We had great food, great service and great entertainment at affordable prices. In a touristy area , that is hard to find.

Called for lunch based on trip adviser recommendations and weren't disappointed. The sirloiner burger was well cooked and tasty, the grouper original was very tasted as was the cheese and steak burger, couple of beers, wines and cokes at 43 dollars. Not only excellent food, but the waitress was really cheerful and helpful. Don't miss this one

We went with the Chef Specials--Grapes and Grouper, and a seafood special with octopus. Absolutely delicious!

She-crab soup. That's it! Nothing else needed - it's spectacular! Well, I guess I need to add something else, since 100 characters are needed. The she-crab soup is amazing.

I've been going to the original cafe for some time now. The food is ALWAYS fresh and the people are great! The Monday burgers with $1 Bud/Bud lights is a must. Bring the family or go for a few with friends. Small and quaint old Florida style.

This is a very comfortable, friendly place. The bartender was wonderful, the food was good and the crowd was fun. A good choice right off the beach.
