“Simply great seafood.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Great seafood, good prices, well prepared and great people running the restaurant make this a winner.The food is fresh, flavorful and simply prepared, with excellent value. Try the spicy shrimp cocktail for an amazing and different take on a traditional appetizer.

“Great food, laid back atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Don't let the exterior fool you. There is a special treat waiting for you inside and it's really good seafood. We enjoyed sitting outside and our great lunch. If you like homemade awesome food this is the place for you. I had fish tacos that I enjoyed and I tried my sons chicken tenders and they were both some of the best I've ever tasted.

“Great no frills, fresh fish - reminiscent of coastal spots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Looking for some fresh fish, this great little local place was recommended and was close to downtown Plano. Reminded us of small fish restaurants we visited on the East coast. Great, fresh, and tasty seafood, and fish tacos. Good beer selection. The kind of place that seems familiar and yet unexpected. Prices were inspirational! Convenient parking. Counter service. Ultra casual but worth a visit for fresh fish.

“Hidden Seafood Discovery in Plano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

You should not pass up a meal at this converted Long John Silvers near downtown Plano on 15th Street. Giant shrimp cocktail ($7.95), almost a light lunch itself, was fresh and flavorful and garnished with beautifully ripe avacado and two jumbo shrimp. My wife's fried fish special ($6.95) of two cod filets and steak fries was fresh, crispy, and well executed. My coconut shrimp ($9.95) were large, properly cooked and included a nice sweet 'n sour sauce along with the tarter sauce. The cole slaw, included with my coconut shrimp was fresh and crispy but nothing to write home about. And what a bargain! All this place needs to be a destination restaurant is an ocean view.
