Being newly relocated to the area, I ended up pulling into this establishment at 5:59pm. They were closing up, but greeted and welcomed me with a great big hello and smile even though they were almost ready to go home. This service is NOT the norm here in Florida, so the friendliness was very much appreciated. I bought my fish... More

This place is awesome! Fresh local seafood caught that morning! And if you have a specific request like oysters or crab just call them in the morning or night before. It will be part of their catch! I like to buy mine and cook at home but you can also buy any of their iced seafood and have it blackened... More

The seafood served here is same day catch fresh. During this visit for lunch, we had fresh crab cake sandwiches made from crab caught the night before and a sample serving of smoked Florida Shrimp.

The help was very sweet and helpful, and went out of their way to provide great service. The grouper and shrimp... More
