Everything - the atmosphere, service, food and drinks - was superb. We came here for our honeymoon dinner and it did not disappoint! We tried the yellowfin tuna avocado eggrolls for an appetizer, I had Spaghetti Squash (with goat cheese grape tomatoes and basil vinaigrette) with seared Scallops, and my husband had the Grilled Ribeye with Onions and Peppers. Then... More

As locals we frequent this restaurant often. The quality of service, food, atmosphere only seems to improve. Try the yummy coconut shrimp with spicy mango sauce or the delicious fish stew. Just two of the many choices on a menu that will not disappoint. The waitstaff is outstanding with a warm welcoming attitude. Samantha, Casey, Sheila, Melissa, Tommy, just to... More

Food was fresh and interesting. The food looked and tasted great- lots of flavors and spices, I had the seafood stew and the tuna appetizer, really liked both. It was pretty crowded but service still good.

It turns out that the high school homecoming is this weekend which explains the sparkly dresses and good people watching. This is really pretty casual. There are lots of choices with local seafood plus other options. So many looked good. Everything we ordered was delicious and prepared with a bit of flair. The service was great - friendly and competent.... More

This place has great reviews on Yelp. I do not know who those people are but the food was pretty crappy. I had the special which was yellow snapper. It was mushy and had no flavor. The rice was okay. There was a side of broccoli which was greasy and loaded with garlic. My husband had the pulled pork with... More

The square grouper was absolutely awesome. Great price for the quality of the food. My wife and I got the yellowfin tuna avocado egg rolls for a starter and was blown away by how good it was. For my meal I got fish tacos and they were the best fish tacos I've ever had (they are pretty spicy so watch... More

Arrived early to beat the crowd. Wonderful breads and the seafood stew is excellent. Shrimp dishes and egg rolls reported excellent as well. Generous portions, great food and very pleasant and attentive service make this a 5.

Innovative fresh local seafood. House Smoked Fish Dip is phenomenal, a definite "must try"!! Our Conch Chowder and our Key Lime Pie are also something you should not miss. We also have a great Square Grouper Fish Sandwich, 16 oz Grilled Ribeye (Certified Angus Beef!), Salads and lots of small plates to share...Flash Fried Conch with ponzu and wasabi. We are open on Mondays from the last week in December thru April! We close every September from the Sunday AFTER Labor Day and reopen on the Thursday BEFORE Columbus Day Weekend.
