It's a comfortable laid back friendly stop not to be missed. You'll feel right at home and the ribs and pork b-b-q are both delicious. It's right on the water and definite a local favorite ...the nightly guitar entertainment will have you stating for one more beer.

The waitress was wearing nasty clothes. My friend most his appetite when she appeared. The food took a really long time and I ordered the lunch special. And it wasn't special. The fish was to be fresh but probably not. Not the kind of food you expect to get in the keys.

Went for Thanksgiving dinner since we had been traveling. Place was virtually empty, but food still took an inordinate amount of time to be served. My husband was so excited for a BBQ grill burger and I got the peel and eat shrimp. The burger was flavorless and the shrimp, while large, were warm. I expected chilled peel and eat... More

The food was okay, but the focus here seemed to be on tips. We were a group of 3 couples and were told that we could not have separate cheques and, because we were such a "large" group, we would automatically be charged an 18 percent gratuity. When we protested that we really would appreciate to be billed per couple,... More

Funky atmosphere, quaint decor, on the water where pelicans fish and squabble...we enjoyed the environment more than the food. Slow service even though the tables were half empty. I like fresh fish, my "trigger fish" tasted like frozen filet from the grocery store, grilled vegetables were okay but not special. Companion's crab cake needed more crab, less filler. Barbecued meats... More

Can't beat the view and draft beer for $1.50 from 3-6PM each day. Friendly serving staff and cool atmosphere. Perfect seaside hangout.

Ordered the BBQ babybacks. They were great, seasoned and cooked perfectly. They were also lesn but juicy and fell off the bone. I let my companions, who ordered the BBQ spare ribs, taste mine and they both said they wished they had ordered what I got. Also, the waiter was very helpful with his description of the menu items.

If you love BBQ, dockside dining and a Florida Keys feel, this place has it all. Tucked in between Rt1 and the Gulf (locals refer to it as Bayside) is this shanty style find. Roofing is made of tin, lined with license plates, no rhyme or reason lighting, shades of pastel and bright color paint cover the walls and trim,... More
