The rest of the menu is priced right as well. Place is small , no reservations, limited inside eating, people waiting for your stool, outside tables , limited as well.... More

Whether is is oysters, wings or the best blackened fish for miles is why this unassuming little old wooden restaurant is No 3 in Dania. A visit to Florida would be nothing without dining here for lunch or dinner.

Local hangout type of place, inside sit at counter and watch food fried as you order. Outside seating at several picnic tables in parking lot. Nothing special, good or bad.Table next to us ordered Wings, they looked good.Parking is free, but limited.

Everything we had was really good. Seafood was fresh and delicious. Unbeatable value. Very tiny inside, but fun and local crowd. Good service. We would return for sure.

My wife and I stopped in based on local recommendations when we were in Dania Beach a couple of weeks ago. We tried lots of different things, but the standouts for us were the fresh shucked oysters to order and the steamed shrimp in oldbay. Being from north of the border, I do not know if we even have oldbay... More

Amazing place with returning locals and folks that have been going there for 40+ years. Blackened mahi-mahi dinner with was great..but clam strips were disappointing.
