Food and fun in a relaxed atmosphere

Stopped in for dinner after a Sunday round of golf. An oceanside bar-like atmosphere, the seafood menu was pretty extensive and they tout their "Dirty Balls" - encrusted crab meat with a sauce. I opted for the salmon instead and it was delicious. Staff was very friendly and helpful with menu... read more

The reason to go here is THE FOOD. The atmosphere is fun; however, nothing really special and the service was excellent. The food is fresh and perfectly prepared using awesome recipes. I am cutting calories so I had the Grilled Catfish Dinner. It was served with French fries and cole slaw, both excellent. The coleslaw had a unique flavor and... More

Had a great waitress Mikela. She helped us with the menu. She suggested the dirty balls! They were delicious!!! We got the crazy Cajun platter. My husband and I should have split one. It was delicious too! The catfish was probably the best I have ever ate and I am a catfish snob!

Great decoration and atmosphere reminding you in New Orleans. Staff is super friendly and lots of good selections on the menu. Went with gator appetizer and crawfish etouffee. Gator bites have a good crunch on the crust and meaty flavor (kind of like a bit tougher chicken). It went well with the accompanied sauce. Highlight is the crawfish etouffee as... More

Had fish tacos which were fantastic! Calamari Greek salad very good. Neither of us could finish our food. We were impressed by flavor of food and quality of service. Good selection of beer on tap. Would go back again rather than wait an hour for babes

Had blackened salmon salad. So big I didn't think I could eat it all but I did because it was so good. Better half had a fish special off the board and he loved it. Great service & cozy atmosphere. Will definitely return. Not your fancy 5 star seafood restaurant, if that's what you're seeking, but not 5 star prices... More

I have eaten here twice in the last month. Shrimp and crawfish ceviche was excellent for appetizer. Boudan balls not so much, too much rice and not enough sausage. Fish and chips cooked just right. Service both times was friendly and excellent.

Will was our waiter and he provided excellent service and was very knowledgable as us being first time guests. We tried the chicken fried catfish with jake peon gravy along with the well known dirty balls. Great food and service

I am a vegetarian so I haven't experienced much of the menu, but I stop here every time I am in town. I love their fried pickles and wedge salad (hold the bacon!). The service is great and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Their new location is fantastic.
