The food was really good and very large portions. The owners ere there and involved in the business which is nice to see. The place is busy so you my have to wait but the food is worth it.

The decor, atmosphere & service is great. I really enjoyed the Mahi Rueben & was filled up when finished. It was great to see 3 tv's with ESPN sports & also outside seating on a patio. The prices seamed reasonable for the portion sizes. We would definitely return.

Our new favorite place for lunch. Great atmosphere, wonderful service from our waitress Shannon, and lots of smiles from the hostess Brianna who even held the door for us when we left.

We are here based on the reviews on tripadvisor. We ordered a seafood sampler for an appetizer then I had the key lime fish sandwich and key lime pie for dessert. Everything was excellent. One reviewer stated that it was a run down hole in the wall but I don't think that at all. It was very clean inside and... More

We had the buffalo wings and coconut shrimp appetizers. Both were super fresh and cooked to PERFECTION. I had the Cobb salad with shrimp and lobster and... More

The food and service here were pretty good. The food didn't blow my mind, but it was a decent dinner. We had conch fritters, fish dip and blackened mahi, scallop and shrimp. The conch was massively underwhelming - the conch was almost entirely missing from the fritter - disappointing. The blackened fish and seafood was good - tasty and well... More

My boyfriend and I came over here after snorkeling at John Pennekamp..food was good, especially the french fries and the onion rings (they were huge and to die for)! All of the staff was friendly and the service was quick, we came in around 2:00 pm so we missed the lunch rush. I would definitely come back!

Seems like a popular spot with the locals, but we found it to be average. They do have an extensive menu, and apparently a popular happy hour, which we missed by 5 minutes. We had two sandwiches, no drinks, for $35, and it wasn't wow-worthy.

This was our first time in this area. We were looking for somewhere to eat and there were lots of cars at this place. A quick look on TripAdvisor mobile app indicated it was good so we tried it. Very very good food. We sat outside as the place was almost full. Service was good - friendly, relaxed, comfortable. The... More

Delicious! We had to call in an order because we were heading out of town, but the food was as hot and delish as if we'd eaten in. Ready in just 15 minutes, too. Highly recommend!!
