Bland fish, dry buns, but great wait staff and great for casual eats (crab legs). Watch out for No-seeums in the summer. They will eat you alive! Oh yeah, did I mention the Rum Runners??

While on vacation went to restaurant for dinner. Food was good, we both had Mahi mahi sandwich. The fish was good, bun could be better. Had fish sanwiches in several Florida restaurants & the restaurants could all do with investigating for a better bun that will stand up & not be soggy. I also had clam chowder & it was... More

Seafood menu was excellent with many great choices. The staff was helpful and amusing. They are a well oiled machine. Cold beer with reasonable prices. I'll be back.

We came here at 6 pm and the wait was quoted to be one hour. We waited over an hour and ordered fried shrimp, fried oysters, and boondocks shrimp and scallops. The oysters were small and oysters and shrimp were over-breaded. Very pricey for the quantity and quality of food. Won't return.

We stopped here for dinner while visiting Daytona Beach. I'm glad we read some reviews so wrk we to show up a little early for dinner. We only had a short wait for a table, but after we sat down the waiting area really filled up & we overheard the wait was up to an hour. The food was wonderful;... More

Full parking lot when we arrived. Good sign of good food, bad sign for waiting. We were told it would be 45-60 minutes and we decided to wait. The bar (not a 'full' bar) was busy so 15 minutes later we had our beverages. We stepped out onto the river side area which is narrow without seating. Any available seats... More

My favorite place ate at while vacationing in Florida. Went here with friends who lived locally. Open air eating next to the docks. Had about a 20 minute wait before getting a table for dinner. Highly recommend the spicy peel and eat shrimp we had as an appetizer. Was some of the best seafood I've had. My entree was Shrimp... More

We absolutely love it here. It looks like nothing from the outside but the atmosphere, food, service and crowd on the inside, never disappoints. We try to go at sunset because it is on the river and it is absolutely stunning when the sunsets. Although we have ordered tons of things off the menu, our current favorite is the spicy... More

Must say we almost left as the wait was longer than we were told. But we stayed. The food was good but not spectacular. The highlight was the king crab legs. I really liked the spicy pick n peel shrimp however they were not easy to peel. The shrimp and scallop dish was very mild tasting but I spiced it... More
