Way too smokey

The fish tacos were good. What my kids had was ok. This place is ok, but way too smokey. I will come back when there is NO smoking inside.

We walked over for a few drinks and they were very very friendly and nice, not over priced. The service was prompt and courteous.

Laid back atmosphere with good cold shrimp!! I am always going to order fried pickles if they are on the menu but these were definitely not my favorite I've had but they are decent. Wait staff was nice and friendly! Good prices!

Our favorite place to go after a day of fishing or boating. Kids love the big burgers and we love the fish tacos and cold beer. Caution when going at night, bands play and smoking is allowed.

Place wasn't crowded, but we waited a long time for service. Everything we read said this is where the locals go, I ordered a club sandwhich- the bacon was almost raw. I also got some kind of blisters in my mouth after eating here-someone did not wash their hands!

This is a bar and grill , I think the menu fits well with that atmosphere. My parents usually have the chicken fried steak which is prepared very nicely. I have the seafood tacos with blackbeans on the side which is very delicious. Our waitress Diane, was so great. We never went without anything and never had to wait. She's... More

In looking for a place to eat we stopped here. It's 2 floors; the upper section is a bar; a large, outdoor porch (covered) with 2 TVs that looks directly onto the bay. There is a long flight of stairs to get to the top. When we entered the front door downstairs, the cigarette smell was so rank, we almost... More

We visited twice while in town. The hot wings are good the GUMBO WAS THE WORST I'VE ever had. The ranch is homemade and delicious, the Patty Melt with the Mustard blend was delicious. Ice cold beer and a great place to watch the games. I would go back again but I would avoid that gumbo like the plague!!!

We went there for dinner and ordered soup and u peel shrimp. Waitress came back and said no soup left. Did not have menu with her so we went with the shrimp. Man at next table was smoking a cigar the entire time and the smoke was overwhelming. The shrimp was so salty I couldn't eat it. When she brought... More

I really love the fried pickles here and there Steak & Cheese sandwich is very good. Love the seasoned fries and they are the only ones in town that know exactly how I like my Margarita fixed (Straight Up - not frozen and no ice, just chilled). I can't seem to get it anywhere else in town like that and... More
