Enjoyed the small, local business feel of this fish market and restaurant. Love that is isn’t mass marketed or uppity. It’s quaint, with a small sea village feel. I had a salmon oriental salad which was fabulous. My husband had the blackened red snapper that...More

I have always had a great meal. Homemade potato salad & fried shrimp is my favorite! Small, cafe style with limited seating! Small bar seating area and they are very friendly!

Excellent food hidden inside an older building and fish market. We ate here twice in 3 days because it was simple, clean, good food. The Key Lime pie was the best we’d had in the Keys.

There is nothing fancy about this local seafood market and restaurant, but the service and the food are top notch! I had the catch of the day and my husband had the surf and turf - large servings and delicious!

We came based on the good reviews on trip advisor. We ordered the German fish sandwich (very tasty ) and 2 orders of fried clams. Both orders of clams were measly for the price and over cooked. We also ordered conch fritters , which were...More
