Husband ordered grilled redfish and a fried soft-shell crab and loved it. I ordered fried oysters, shrimp and substituted scallops for the fish for a slight up-charge.It... More

For Mahi, the fish was very strong. The food was nothing exceptional, not seasoned and pretty tasteless. The crab claws were very good and wish I had stopped there. Our waitress was excellent and very knowledgeable of the food. Doubt very much that we would go back...

A shack of a restaurant but don't let that detour you. Seating is on the docks surrounding trailer. Everyone was pleasant and welcoming. The food is as authentic as you can get and fried yumminess.
