I had the flounder po-boy today and found it to be delightful. I had the lettuce and tomato on the side as a salad and the chips extra crispy. The service was prompt and courteous and the prices were reasonable.

I was at this cool restaurant yesterday and I was blown away by the 6 page, single-spaced, 3 column beer list! I ordered the blackened tilapia Reuben and though a little greasy, it was very savory. When I asked our waitress about a beer choice, she got the manager (?) to the table. He was so knowledgeable and friendly; he... More

Took the wife to dinner. First time here. Wife had the lobster mango tacos which were really good. I had the rainbow trout which was fantastic. It was a special that our server recommended. The place is nice and the staff was friendly. I am told the bar selection is excellent, but we did not partake on this visit. Not... More

I've been here a few times with mixed results. This most recent outing was with another couple for dinner. We were promptly seated and read the specials. I ordered a Cajun Burger and my wife ordered mango lobster tacos. My burger was tasty but the tacos would have been better grilled instead of fried. The joint looks as good as... More

For food the alligator cheese cake (add extra corn fritters) and the fish tacos with the blue cheese coleslaw are amazing. For drinks -- the bar is AMAZING! tons... More

Great beer selection. Peel and eat shrimp (with extra spice) is my go-to, but the shrimp po-boy is good too. Love the crab chips. Great area for larger parties and has an outdoor area too. Service has always been good.
