Mmmmmm Good

Real Cheapeake Bay type crab shack. Good flavoring, great staff, and nice selection at reasonable prices. The decor is very appropriate with both indoor and outdoor seating under big oak trees with Spanish moss. Crabs were a little small for being "large size". Lunch menu prices under $10 ( I... read more

If you enjoy Blue Crabs, Spiced Shrimp and other fresh seafood, This Is The Place! Cooked perfectly and generous portions, it was great. We had tried another seafood place nearby and were very disappointed, "Laishley Rest." One visit here and we were impressed. Its not a fancy place - its an old cracker house but very quaint. Outdoor seating is... More

Not clear what happened here, we went in for crabs or seafood and the waitress told us none was available at the time? The service was terrible for us, and the table next to us. I think the server was just terrible, so would go back and try again just based on their reputation.

Local high school kids as the "Wait Staff" My grouper sandwich consisted of a hamburger bun and a piece of fish. NOTHING on the bun but a crappy piece of fish!..I am certain it was not grouper. The blackend fish was... More

Went to early supper Thursday. It is VERY rustic. Covered porches on three sides, doors wide open. I am glad the temperature had calmed outdoors. ANYWAY...they brought fish pate and saltines in their wrappers. Husband finally started on it, urged me and WOW was it great. hen we ordered Fish Chowder and Shrimp Creole. The soup was easily the best... More

Altho not stated on the menu all seafood can be fried. 2 fried shrimp, blackened mahi mahi, and fried grouper were excellent. 2 lobster dishes (fried and... More

Raised in Venice, FL and enjoying seafood all my life, I was disappointed int this place. It is small, it has picnic tables for service, and if you don't get there early they run out of sea food. It is a snow birds place, thinking they are getting real southern seafood. It isn't so, at least to this Florida Boy.... More

Both meals--Steamed shrimp with crabcake and Grilled Grouper--were good-sized portions and very flavorful. Thank you for a great Florida experience.

Nothing fancy, but, they have some great deals. All you can eat Blue Crab, 100 clams etc. My wife loves the Key Lime pie and She Crab soup.We drive 25 miles to eat here and, to us, it's well worth it.
