Swamp soup is tasty. More tourists than locals. Kinda sorta like restaurants you’d fine in towns not on the coast- everything fried with @Home-type furnishings/atmosphere

Swamp soup and hush puppies are so good! Our server, Oam, was great - supper friendly and helpful. Whitefish was very good, big shrimp on the po boy. Very nice on the inside.

Went in for lunch. Mmm. Mmm good. Swamp Soup. I had the gator basket. My wife had the shrimp basket and my father in law had the Reuben sandwich. All were great. Our server, Sasha, was fun. Will be going back.

We looked at the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to try it. My wife and I were both very impressed! Our waitress was great with recommendations and we loved the food. We will be back for more whenever we are in town.

The food was amazing! The soup - oh my! We also tried the rockets and they were spectacular. Also had the shrimp po boy - delicious. Casual, affordable, and nothing pretentious. Beach casual. Pam was an awesome waitress. Overall, I highly recommend.

Went here because of the recommendation. Honestly don’t know if we were at #2 or #3. Pretty fast service but a bit slow for seating. Nothing fancy. Very casual. Food was served in baskets. We each got a very small styrofoam cup of swamp soup....More
