Great Grouper Sandwich!

My wife and I both got the grouper sandwich blackened and it was delicious. The restaurant is outdated but don't let that deter you from eating here.

Wow!! What a busy little spot, get there early to avoid the wait. Best Grouper sandwiches on the island. Make it your way, grouper so big most of it hangs off the edges of the bread. YUMMY.

Nice whole in the wall. Great grouper sandwich and fish spread is best around by far comes with fresh tomatoes and pickles. We split huge sandwich and get it countryfried. People that ordered onion rings liked them service is typical beach service just laid back

$19.00 for 3 scallops, 4 shrimp and 2 lbs of french fries !! Stay away !! Maybe the grouper is good , but not priced on menu. Could be $50 or ? The best part of my dinner was the little paper bucket of Cole slaw !
