2 blackened grouper sandwiches were awesome. Sons hamburger was just ok. Beer was very cold and reasonably priced. I think there are 3 places in Cortez on the water and can't wait to try others before going... More

This is off the beaten track but a great find. Only covered outdoor seating. The best grouper sandwich u will ever eat! They have a fresh fish market right next door, I brought home red snapper to make for dinner. If u are looking for a nice meal especially fish in a margaretville setting this fun.

We stopped here when family was in town and it was good. The atmosphere and service were great. The food is your usual local choices food. While it is good, there are better places, however, the views are nice because it is on the inter coastal.

We had lunch here during our first visit to the island. We had great food and good service. Our food was delivered promptly and the beer was nice and cold. The portions for lunch were very good sized. It is located right next to the fish house and bait shop so some might be bothered by the smell. We found... More
