We heard about this place from the gentleman we rented bikes from. It was across the street from our hotel so we decided to try it. The portions are huge, great service, very clean---we ended up eating there three times during our stay! Highly recommend--the seafood is so delicious!!!

Come here periodically and generally the food and service is pretty good. Came the Sunday evening of New Year's weekend after going to a movie about 7:00 pm and it was probably in the process of closing down. We got the senior's seafood platter for two and the food was very average...bordering on poor. The side order of friend okra... More

I went there because it was across the street from my hotel and was pleasantly surprised. As a Florida resident, obviously I am used to good seafood and this was in that range of casual, large portions and fair pricing.

Very informal setting but comfortable. My husband had the crab stuffed flounder and he said it was very good. I had the catfish fillets. Some of the fillets were very wet when I cut into it. The taste was ok. I wouldn't order that again

This is one of our families go to seafood places. The ambience isn't much, but the fired seafood is very good. They give huge portions. If you a want a fried seafood platter at a good price, you will not do better.

Food okay, atmosphere lacking, needs updating, scallops tasted bland with too much Old Bay spice (to cover the blandness, perhaps?). Staff friendly, but probably will not be back.

Tried the cod fish and chips with coleslaw. The slaw was warm which is not a good sign. The French fries were overlooked and rather hard. The fish was tasty but the batter was tasteless. They must have used a batter mix instead of fresh batter. The addition of beer to the batter would have made a huge difference to... More
