“Great local hideout...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

I read the reviews and asked around a bit and came up with this place for dinner...i am so glad I did! The service was fast and helpful, able to tell us about all the menu items. Portions were enormous, food quality high, and prices phenomenal. Its located on the bay, and the only downfall is you cant see anything out there at night. I highly recommend a visit here!

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Took all the visiting family there 2 days after Christmas. They were all craving seafood. My father in law said it was the best oyster poboy he had ever eaten. My brothers in law both got the seafood Diablo and loved it. Their portions could have fed 2 people each. My steak was good and the homemade onion rings YUMMO. Great place to take out of towners for some local flavor.

“Worth the detour if you're passing through Gulfport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

On roadtrips, we always try to eat where the "locals" eat when possible. On a trip from Florida to Texas, my wife found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and it was well worth leaving Interstate 10. I had the catfish over red beans and rice. Wife had crab cakes. Both were excellent! Will definitely stop here if I ever take this trip again!

“Great Local Seafood!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I'm from a central Florida coastal town and when visiting family in Gulfport this is our favorite seafood resturant we always visit. Seafood always fresh, views of the back bay comforting and the service is great. Casual atmosphere with a nice menu variety featuring local dishes.
