My family's least favorite restaurant we visited in a week's stay. Had not been here before and will not return with so many better similar places in area. Crab cakes were mushy and not special at all. Hard place to locate. Needs better sign on building. Nort really enjoyed at all. Sorry!

Atmosphere was good. Service great. Value of food - poor. Gator tail was $15 and was just a handful portion. Fish tacos were bland. Crab legs ok. Sides were all good. FYI: If you are seated outside & it rains, they will not accommodate you or give a refund. They might come by and refill your drinks . Anyway, there... More

We stopped in to the gift shop and to have a couple drinks. The drinks were SO good and we sat outside. The service was good and the drinks were very reasonably priced.

Took our family of six for breakfast and had some of the best food of our vacation. The Farmers Omelet and Biscuits and Gravy were great!
