Each seat (well almost each seat), offers a great view of the waterfront. Watch the boats go out and come on a beautiful day. Sit on the porch and sip a chilled drink of your choice. Good food, comfortable setting.

Great restaurant on the water in historic Ferandina Beach. The menu is large with seafood choices and southern style grits. Busy place so reservations are helpful. Indoor and outdoor seating are offered. Great indoor dining on a hit day!
