We were starving and passed by this restaurant, Which looks basic but the food was very good! I recommend to start with the sautées calamars and seafood pasta!

We had a wonderful Gouper dinner on the patio. My daughter swears this is the best place for brunch, but my bet is on dinner!

I had the lobster salad and tuna tartare after a long day of travel. They were so simple and delicious! The waitstaff are solicitous without being intrusive, and the people watching along Duval is fabulous. I loved this place!

We arrived only a half hour before closing but the service was not hurried. We enjoyed an appetizer of crab cakes, a glass of wine, and a fantastic dinner on the patio. Service was first class. This restaurant was referred by a local. Awesome experience!
