“Not a fancy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

What a find!!!! It isn't easy to find but worth looking for it.

You order your food & drink at the window, sit down & they find you. The prices are EXTREMELY REASONABLE!!!!! Draft Miller Lights were $1.25. A cup of clam chowder was $2.50. 11/4 lbs of steamed shrimp $10.60. The beers were cold & the chowder & steamed shrimp were WONDERFUL!!!!!

There is an outside & inside eating area. They only accept cash. There is an ATM if needed.

We would definitely go back when we are in this area again. Thank You!!!!!

“No frills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

If you are looking for excellent seafood, this is it! If you want frills, go elsewhere. Here, the food is ordered at the bar and everything is delivered in to go containers. Local microwbrew $3/glass. Table full of food for under $100 with the tip. Left too full to move. YUM!

“A Great Seafood Dive - in the best sense.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Out of the way and worth the effort. Had the steamed shrimp and it was great. All 3 lbs of it. Great tap beer. Finished it off with a soft pretzel. Couldn't have been better.

“Kick Back and Enjoy the Steamed Shrimp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Friends had recommended this eatery to us. We did find the listing on TripAdvisor but the directions link from TripAdvisor didn't get us there. We entered the street address into our GPS which did get us there. We had the smoked mullet spread which was fantastic. Best we have ever had. The steamed shrimp was excellent too. The ham and cheese wrap was generous but could have used some type of sauce or brown mustard. Tiki bar atmosphere, reasonable prices and great food made for an enjoyable meal.
