You get to go through Greek part of town en-route which was nice to see. The food was good. Try sitting outside for dining.

We stumbled upon this place on a visit to the Sponge Docks (a must see). The vibe here seems quite high energy and a little noisy/touristy, but worth going to. They do have outdoor and indoor dining. We stayed inside as it is summer; plenty of folks were dining al fresco though. The restaurant was fairly busy on a Saturday... More

Stopped to have a few cold beers and sat outside at the bar. Bar staff was very nice. We decided to order some food. Had fresh grouper and shrimp. It was good...shrimp small. Just enough amount of food to hold you over to dinner. There was a nice breeze outside so it was very relaxing. We left and walked the... More

Their out door seating smells like rotten fish. Their food presentations and preparation was terrible. This place has potential if they hired a new cook who knows how to cook fresh seafood.

Went because of good reviews on TA and wasn't disappointed. Had a couple of craft beers at the bar and ate outside to live music. Fish (as I had hoped) was superb. Shrimp the best I have ever had. Go, you will love it !

First time at the restaurant! In town for a few days found it through trip advisor! Let me say our waitress was great and attentive to our needs. We had a party of 7 and were seated right away. The food tasted great, portions were smaller then I expected for the price. But I understand times are tough especially for... More

Restaurant bar is the first thing that greets you. The dining room as well as the outdoor seating face a canal which makes some interesting yet junked up viewing. the décor is kind of haphazard with nautical items hung here and there. We ordered fried clams, fried grouper and a burger/ The seafood was mediocre for a place that advertises... More

We reside less than 11 miles from this establishment and we enjoy each and every meal that we treat ourselves to here! They have their own HUGE boats which bring in wonderful seafood for their restaurant and their adjacent seafood store!!! We'll stay loyal to them most certainly!!!
