Best grouper sandwich on the beach for sure! It's a thick cut of fish, unlike some others that we had, which were much thinner. Wanted to go back to try the scallops, but we'll have to wait until next time for that!

Go for the seafood, local Grouper sandwich is best. One order of fries is plenty for 3 or 4 people to share. Their tomato's somehow are always great, don't know how they do it or where they get them.

If you're looking for a good grouper sandwich this is a good place. This place isn't on the beach but it has outdoor seating and air-conditioned indoor seating. It is popular spot for the locals. The food is good and priced right but the beer I think is overpriced.

Love the atmosphere either dine in or Al'Fresco. The Grouper is superb whether; blackened, Cajun, grilled or fried. I usually get the Grouper fingers fried as I like the taste and not so much bread or food with a dinner or sandwich. Cole slaw is great, onion rings even better. I only order those if we have a group of... More

From the food, to the service, to the price, to the portion sizes, this was an all-around great experience. The environment is super casual so it is perfect after spending the day at the beach. Calamari and Onion Ring appetizers were perfect for a family of 5. We will definitely be back!

My wife and daughter ordered burgers and fries. Burgers were cooked to their expectation and they said they were very good. I ordered the grilled grouper sandwich and it was VERY good, albeit a little pricey for a fish sandwich at almost $19. Overall, a good dining experience, with good service, and a reasonable value.

Just fabulous, best grouper sandwich ever and huge was an extra bonus. And the onion rings were great as well. We sat at the bar and our bartender was very friendly.
