We caught a bunch of Yellowtail and this restaurant made it blackened for us. It was absolutely perfect. They know how to cook fish. Prices were reasonable with tap beer.

Delicious. We tried it based on the reviews and they didn’t disappoint. We had the fish fingers, fish tacos and Key Lime Pie. We personally liked the fingers a little better but that’s personal preference. Try it!

Busy dining room; mostly local folks implies (accurately) good food. We had conch stew and stone crab chowder, both rich and well-seasoned and fish tacos topped with bruschetta. The waitress had a lot of customers.
