Probably our best meal on the trip

Everyone said it was good. Everyone was right. When we got there I thought, "this strip mall restuarant is top rated?" Well shame on me for that. Food was great. People were nice. They even gave us extra tootsie rolls. But lets go back to the food. It was great. Crab meat and avocado... read more

We liked this place so much that we are there twice in a week. The Mermaid quesadillas were wonderful, as was the crab cake sandwich. The kids loved their chicken fingers. The fish taco was also a hit, but I would have preferred a better sauce than spicy mayo. The decor and service make this place. It is always crowded,... More

This is a great lunch place. We go every time we visit the island. Fish Tacos are the specialty and they are terrific. The presentation alone makes them great. Very reasonable prices.

Stopped in here when we got into town before going to our hotel. We got a couple wraps and they were delicious. We had our dog with us and were able to eat at picnic tables they have set up outside,

the fish tacos were delicious, although they were much more expensive than I anticipated. the staff at the counter was not particularly cheerful or friendly, which was surprising based on the signs they put on their door.

Thank you so much for your 5-Star review! We are always grateful for that. Glad you thought our famous Fish Tacos were "legit" -- sorry you thought they were expensive.
