Unassuming fish market atmosphere with a good simple menu and daily specials. Great fresh iced tea. Cuban sandwich could serve two. Calamari was world class. Parking can be tight. Stone crab chowder was just ok as was the fried green tomatoes. Big German beer was also very good.

This place is a little small inside to eat, but if you are hungry for good seafood, this is the place to go. they also have a section where you can buy fresh seafood to dessert.

Homemade sausage! Really in the Keys! Also fresh seafood fixed right. Homemade breads just really a great surprise. It is not a place you would stop in from the outside. Just very basic inside but the food is great!

My wife & I had a great dinner here last evening. 1/2 of the place is a fish market and the other 1/2 a nice little restaurant with fresh daily seafood. My wife had their clam strips & I had their green tomatoes on mahi mahi. Add ice tea with their homemade desserts & you are good to go!

I had the lunch menu Grouper Fingers which came with coleslaw and one side which I chose potato salad. It was AWSOME! The fingers were fried golden brown and very fresh. The potato salad was very good too. I washed it down with Polander beer on tap. Could not be better!
