Had never been here before so stopped in. The staff including the owner were amazing. Food was fresh and incredible and our server Peggy was epic. Our drinks never went empty and we never wanted for anything. We will def be back.

After kayaking the Crystal River, this place was so yummy. I'm not much of a fan of fried seafood, but the batter was thin and so tasty. It didn't overtake the taste of the fresh seafood. My husband and I shared the Admiral's Dinner in...More

Easily the best clam strips I’ve ever had. Hand breaded and cooked to perfection. So many places have the same old packaged strips, but this is the real deal!

This restaurant is basically behind a working dock and seafood market. The Seafood was very good, but the building and atmosphere were pretty spartan. Plastic cups and the like.
