Consistently really good

Large portions and really yummy food. The fish tacos are excellent. The pico is spot on and red beans and rice are fabulous. Service is always good and fast. One of our go to spots.

Fresh French bread and lightly breaded and seasoned gulf shrimp make a delicious po-boy!! Their red beans and rice are also delicious. They have lots on the menus to choose.

Dive place with interesting décor. Don't expect table service or fancy silverware but the food is so good and quite cheap! The catfish is great and the fried oysters are fantastic. If you like seafood, it is definitely worth the visit!

My husband, kids, and I ate here for dinner and felt it was a bit pricey and found the food just simply average. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great. The atmosphere was fun- the mounted fake fish on the walls that people donated/decorated were cool.

We ate here for dinner. The staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is great. The food was good. We got the grilled fish, which was a little dry for our taste; next time we'd get it fried. We also got grilled veggies and red beans and rice. I loved the fish plaques on the wall.

We enjoyed the good fish and sides. I also got a shrimp cocktail, but it was just okay. They have an extensive menu too. If you are expecting something fancy, it's not, but if you want good fish in a quirky place, this os the place to go.

$19.64 for 2 dinners and an ice tea. The catfish is wonderful! The hush-puppies are very good. There are many options on the menu. I have been here many times, and it is always good.

Took the family to eat before a Grizzlies game. We are from Memphis but had never tried it. Awesome dinner, reasonably priced, definitely will visit again!
