Busy when we went. Looked like a lot of locals know about it. We waited about 30 mins for our food for take out but it was amazing. Shrimp was great. Smoked salmon dip was a meal and a half.

Best shrimps in Florida! Good servings for good price. No reservations, first com first serve. But be aware: this place is always very crowded but a visit is definitely worth it!

Great steamed shrimp and crab legs. Not great if you don't eat seafood. They do have a roast beef wrap, but that and a turkey wrap is the only non fish choice.

It’s amazing! But, if it’s not enough get the clam chowder in a bread bowl! Yum! Great outdoor atmosphere on the river. Been here twice and the Christmas decor stays up year round and you can arrive by boat. What could be better?

We were lucky enough to get a seat inside with a server. However, those who eat outside had to wait in a line, a long line. This is a holiday weekend, so it was crazier than usual. Chicken Wings were featured..garlic butter- fair. But the...More

Was brought here by a friend who wanted to show me the joy of having the freshest sea food that one could have. Get there early, they sell out quick.

Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.
