“Good Place to Stop on the Seawall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This place is on the seawall, not too far from the Pleasure Pier. Plenty of fried seafood, burgers, and tacos. Pitches of beer are reasonable for a group. Very casual and fun. I had the fish n' chips. Others in our group had blackened fish tacos. Everyone was happy with their food. Wasn't too crowded the day we were there, but I can imagine it might be packed during peak season. Inside and outside eating and drinking and fine for families.

This place is fun! We had a party for 85 people here the night before we cruised and the staff was friendly, the locals great, and the food delicious!

“Get the Shrimp Po'boy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food here is "Spot" on. The buns were fresh like they were made that day. The Po'boy was loaded with shrimp (probably a dozen) for $6.95, Waffle fries were great too. The sandwiches come naked but there is a fixins bar so you can add what you want.
