The fried seafood platter had no flavor, the fish was dry and the staff was not very attentive. The house special was ok but really the only saving grace was the crab legs. Everything else in it was bland as well. Definitely not worth the $100 tab. I think we would have been better served to have went to Joe's... More

Basded on high rating, 4.5 stars we dicided to eat here. Ended up dropping $80 on food for my wife and I (no drinks). The taste and texture of the food was like it had been setting under a warming light for several hours. The tail-on shrimp on my plate were not shucked properly. The fish fillet was like rubber....

While staying on 30-a we decided we would venture out a bit and try something different. My wife was hungry for fried seafood so I looked at several places on TA and we ended up here. Everything was good (not great, not excellent) and we had no complaints. Wife's fried seafood was good; my mahi with a spicy cajun cream... More

We went hungry-the best spice-and the food was average. But the crab and corn bisque was fabulous! The crab cake was mainly filler. The pasta a bit skimpy on the sauce and we asked for more (Alfredo). At least the soft drinks were refilled frequently. They do have alligators out front of the restaurant which the kids really liked.

After overpaying for fancier surroundings and mediocre food on our beach vacation and previous trips to Rosemary Beach, this place was a breath of fresh air. The wait staff was efficient and friendly, and the food was delicious. It had the feel of a local seafood spot, although the environs next to the Winn Dixie with the alligator pond were... More

The alaskan king crabs were super clean and oh so yummy. For a 1 1/4 lb of crab, you got about 5 legs. Our server was super quick and friendly, will be back!!

We had about a half hour wait, but that was to be expected on a Saturday night in late July. There must've been about 6-8 alligators in and around a fenced-in pool on the front lawn. The staff were holding a small alligator that you could touch and take pictures with. The food was excellent. I had a tuna steak... More

GET THERE EARLY!!! We arrived about 5:15 and got the last table before the waiting list. As with all restaurants in PCB there are no call ahead reservations and your entire party must be present to give your name at the door. The food and service was unbelievable. You might think it is pricey ($$-$$$) but it is worth every... More
