Seafood

The food is great for seafood lovers. However, there were no chicken fingers on the kids menu. Loved the shrimp and calamari.

Every year when we visit St. Joe, we go here at least once! My husband craves the Killer Shrimp and I love the fish tacos. The kids enjoy the shrimp baskets or hamburgers. They are open for dinner from 5-8. Usually, there is line waiting to get in. It is consistently good every time we visit.

Fish tacos are a must. If you love shrimp they will prepare a shrimp taco for you too! Shrimp and scallop basket is amazing. Bring cash and wear your flip flops and beach bummin' clothes.

No, there isn't a lot of seating but while waiting they offer beverages and take your order. By the time you are seated, your food is on the way. The food was so fresh and so good and we were so pleased with the pricing. This is a must eat while in MB!

Great food and reasonably priced. It's cash only so come prepared. We loved all the personalized dollar bills on the walls and had fun seeing who could find the oldest one. It's very hot inside the restaurant so dress last light! We ordered 2 kids meals, grouper and grilled shrimp, and tuna tacos. All were fantastic. Wait staff was very... More

This is a review by a 13 year old- My family and I were very upset with this restaurant. We heard that they had really good seafood, so we were pretty excited to go eat there! We walk in and a guy was cleaning off a table to seat us. 20 seconds later a waitress comes and tells us that... More

Hello Windley. Thank you for taking the time to post. I usually don't make a habit of responding to the reviews unless I think that the person has gotten it a bit out of perspective. I happened to be standing there when this happened and know that the server came over and spoke to the other server who was new,... More

Killer bowl is extremely good with just a hint of spicy flavors. The grilled shrimp or fish tacos (fish of the day) are also good. Cash only & be early if you want to eat inside. You can pay at ordering or let them know you want dessert & they will hold tab open. Prices reasonable. Staff always friendly &... More

small place with only 40 seats, so get there early, but it was worth the wait. Alot of fried food, but the scallops were really tasty and the grilled shrimp were delicious. The staff was very pleasant too. Very casual place with odd hours, so check those out before you go.

We stopped here after visiting the beach. It was crowded but we were seated quickly. The service was amazing and very friendly. It's a very chill and cool place. The hot sauce was fantastic and we bought a bottle. We colored a dollar and put it on the wall. I suggest doing that. Our dollar is to the right on... More
