Yes, Killer Seafood!

First of all, you should know this is a dive. It's loud, crowded and very basic. Some of the staff had a bit of an attitude. They aren't going to serve you more drinks, because they need you to leave and make room for that long line of customers behind you. But if you can put up with that, go... read more

Very beachy feel at this place. Food was good. I had some spicy sauce with shrimp in a bowl. Thought it was very good. Teenage daughters thought Matt( I believe that was his name) was very hot. He was very accomodating. Helped us put our decorated dollar bills on the Wall.

We had 9 people, that's right NINE people to eat dinner at a place that seats roughly 40. Got there at 5:30 and everyone decided what they wanted and gave order to super friendly employee. Told that it would be ready by the time we were seated. We were seated in about 30 minutes and food was on the table... More

The grilled shrimp were AMAZING!! The fish tacos were the best I've ever had. I have heard that the key lime pie is an award winner but I was so stuffed from my dinner that I couldn't eat single bite of anything else. Maybe next time!

We were in the area because we were staying at a beach house for a week. First of all, this place does not accept credit cards - cash only. There is a convenience store close by if you need to get cash. Super casual place, the service was great, the food was awesome. Only knock on this place, almost everything... More

This place is chaotic! But we loved it! Killer Seafood Bowl combo shrimp and scallops was awesome. Grilled and fried shrimp was the best in MB. Be prepared to wait BUT it is well worth the wait!

Fish tacos are the claim to fame, and while they were decent, they were not fantastic. The crab cakes were homemade but fried to the consistency of a hocky puck. Friday night dining was slammed, we got ours to go. This is a CASH ONLY establishment, something you are not told when ordering over the phone. Service was friendly.

We vacationed for a week in Mexico Beach and ate here at least four times. The food, plus the people who own this place is great and take pride.

Killer seafood! 2 adults went about 6:30 on Saturday and there was a crowd outside. Since we were in no hurry and there are so few options we joined the crowd. At dinner they take your order outside with beer and wine available while you wait. We waited maybe 15 minutes and were seated. Once seated your order is turned... More
