Yum,yum...

Great place to go and enjoy great food in a very relaxing atmosphere. Small eating area, might have to wait awhile, but outside eating is available. Hard to believe this small mini-mall is hiding this comfortable, easygoing restaurant

Although we've been living in the area for 2 years we just found this gem of a restaurant thanks to the internet. We went on a Saturday night...not in season...and were seated right away because there was no line. The first thing my husband said was, "ugh, only beer and wine" so he couldn't have his favorite martini but he... More

We went for our favorite meal a Saturday ago and had a wonderful time. We try to sit at the bar now no special reason just trying to mix things up I guess. And I was surprised to see how many staff members they have at such a small restaurant, all working hard. It's still my 1st choice for seafood... More

The piece of grouper on her sandwich was equal to mine on my sandwich but mine was a few dollars more (I'll pass on vegs). The grouper was... More

Started with clam chowder - let me tell you, i have had many clam chowders,,,,and this is in the top 3 I would have to say. My wife had the fish n chips, grouper, and it was delicious too. I ordered the lobster lasagna....WOW. It was fantastic! I HIGHLY recommend this place!

We have eaten there before and really enjoyed the food. Our last visit 2 nights ago was a much different experience. Grouper was undercooked and my redfish was overcooked. Even the key lime creme brulee was runny. Best part of entire meal was fried pickle appetizer.

Went with friends who live in Venice. Enjoyed this cozy but very small and busy restaurant located in a strip mall outside the downtown core. The service was good and the food fresh and well prepared. We had a platter of oysters to begin. Other dishes were: Don't Peel Shrimp, tender and cooked just right in a delicious broth, lobster...

Boiled shrimp appetizer is so delicious. Large shrimp are cooked to perfection and make an perfect start. Blackened fish and sea scallops are highly recommended. Daily specials are offered and the staff are friendly.
