We've passed this restaurant at least 20 times and finally made the time to stop in. OMG!!! The butterflied shrimp were the best we ever ate. We went at happy hour and the steamed oysters were half price and they were so good!!! We looked at the ocean across the street the entire time. The service was terrific!! This is... More

Thank you so much for the review. So pleased that you enjoyed the butterfly shrimp. It is one of our signature items. Try our fresh catch of the day tacos next time you are in. They come with some coconut breaded butterfly shrimp on top. Thank you for making the drive to dine with us, we greatly appreciate it. More

You can sit upstairs and look at the beach or you can sit down below at the bar or on the lawn chairs and relax with a drink. If it's a nice day its beautiful. Can't comment on the food, as we didn't eat.

The food was great although the waitress didn't tell us about the seafood platter, otherwise I would have ordered it.

What can I say ? .... We were cruising the beach road on the third day of our winter vacation and ran into this little spot along the ocean. It advertised " fresh fish " but you seldom get the real McCoy at other places. In a nutshell - the fresh snapper was as good as it gets - we... More

We have our fresh fish brought in daily so you do not have to worry about getting any frozen imitations here. Our Happy Hour Oysters are the best deal around along with some of our other Happy Hour Items like our Freshly Made Ceviche. We look forward to seeing you again! Thank you! More

Another five star experience! Of course, we do our homework and know this spot! Sit on the top deck and watch the ocean roll in........

If you want to savor beach side fresh "catch of the day", then this place is it. Planning on just a quick snack led to a long stay past dinner to enjoy the live entertainment. Not only does this cafe serve up fresh caught fish, but also it has a raw bar where fresh oysters by the dozen were amazing.... More

We were actually staying in Ormond, but were looking for a close fun place for good food and drinks. We found ALL of that here. We got a crazy appetizer that was like a tower of seafood! Two different types of oysters, HUGE shrimp and mussels! Kids had burgers and fries, hubby and I fish and chips!! Delicious!!
