Quick customer lunch

I've been here many times, mostly on the weekends. This visit was with a customer that's right around the corner. Seating is all outside under roof or at the bar. The peel and eat shrimp are always a favorite. This trip had conch fritters (delicious) and grouper sandwich which was good, but there... read more

Very enjoyable seafood and sandwiches served in an outdoor area on the water by a marina. Watch the boats go by, see the occasional dolphin, and have a beer or two while you're at it. The smoked tuna dip is great!

Had a chicken quesadilla for appetizer which was good, though it wasn't properly grilled so the tortilla wasn't crunchy. Then had the $5 fish taco special which was delicious. Would rate 3.5 stars if I had the option.

I've visited several times and even brought my family. It's such a unique venue and I just love it. Food is fine; Service is fine; Atmosphere is fine - on the water. Go and try it out. It's fun.

If you like frozen seafood, canned vegtables, and steak cooked through a pizza oven at premium seafood house prices look no further. This is the kind of place where they want you to get loaded before you order the food because it's substandard and they know it. It's a decent enough bar. Until the drunk and belligerent owner gives the... More

The pet-friendly place is right in the water and accessible by cars, boats and paddle boards. No frills, but good food, good drinks and great people.

There were about 6 tables of customers in the restaurant and this wait was not explained by the waitress at all. Also, they have a coupon on their website that they only accept if it's printed out which really left a bad taste. By the time the food came and the after the coupon fiasco, it wasn't a great experience.
