The service was quick, friendly, and efficient. Though we usually don't like to sit outside, we chose to sit at one of the outdoor tables. With the fans blowing and a light breeze off the water, we were comfortable, even for our 1st day in the south in the 90's. My husband LOVED the conch chowder, we all shared the... More

The garlic crabs were great too, but again, it goes on market price, and it... More

Historic eatery located waterside. Indoor/outdoor seating. Old florida charm Great seafood. Garlic golden crabs cant be beat. Then throw ur shells into the water and watch the fish blast the surface trying to get them. Please dress accordingly as they do give you a wooden mallet to crack your seafoood on the paper covered tables. Lots of fun. Nice kids... More

The atmosphere was just as I thought it would be. Like dining on a fishing boat with 100 other hungry sailors. It adds to the ambiance - I loved it! I was daring enough to try the frog legs (delish). But then I'm a bit daring when trying new food. We went on a Friday night without reservations. The wait... More

This is an old time tradition for residents of Fort Lauderdale. Well off the beaten tourist path it is usually introduced to newbies and visitors by friends . This venue is perfect for so many reasons, the food is excellent, and it's a great place to bring family, friends, business clients, or even a romantic night out. It can get... More
