An upscale restaurant but down to earth food at reasonable prices. Oysters were great--I had never tried raw oysters til now. I had shrimp and grits and it was GREAT! Others had coconut shrimp, grouper and ahi tuna---all were very good. The ahi tuna had a very salty coating which my friend finally stripped away, so be warned. Service was... More

My wife and I had dinner here about a month ago. My wife had the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp and I had the Asian Salad. Both were quite good- nothing over the top but actually not bad. My wife said her shrimp tasted very good but the sauce was not as thick as it probably should have been. Quite runny... More

There's a very short list of the good things about this restaurant. It's on the water and the facility is beautiful - that's about it. Ironically, the non-seafood items on the menu are not bad but if you're going for seafood be aware that you're going to pay higher end prices for the same kind of seafood you would expect... More

We stopped in mainly because Feb is 25% off (grows business in the off season) Makes the meals here a very good value. My wife was craving comfort food and ordered the grilled chop steak. She said it was one of her best. I had the shrimp/scallop plate. very good as well. Order their green beans. Honestly just like my... More

Had lunch there on 2-2-15. Went with a group from the campground we are staying at. Perdido Cove RV Resort- www.perdidocove.com. Great service by the servers and the food was good...not great. Beautiful view from the dining room. Menu is based around "fish" based meals- shrimp, oysters, grouper etc. They have salads as well. Prices $ 9.00 - 14.00+ -.... More

Not the best. We were expecting better. My Mahi Mahi was way over done and dried out. There were only 5 other tables and service was slow, server seemed like she really didn't want to be there. They were giving out cards for 25% off next visits in Feb. We never received one. Probably won't return.

I stopped by for a quick lunch. The staff were very friendly. The atmosphere is great, and a pretty nice view. The raw Oysters I ordered were great. Fresh and salty. Clear and not milky, like they had just hauled them in. I had a blackened fish sandwich. It was great also. My server was very attentive and nice. Overall... More

This was a nice change from the typical beachfront restaurants. Located in marina with a great view of inner-coastal water. We went early evening on a week night and were seated immediately. Service was great. I had the Stuffed Flounder.....excellent....more than 1 person could eat. Another party had the seafood platter..other than the very tiny bay scallops this was good... More

Early dinner gave us a great view of the Inland Warerway. Had Oysters Rockefeller which were spicy and not overlooked. Fried shrimp dinners were excellent. Shrimp and grits were tast, but grits were too dry. Grouper special was well received.
