Remembered going here a couple years back and thought to try it again. A simple non poo-poo kind of place that seems to boast a strong local folks trade. Ample parking. Quiet place with Very Good service. Lots of different seafood options. We tried 3 food choices and all worked out good for us.

And had a burger, which was no deal, dry meat, way too much bun, iceberg lettuce, tomato that wasn't ripe and pepper jack rather than American cheese. But I craved a burger after eating maybe a 55-gallon drum full of fried seafood over the past 10... More

Ate at the High Tide with eight reunion friends but was on a tight schedule. Was pleasantly surprised with the quick service. The food was quite good. The staff was friendly and efficient. Don't let the high prices on the menu deter you. Our portion of red snapper was large enough for my wife and I to share. Everyone at... More

friend took us to one of his favorite eating establishments, and we now understand why he likes it. Great gumbo, grouper sandwich was one of best fish sandwiches I've ever had, the crab claws were tasty. the decor was galley like and staff was super friendly. Don't forget the double fried french fries..

Everything was great- from the drinks to the food! Highly recommend fried crab claws appetizer! We got fried seafood platters - everything was cooked to perfection. Ask for Carol - she's fun, knowledgeable about the menu, fast & very friendly. We had a fabulous evening and will definitely return!!

Had drinks and dinner by far one of the best places for stuffed crabs, for smokers outside dinning and drinks are perfect one of my favorite since hubby enjoys cigs with his cocktails.
