“What a great dive with great food and people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Mounds of broiled or fried seafood at reasonable prices, friendly wait staff and bartenders. Lots of relaxed happy people everywhere. Casual, casual, casual. Did I mention the seafood is great?

“Could be great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Have been here multiple times as we live close by and there are few choices. Way over priced for sitting on out door furniture with disposable plates and cutlery. Staff was always good and the place does get crowded but the food fall short. Alligator tail was was cold and greasy as were most of other fish dishes I had tried. Go for the atmosphere, not so much for the food

“Good place to stop for a change.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We eat here a least once a year. I always get the platter for 2 just for me. However it will feed 2-3 (regular people). Got it fried this time my favorite is the boiled though. But both are good. Staff are friendly and efficient. Décor is an old shack that has been added on to. Not pretty or fancy but different. Restaurant is off of the beaten path but is worth it for us.

“Get ready”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We were a little surprised at the interior when we drove in. It's a little out of the ordinary. This is a place were you can find the unexpected and be pleasantly surprised. It's a "don't judge a book by its cover" type of place. It's worth a visit.

“OK...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I don't really care for this place but it's my husband's favorite place to eat in St. Augustine. He got the fried seafood platter this year, but preferred the boiled platter he got at our last visit.
