If you are over 60 and never been to a really good seafood restaurant you might like this restaurant. At least you will certainly fit in. To give this place anything above two stars is being extremely generous. To rate it excellent is beyond comprehension. We recently decided to give it another try after a terrible first experience based on... More

This is a great resturant that we have used for several years. The food is good and well prepared. This time of year it is busy so its best to go off the lunch or dinner hours. We belong to their email site where you give surveys about their resturant. On your wedding anniversary you get a drink or an... More

Very good fried oysters. Wish they had more choices for sides. A little run down and could use a remodeling. Overall food is good. I think a little pricy.

We had my birthday dinner here. The AMOB on the menu cover was appropriate; there was A MOB of people waiting to eat when we got there at 5:15 PM. The receptionist said it would be about a 45 minute wait, and she was close--we waited about 35 or 40 minutes to be taken to a table. My only criticism:... More

Clam chowder close to best I've ever had. Same with fried calamari! All in party had shrimp and all raved. One had battered fish also and said it was really good. We also had hush puppies, yum. If you go, plan on a wait at the door or make reservations. We arrived at 1pm and had a 20 min wait.... More

I stopped by for lunch after hearing about the restaurant from a friend. Even though it was raining, there was a beautiful view of the Manatee River from my table. The outside seating area looked great for sunny days. I ordered the fish and chips; they came out fast and hot, and they were really good. The service is fast... More
