Food was excellent. Location was right across from the Casa 325 hotel we were staying at. The staff were very attentive, and service was quick.

Fries are crisp and hot but it's not so good after that. We had a fish sandwich that was 1/4" thick fish and 1/4" thick breading served in a big bun. Not gourmet food in any sense. I had a Cuban sandwich that was dry with not much flavor. Had to eat a bite of sandwich followed by a drink... More

Nice place right on Duval. You can get a seat right on the rail and eat while you watch the interesting people walk by. The service was good but I was not impressed with the pie. Their version was just a little too bland for my taste.

A reasonable variety menu with fair prices for the area. Consider other favorable reviews and you will not be disappointed. Impressed to see the manager interacting with customers occasionally and clearing a vacated table as he passed. I would return without question.

Great spot. Nice staff. I had the Jambalaya and my wife had the Southwest Salad. Jambalaya was probably the best I've had!

Nice stop good food friendly servers. A busy location with several menu choices, outside patio is a great people watching location. The portions are large so consider before you order. Fish sandwich is one of the best ever.
