We had been in the area for 4 days and this was absolutely the best meal that we had. We dined downstairs in the small dining area. We had the place to ourselves. Everyone else was upstairs. The waiter was so friendly. The folks that were with me really liked their meals. Of course I did too. I had fried... More

This is a seafood restaurant over a seafood market. We went for an early dinner. It's mainly a bar that serves food. Most of the menu is fried. I had a lemon pepper fish filet that was good but not great. My husband said the same thing about his fried crab cake sandwich. They had a Shrimp Pasta dish on... More

I have been going here for many years and this was the first bad experience I have had. I ordered the seafood quesadilla and asked them to put some Old bay seasoning on it because they used to do use it but have stopped. Waiter said fine no problem. When my order came I took one bite and the salt... More

We love to eat diner here and have the fresh seafood- shrimp, clams, tuna, flounder, cobia are all excellent- prepared either fried, blackened or grilled. They are willing to customize your order and the service is good!

They cook the seafood right in front of you. I love the fried oysters and my wife enjoys the shrimp. The fish is really fresh too.

The food was awful. The shrimp tasted like it had come from the frozen food section at your local grocery store. The scallops were like mush and although they were suppose to have been deep fried they were soggy and cool in the middle. The downstairs smelled horrible and the upstairs where we ate was nasty. While the service was... More

Good attentive service. Good Florida atmosphere. Upstairs screened in deck is great for a dinner at the beach. Able and happy to meet my dietary restrictions.
