This restaurant has great reviews and is very busy but I'm confused on trying to figure out why! I've heard so much about this place and finally tried it. I heard it was small and that is very true! They have this make shift bar and serve 2 beers on tap, Bud and Bud lite, white and red wine! They... More

Had a late reservation without a problem. I saw a exceptional designed restaurant with well qualified staff. My party had lobster, steamy mussels. Delightful. Great wine. Also when some guests were "alive and kicking" the staff handled the problem very well. Had a laugh about it and continued with desert. Sticky toffee and another top desert. I liked it and... More

The food was delicious but they need to consider an expansion. There's only 2 tables that seat 4 people and 2 others that sit 2 people and a small bar. The four of us had to wait for an hour and then decided to just cram into the 2 top table and our kids sat in our laps.

Delicious! No frills but the food was great. We enjoyed two juicy, well cooked fish sandwiches, slightly overcooked but flavourful conch fritters and a top notch key lime pie - all at bargain prices. Look forward to eating here next time we're in town.

Hey! If you have not been to this place or heard of it I am not surprised. I have never heard of this place before being taken by a friend. I just came back from the Keys a week earlier so I thought this place would just be okay. The food is outstanding!! I had blackened Dolphin with conch bites... More

We found this place in trip advisor and gave it a try. It is a small place tucked back in a neighborhood. Very small and seats about 25. Conch fritters were awesome and so was the fried platter. Expect to wait and eat off of cheesy wooded dishes.... Enjoy !!!! We will go back.

After searching for the best places to eat I found a high review for this restaurant. My husband and I went out of our way to find this "shack" to order a take out fish dinner. On Wednesday we ordered a cod fish sandwich (tasteless and soggy) and a side order of conch fritters (burnt to a crisp and rubbery... More

This is a very small restaurant tucked behind Federal Highway, US 1. The fish is always fresh, prepared to your liking and reasonably priced. Love the Mahi Mahi and Grouper grilled or blackened. Beer and Wine are very reasonable, house-type variety. It's a local eatery, but because of such positive newspaper reviews, you may want to select an off-time to... More
