AWESOME SEAFOOD !!!!

Its just a whole in the wall with small tables and chairs BUT some of the BEST seafood I have ever had. VERY hard to find, its well hidden down an alley-like road. Here is a tip for finding it from US-1... Its BEHIND the BP gas station that's plain to see from US-1. Well worth the find. The fried... read more

I've lived in So. Fla for over 40 years, and it's frustrating that you can't find a good quality, reasonably priced restaurant for fresh Florida seafood. After a co-worker recommended it one afternoon, telling me she had the best fried clams, I was definitely curious. I made a date with some friends, and my partner and I headed to a... More

A driver for the Everglades Tour told us about the place. We decided to give it a try. As stated, it is small with only 4 tables and about eight stools. The fish are fresh and the service is very good for such a busy place. The fried shrimp, cracked conch, fritters and fried oysters were great. We ended up... More

This place is tucked back off the beaten path. It doesn't look like much from the outside, and only seats about 24. Be prepared to wait for one of the best down to earth fresh seafood meals you will ever have. Everything is reasonably priced as well. I love the fried platter with the biggest scallops I have ever seen,... More

Tucked away off Federal Highway in Pompano Beach. Small and full of locals so you know it has to be good. They stand in line to eat here.

We read the reviews and decided to brave the small place. It was 3pm on Saturday and we just got a place at the bar. All in all the food was good not great but good. The service was okay. It seemed one of the ladies was having an off day. Tip - Go during off hours or get it... More

I had the cracked conch, the grilled fisherman's platter and KEY LIME PIE! The space is small - only a few tables but well worth the 10 minute or so wait. Cracked Conch: lightly battered in seasoned flower - came with a dipping sauce that was tasty. Platter: like a 3oz piece of fish, 3 (big) scollops and 5 shrimp.... More

Tim and I make sure we come here every visit. Fish arrives fresh everyday and cooked to perfection . It doesn't get better than that. Elisa opens the door with a wave and a smile saying come on in. From there you are family. This is why we visit pompano beach. No better seafood around

We come down to Florida about six times a year. Always in search of the best and freshest seafood Florida has to offer. Simply put this is the best, enough said. Don't miss it. Tim Hoholik.
