This is the real deal- fresh, never frozen shrimp. The clam chowder is great. Just what I want when close to the coast.

On our way to see the manatees at Crystal River and needed somewhere with quick service. Dan got our food out quickly and everything was tasty. The clam chowder and gator nuggets especially good. Our waitress was Mel and she was awesome!
