Relaxing and having a great meal on the river

We enjoyed the great location of this place. Right on the river with lots of fans to keep you cool and good food. Prices we reasonable. This place is laid back

This is what i call a fish fry shack with indoor and outdoor seating. They have an inside and outside bar. Right on the river, drive up in your boat. Basic seafood is the best here. Basically picnic table painted colorful. Only disappointment is that they do not really have local fresh fish. I you order a fish basket, they... More

This is my 3rd review; I live here. The grilled or blackened fish sandwich is dependable...flavor is always great, nice portion of fish on a sandwich. My friend loves the peel and eat local shrimp. The she crab stew is also rich and tasty. It was very busy the Tuesday night we were here and we grabbed one of two... More

Greeted and seated promptly. Server { Jenny } came by quickly and took our drink & appetizer order. When app was served our entrée order was taken and drinks refilled, App & entrees were cooked properly and tasted great. Jenny's service was outstanding. Would recommend you give it a try when in the area. Ask for Jenny to serve you.... More

The fish sandwich was alright, well seasoned and cooked well. The crab stew was good. The decor tries hard to be shabby and the presence of a portopotty as the obvious bathroom is weird (they do have a regular bathroom, but we had to ask where it was). Staff was a bit snooty and the bugs were unbelievable. Its not... More

Sorry you didn’t have a good time or get to see the entire restaurant. When sitting outside we do everything we can to control the gnats (bugs) and usually have sufficient fans to help control them. We have a total of 4 air conditioned restrooms. Since you sat outside in the Tiki Hut I know you were unable to see... More

We've been here twice and loved it each time. There were six of us and each of us loved our meal. The grilled fish is excellent, the grilled shrimp is great, and the hush puppies are dynamite, It's cool place with a great atmosphere, great staff, great food and great drinks. There's also and outdoor tiki bar section that is... More

Fun casual atmosphere. Outdoor Tiki covered patio is fun for nice weather. Food is good but not extraordinary. Service was attentive on this rainy Saturday luncheon shift. Butch Broome went out of his way to email me back a confirmed reservation (which they normally don't take) since we'd be coming from out of state.

This is one of the few places we've found locally that serves fresh seafood with the option to have it grilled or blackened. So nice to have something other than fried seafood. The view was beautiful and the restaurant had a nice causal atmosphere. Great for families with small kids, the bright decor and busy marina outside kept them occupied.... More
