the food is fantastic! there is nothing like sitting at the bar outside & having a black bean burger or a basket of fresh fried shrimp & a cold beer or a coke.

We had great sandwiches after a long day walking on the beach. Great service and we had a wonderful time. From the North, we LOVED sitting outside in the warm sun.

I ordered swordfish tacos and found that the fish was rotten. It was so bad I gagged and spit it out. When I told the waitress she returned from talking to the cook and said the fish was indeed fresh. There was no apology. In fact, she acted like I was a liar. I never write reviews, but I was...

This spot offers nice sit down service, either inside or out on the pier at their Tiki Bar. Food was well-prepared and seafood cooked Calabash style. No better spot to enjoy view and/or sunset. Lots of appetizer selections for those not requiring full meal.

I had the catch of the day which one of the choices was swordfish. I got that blackened with the pineapple salsa. Cook perfectly! The flavor was amazing. We had great service as well. My husband had the fresh cobia. He got it grilled, also cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back!

we go as often as possible for the delicious soft shell crab sandwiches. It's casual, on a pier over the beach, and reasonably priced. Can't beat that.

We have eaten here in the past, several years ago and it was great (food and location)! But now the menu is limited, not a great selection! Overpriced for what you received! Ordered a $12 shrimp meal and got 9 pieces of "popcorn shrimp" sized prices and a few fries. More like a child's portion!! Hush puppies were at an... More

There is a very small menu. We had a hard time finding anything we liked. Our server was very busy. He came to us to get our drinks and food order brought them out and then took awhile to get our check. We don't plan on going back because there isn't a big selection of food at all. They do...

Not just a fish restaurant, the food and staff was great. Went there for two evenings and had different food each night. The portions were very generous.
