Good Family Seafood Lunch on the Marina

She crab soup was delicious and full of crab. The hamburger and grouper fingers were good. The gumbo and shrimp and grits were excellent! Minus: The room we sat in off to the side was dark and musty. If it had not been so hot, the outside on the marina seating would've been great! Also, 8... read more

It is a cute restaurant over looking the Harbor. On a nice day you can sit outside. their fish was delicious and fresh.The service was good and courteous. They have a sheltered veranda with a nice view. Everything is cooked fresh, and this makes a difference.

Sat outside on the deck overlooking the waterway while eating our fried fish sandwiches. Well, it was supposed to be a fried fish sandwich, but it was fried fish fingers on a cold bun. The slaw was good. The beer was cold. The view was nice. Adequate... but a little ho hum.

This restaurant is very laid back with a rustic decor. I had the fried grouper which was quite tasty. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. We sat in the fishing hut outside and it began pouring--with no protection to return to the inside. This could have made the waiters cranky but they were still smiling taking it in stride. The...
