Huge local shrimp which can be steamed on site for you; yummy blue crab and corn cakes to take home to cook; great local fish to cook at home; interesting seasonings and sauces and locally prepared treats.

Very good, fresh and expensive seafood. Also on offer are a variety of prepared foods - fish spread, soups, salads. As well as crackers, some vegetables etc. A very good place with a well deserved reputation.

The fresh catch is very expensive in comparison to Publix farm raised prices. Example island seafood cobia 22 per pound Publix 8 dollars a pound. But knowing they draped it in that day may make it worth it

Who does not want fresh sea food at the beach? Well you will find great shrimp and other items depending on what they got fresh that morning. Also great sides and fresh vegetables in small amounts. I would advise going in early or call and see what they have. Friendly too!

We bought fresh shrimp and had them steam it for us - it was way undercooked and raw in the middle. We ended up cooking it more ourselves which wasn't easy without a steamer.

The owner sells fresh seafood. If you are looking for something different to cook, ask for the grouper cheeks. They will have to order them, but the cheek meat is the best. I would recommend just about anything in the store including the seafood, dips, and deserts!

This is my second trip to the island and perhaps more third or fourth time in this particular store. The quality is never the issue...but the prices can be. I spent $52 on salmon, a 1/2 lb. of rock shrimp and some smoked fish dip. That might not sound like a lot to some people, but I might have purchased... More

Extremely nice lady who is very knowledgeable about her products and who also cares where they come from! The shrimp was amazing! She steamed and seasoned with key lime and Caribbean jerk for us! Can't wait to try the crab cakes!
