Fresh always, we have been buying our fresh seafood there for years.

Fresh, stock is always whatever is in season. Local waters fish only. We always recommend them to non locals. Royal Reds are the best I've found.

This establishment is a fresh seafood market although, if previously notified, they will steam shrimp for you. It certainly doesn't look impressive on the outside but the fresh seafood and shellfish selection is great. The staff is just ok. I am certain they immediately knew we were tourists but a bit friendlier greeting and discussion of the products would have... More

Will pack to travel with wonderful fresh seafood. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We got closer head on shrimp, royal red shrimp, grouper, and mahi mahi. Some still frozen but I can't wait to cook it! The lump crab meat was fabulous!

I've been here several times. They have the best selection of fresh fish for sale. They even fillet the fish for free. They even have styrofoam coolers and will pack it for you to travel home with it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend the white snapper. Yummy!

The BEST and most affordable seafood source in the county! Clay and his team are personable, and always eager to help. I hate taking the skin off of fish (cuts my hands!) but the folks there always gladly do that task for me (husband hates the skin). Great selection and not the overhead of the pricey Destin stores.

We come here every year and buy seafood to cook while visiting. When leave for home, we stop, buy more, and they pack it up for us on ice and seal the container for the trip..Service is always friendly and helpful

We have bought our seafood fresh from this market. Always fresh, friendly and helpful staff. They will pack to travel. Our out of town guests love it, and always stop on their way home. Our favorites are Shrimp an Flounder. Royal Red Shrimp are to die for.
