Another great restaurant at the beach. Had the home made chips and their honey mustard sauce - yummy!!! Had the bowl of Lobster Bisque - to die for. Even though it looks like a whole in the wall - it's not!

This casual restaurant is a gem if you are a seafood lover and offers so much diversity on their menu that you will find it hard to choose. They serve the best Bloody Mary you will find anywhere.

Located in the centre of Deerfield Beach. Traditional interior and very nice seafood. Large menu. In high season you need to reserve table.

Atmosphere was light, and... More
