The best fish in the Tampa bay area in my opinion. Great prices, you get great portions and sit outside with the rest of the people there enjoying the Florida Outdoors. Reminds me a lot of

If you like seafood, cheap, this is the place. Only open Thursday thru Saturday, it's a real,treat to sit out in the open on picnic tables and enjoy shrimp, clam strips, scallops and more, with great sweet tea to have with it. You can also take it home, call in an order, if you so desire. Definitely worthy of the... More

This was a surprise!! Food was very good and plentiful for the money. We could not believe the crowd this place draws. If you judge this place by looks you won't stop, but check the make of the cars & vehicles in the parking lot, before you drive by.

Had the fried shrimp. It was light and fluffy. The okra was very fresh and tasted home grown and dipping sauce was good. My hubby doesn't even like okra, but couldn't stop eating it. We also had the cheesy grits. It was Ok, but I would have rather had a 2nd helping of okra!!

We were craving seafood, and even though everything was fried, we had some of the best and freshest tasting seafood: oysters, clams, shrimp and fish - all DELICIOUS! Would eat there again in a heartbeat.

Good thing we arrived early. Fried shrimp and oysters were good and so were the side orders. Friendly atmosphere. I would go again.

After reading many reviews about this restaurant we decided to try it even though the place certainly does not look very appealing from the road. Service was very slow but it was surprisingly busy when we went. We were very disappointed that absolutely everything is deep fried yet advertised as "fresh" (highly doubtful). The food was nothing special and really... More
