Took forever to get sub-par food. I had the gumbo and it was terrible. Only meet in it was three shrimp the rest was celery and onions. And even then had zero flavor. I love food and did not eat but a few spoonfuls. Only perk was looking at the water while we ate. Maybe okay for a drink, but... More

The atmospher is beautiful and perfect for spending the day on the beach and grabbing a burger. The service was horrible. It took about 20 min for someone to even get our drink order and we waited over an hour for our food and the order wasn't even right then had to wait about 30min for our ticket.

Dear Dicksona48, I appreciate your valuable feedback. We consider customer service to be just as important as the quality of food that we serve here. It is extremely unfortunate that your visit to us was on an evening, when we were short staffed. We have taken measures to prevent such a situation to occur again. Please come back and visit... More

BEST crab legs I ever ate!!! FRESH, BIG shrimp! It seems more like an ice house, but still family friendly! Looks a little run down, but it's near the water so...parking lot is very bumpy and in need of repair. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Will definitely eat here again when back in Port A next summer.

Parking lot extremely bumpy and floods after a rainstorm. Easier to find from the beach near dunes marker number 9. Doesnt serve hard alcohol but quite afew beers. I had... More

We would have never eaten here if not for three things. 1. It was just a block from the house we rented. 2. It was on the beach. 3. It was open late. That said, we enjoyed eating here and they were accomadating. Yes they are short staffed, but they handle it very well. We ate here two nights in... More

We love this casual place. Try to grab a spot on the deck. I had the special, tuna tacos, wonderful and inexpensive. The shrimp poorboy was stuffed with amazing fried oysters. So yummy! The boiled shrimp is heads on, which means totally fresh. The prices are great, service happy, food fresh and view wonderful!! Enjoy!!!

the seafood combo in a huge bowl had totally fresh everything in it. (wish I realized that 1 order was enough to serve 4 though, we did have to waste some of it, huge portion!!)

Best crab cakes I've ever had! Very fresh! Not a fancy place by any means but relaxing and laid back and great food! Wine and beer bar only!
