Down home, delicious food, delightfully brusque waitresses. The Grouper and the Onion Rings are as advertised. Sit down and eat!

Don't be fooled by the outside, this place has some great seafood! I got scallops and they were the biggest I've ever seen and really, really good! Get them with lemon pepper! It's a small place, and even though there is outdoor seating, it gets busy so get there early or be okay with waiting.

Had a great time there--they we'er swamped--sat outside and had a great time. Barbara was our server--friendly and explained the specials.. All was good in all ways. The fish spread was fresh and tasty. Served with nice garnish! We all had the HOGFISH sandwich. Fresh and tasty.. Will be back for sure

We went there yesterday because of the good reviews on their fish tacos. They raised their grouper tacos $2.00 and they were very small. For $11.95 all you got was 2 tacos nothing else. The onion rings were great. I will go to the 4th St Fish Market in St Pete where they have fabulous fish tacos. This place knows... More

My son and I had a grouper sandwhich and onion rings. It was delicious and huge! Make sure you are hungry when you go. The grouper melted in your mouth. Really friendly and quick service.

Found this place based on reviews found by a quick search and we're not disappointed as the grouper sandwich was simply astounding and my husband stated that the onion rings were the best that he ever had; they certainly were the largest I have ever seen, too! And speaking of large, the tomato slice on the sandwich was bigger than... More
