This location is right on the beach and out window was actually open to the beach. The food was excellent! Our group of 8 menu choices included the steak medallions/scallops, grouper, cheese grits and more. The service was OUTSTANDING! One of the best meals we've had in the area! Can't wait to go back next year.

Went with my girlfriend and we both got the early bird specials which were of a nice proportion. The staff was friendly and helpful with local information. The food was provided quickly and was fresh in nature (Fish/Scallops). The open windows with a view of the gulf make for a nice atmosphere!

We were seated by an open window over looking the gulf, which made for a lovely evening. I was unimpressed by the food. Not to say it wasn't good; it just wasn't impressive. I had the... More

If you are hungry do not attempt the early bird special as it is essentially a half portion of a dinner that is normally served. I felt fairly deceived by the advertising for this. I had 2 teaspoons of bay scallops my fish was the size of a Doritos. Other than the utter disappointment over my meal everything else was... More

Let's face it, New England has out of this world seafood, I'm born and raised... So living in the South now, I can be hard to please. This place was amazing. Food was so worth the money. Can't wait to go back next month!
