Food and service before 6 pm is very good. Gator tail was the best I ever had. Fish was fresh. Busy, tourist resturant and parking can be a challenge. Would return for good seafood. Good vibe and service.

This is a fun restaurant for families or big groups. Large areas of seating. Mainly seafood so if you don't like it, this isn't the place for you. Good food, but menu is typical for a seafood restaurant.
