Very good seafood, awesome killer bowl shrimp with rice, great fish tacos. Freash fish of day good. We were prepared to wait and pay cash. Small place, filled up and stayed that way til close at 8. If you arrive too late may have to get order to go instead of eating there. Went back twice in our stay

Back to MB, I can't believe I've never written a review, so here it is: Best place ever for fresh seafood! We make it a must visit each time we come back to our condo. For 1rst timers, be advised, it's a very small place and you might have to wait. remember Sinefeld and the soup nazi? Yep, you might... More

Average food and far below average service and friendliness. We had hoped our first two disappointing visits (several weeks apart) were a fluke so we returned a third time a few months later based on our friends request along with reviews and recommendations. Three times you're out!!! Better food and much better service can be found in Beautiful Mexico Beach.

We were looking forward to eating here this evening. However, despite arriving at the restaurant a full hour before closing, the hostess out front refused to put our party of 2 on the waiting list. She offered the excuse that she wasn't sure they would reach us despite plenty of time remaining to seat and serve every person there. We... More

I ordered soft shell crabs for dinner and it was a perfect meal, prices were reasonable. They have running a restaurant and serving delicious fresh seafood down to a science! No complaints at all.

We had a group of eleven, and they were very accommodating. My husband had the fish tacos and loved them. However he was still hungry. I had the combo of grilled shrimp, fried shrimp and the catch of the day"flounder". The grilled shrimp was awesome and the fried shrimp was good, but the flounder wasn't seasoned at all. We also...

This small restaurant is packed all of the time with good reason. The seafood is excellent. They have the best hushpuppies, slightly sweet and spicy at the same time. Save room for the key lime pie!
