Take out

Very busy place. If you go for the fried fare, it's probably really good. Got take out for the family and most everything was good. I ordered the boiled shrimp, but did not like the seasoning. Way too salty. Wish I had known it wasn't just simple peek and eat. Buzz kill! The scallops were good, as... read more

It looks like a hole in the wall, but totally great seafood. We got the trio of fried shrimp, oysters, & clams. Very lightly fried. The oysters were my favorite. Huge. Loved it

It was a stormy night so ordered take out fried clam strips and scallops to bring back to the condo. It was a 30 minute wait and when my husband went to pick it up he said there was a wait to be seated also so glad we got take out instead of waiting with the kids. The fried clam... More

This is our restaurant of choice when we go to Amelia Island. It is not fancy, doesn't have a great view but has wonderful, quality seafood at reasonable prices. The tartar sauce is some of the best I have ever eaten. The service is top-notch as well.

My wife and I ate here for the second time and were not disappointed. This restaurant is an excellent value. The service is tortoise slow but the food is worth the wait. I imagine the reason service is slow is the crowd was waiting outside the front of the restaurant before we arrived and after we left. I had the... More

We arrived around 5pm and the placed was not packed at all(around 7pm it was completely filled). But did not get our food till... More

Seafood joint in seaside town. Just what you want and expect. Great food, no ambiance...you have to look somewhere else and pay more for that

When we walked into the place, my wife and I looked at each other "like what have we gotten ourselves into" The restaurant looks like a convert Captain D restaurant. But for the food, may have been the best shrimp I have ever eaten. If you are going for the food and not the atmosphere, this is the place to... More
