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

It's pretty ordinary as far as seafood goes. Most everything is offered fried. The Three best things I've had on my countless visits are the things that keep me coming back. 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.

Everyone kept telling us that this was such a great place to eat so we went there for our anniversary. The service was mediocre at best with staff just standing around and the food left alot to be desired. Not impressed.

We were a large group with a bunch of little ones. The waitresses was pleasant, handled our group with a smile and made our evening fun. Food was excellent and lived up to reviews and word of mouth! We will be back!

We are Seafood lovers and will eat it 3 times a week if we can. The setting is nice and quiet enough if you sit outside on the front porch which we did. Our server (Kaitlen) was prompt and very knowledgeable about the menu which was extremely helpful in our decision to order the Alligator Cheesecake (an appetizer not a... More

This is a good place local in Sumter to grab a casual bite to eat with friends or coworkers. Has an extensive beer list. Its a place that seems to have put the beer list first and then created some tasty, but not classy, dishes to go along with the drinks. The seafood tastes fresh and they know how to... More
