Wow! What a find! We were looking for a lunch place after visiting the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. One of us had the shrimp tacos and the other had the shrimp po' boy. Both were scrumptious! !! The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked...either fried or grilled. The service was friendly and efficient. Restaurant decorated with speedway memorabilia.

Live music was really good. Tried the pasta seafood dish. Excellent! Friendly atmosphere. Nice place to go, especially in the warm weather as you can sit out on the deck and look at the ocean.

I would not have known the difference; however, I was in the company of racing fans. The nondescript single story building is at the North Turn for Nascar races on the beach in the early days. The memorabilia begins outside and continues throughout. We sat in the tented area which on a warm day would have given us full access... More

Once again the contributors of TripAdvisor didn't let us down. This restaurant was clean and the food was fantastic. May I suggest the blackened Mahi Mahi tacos and the crab stuffed mushrooms. Both were recommended by our server, Gasper and we're not a disappointment.

We drove forever down a tiny 2 lane road almost to the inlet to find this place. It was worth the drive, we enjoyed the food , the friendly staff, the great ocean view, and especially the mani blackened tacos!

Stopped in for dinner and found that all the meals were pretty high priced. My wife and I each had a seafood entre that were over $20 each. The fish dinner I had was bland and lacked any seasoning. Dinner for two ended up being $70. Won't be back
