Po Boy my favorite

A good place to enjoy a view of the Gulf. Seating inside or outside. Menu is varied and the shrimp and fish po'boy is a real treat. Stuffed full of shrimp with waffle fries. I recommend this as a must try. Burgers and a good choice of drinks.

This is our second time to eat here and both times have been great! They serve something for everyone salads, poor boys , hamburgers, and of course seafood! Portions are plenty! We shared the fishermans platter it had fried catfish, coconut shrimp, fried shrimp, crab stuffed jalapeños, shrimp kisses(bacon wrapped shrimp deep fried with cheese inside) and waffle fries!

A family member, along with the front desk clerk of our hotel recommended this restaurant. I assume we went during the busiest time, because the crowd was outrageous. There are lots of areas to this place, which included a bar, and an area for kids to play video games and watch tv. After getting my food, I was a little... More

I loved the location although tough to find parking. Very busy but they seem to have it well organized. You give your order in line and they call you when ready. The food was great and we were able to get a table on the patio which faces the beach. We had a party of 15 and the food came... More

Fantastic! I was impressed with the flavor of the food here. I got a Ralph burger and it was amazing! Great place to hang out and relax while you eat and gaze at the beach.

We really enjoyed our lunch here. Arrived around 3:00 on a Sunday and the place wasn't too packed. Found parking and waited in a pretty short line to order. We changed tables from our original choice because we were back in a corner and it was hard to get in and out -- which is important at this restaurant for... More

Fried Shrimp Po-boy was delicious. At the bar the waiters are awesome and very friendly. Nice place to sit back on the Seawall and enjoy drink.

A friend told us this was a good place to eat by the water so we gave it a try. We went fairly early on a Saturday-4:30pm. This is a 4 in one place, so follow the signs to find the restaurant. If not, you will end up in a bar. You order at a counter, which was confusing because... More

The food was great but the portions were a bit too much. We had a great time and will return in the future. There is no wait staff as you place your order up front and your buzzer alerts you when your food is ready.

Salad was HUGE! Husband liked his fish and chips and my daughters chicken was great. The only issue some may find is the seating. You order in line and then go find a seat inside or out the pick your food up when your buzzer goes off. There's a little condiment bar to add to burgers or whatever you need... More
