2 orders of calamari, large servings on our lunch, excellent food and service! A+++ Would highly recommend this for a laid back meal on the river.

Love sitting on next to the river, watching the wildlife the food and drink are very good, not all of their food is fried and that is a very good thing.

I have had countless dozens of oysters agree and have never had a single oyster that wasn't plump juicy and full flavored. I don't get oysters anywhere else anymore in SWFL. The food is never over cooked and well prepared. Nothing fancy, but very good seafood at a very reasonable price.

Great food. The Naples Fish Dinner is over mashed potatoes w/ parmesan sauce served with hushpuppies. AMAZING!! The only thing none of us ever care for there is the cole slaw. Don't let that keep you from going.

I have never sent a meal back but I did send the mussels back...waaaaay to salty and unedible! The sauce was watery and had... More

Stopped with family for dinner. The parking lot was overflowing with cars but no waiting on being seated. Deep fried grouper, deep fried cod fingers and shrimp were all very good. The fried fish were not greasy, cooked to perfection. Prices were in line with other locations in area. Do not stop just because parking lot is full. Many places... More
