One of our favorite restaurants on the gulf. Great food, great service, and Johns Pass has a lot of other shops and stores to visit. The food portions were plentiful and prices were reasonable. Very nice restaurant to take your family.

Excellent daily fresh fish specials. We had the grouper, salmon and shrimps. "Friendly" fast service. Nice simple menu with other options apart from fish. But given the name we went for what " it does on the tin" fresh well prepared fish. All four of us really enjoyed.

We were early for dinner and there were a lot of staff. Our server was nice but absent after taking our order. It was just a sad experience. Asked for a dark beer on draught and served the worst golden. Food served on chipped plastic plates and was really pretty horrible. I know it's touristy and "waterfront" but the staff... More

This restaurant is more of a tourist trap. It's on the water, it offers an array of seafood which is "ok" at best. Their drink menu is a great opportunity for an up sell with souvenir take home glasses. This place is extremely expensive when you look at what you get. My husband ordered the Grouper sandwich. 2 small, but... More

We went fishing with Hubbard s Marina next door to cook the fish we had previously caught. While the fish was cooking, we sampled some of their frozen cocktails from their list which were exactly what we were looking for after 4 hours on a boat. Food was nice as well and price was ok.

Being local we usually stay away from the tourist places along the water. But with the $10 off coupon in the newspaper this past weekend we figured why not. My wife had their shrimp boat which was ok. But I tried their fried clam strips as I haven't had clam strips in years. They weren't good. The batter was too... More

Raw hamburger. I mean raw. Asked for crisp bacon. Not crisp. One of the worst burgers I ever had. The corn fritters were good and the onion rings were good but how hard is it to make a burger. Won't be back ever.

I had the special which was grouper topped with shrimp scampi. There was so much scampi sauce that it made the fish soggy and greasy. The baked potatoes and the corn fritters were not cooked through. The only redeeming factor was the nice water view. Will not return there

Oysters, grouper, scallops, and shrimp were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The coleslaw has pineapple in it, but had a strong vinegar taste. The employees were very friendly and it seemed they all really liked their jobs. We will be back!
