So good!

Ordered the fish tacos with catch of the day. Grouper was the fish and the tacos....awesome. The homemade fish sauce...hot, spicy and very good. Bring your cash though...no checks, credit cards or debit cards. Well worth the rip from Miramar Beach, Fl.

While it isn't much to look at the place was hopping when we got there. Server was excellent. Food was nothing to write home about considering it's on the Gulf of Mexico. The grouper was good, but a bit on the greasy side, the grilled shrimp were a huge disappointment. Not fresh, but farm raised overseas we were told. My... More

There's a reason this place is the best in Mexico Beach! The Original Killer Fish Tacos with fresh yellowfin tuna are something EVERYONE has to try! If tacos ain't your thing, then you could try their freshly caught fish of the day or just about anything else on the menu because it is all outstanding!

A group of us ate here and absolutely loved it. They got us in super quick, the service was amazing, and the food was delicious. Will definitely make this one of our regular food stops on our trips to Mexico Beach.

Love the Killer Seafood w/ French Bread, Fish Tacos, Shrimp Po' Boys, and Grilled Shrimp. We've never had a meal here that was less than wonderful! Fun to walk over and people watch while you wait on a table. These folks have a system that works - including placing your order before you're seated. Add this to your lists of... More

We went here this summer and had to wait a bit to get in, but they came out and took our drink orders while we waited and brought them to us outside. I got fish tacos and they were fabulous--i'd highly recommend. This is another great, affordable seafood restaurant on the forgotten coast. Will definitely be back!

This is the one place that you can't miss during your trip to Mexico Beach. Truly the freshest seafood in the area. My top pics are the tuna tacos and the soft shell crab po boy. Make sure you save room for the homemade deserts as well.

We dined at this restaurant once only because they cannot work with our severe cardiac dietary restrictions. Everything is fried or grilled with too much oil.

Grilled with too much oil? That doesn't even make sense. We grill chicken breasts, hamburgers, shrimp, and Yellowfin Tuna. On a grill. With no oil. Because it's on a GRILL! More
