Stopped in for a drink during the afternoon game. Took awhile to get service at a table, they were busy, so drinks and listening to the entertainment while watching the game. Phoned a friend who joined us for a round or two. All in all an OK place very local, typical Florida bar on a small piece of water. Crowded.... More

they have different games outside(corn hole, ring toss,jenga blocks & others) for kids and adults. Was there on a Saturday evening live music outside by the Tiki bar. Food was great, service could have been better BUT it was very busy that evening. Hush puppies were excellent; will return for sure.

Lets be clear, this isnt the best food in Oldsmar. But its very good food, with an excellent/personable staff in a great location. I used to visit FL in the 70s/80s and this is the local kind of place you wanted. Waterfront, but not great water. Tiki bar, but old. If you like local places, i think this is a... More

We went to jack Willie's for a Saturday night dinner. We ordered fried clams for an appetizer, fried oyster dinner and s black and blue burger. The food came out quick-- and delicious. Oysters were succulent, the burger was juicy. Wonderful dinner.

Made a return visit September, 2016. I have been here many, many times and was always mostly pleased. Not this time. The normally good fish was over-cooked and the service was horrible. We had to ask for thing multiple times before we got them, the check was wrong and it took way too long for the food to come out.... More

Somewhat amazed at the bad reviews on here. The food isn't gourmet. But it's tasty. I love the grouper sandwiches. Mostly I like the atmosphere here though. Good local place. Laid back. Great bands four out of five times.

My brother had raved about the grilled grouper, so we were really anticipating this dinner. But he and I were both disappointed with the grouper - a little overcooked and fishier tasting than I thought it should be. I also tried their Watermelon Margarita, and that was too sweet and not refreshing. On the other hand, my mother had the... More

My family and I usually stop in at this place on our way to Clearwater. They have the best fried grouper sandwich I've ever tasted. The service is usually very quick and courteous. My dad gets the fried clams that aren't bad either. Stop in sometime and see for yourself!

Noisy dirty inside and even noisier outside. Good is all fried and bland. Good place to avoid. Once in a while they get a good band for the outside bar. But it's flea market decor all the way.

I was told this local spot has been in Oldsmar for sometime. Though hot outside I made the best of the situation with a glass of sangria which was good but the grouper finger appetizer was very tasty.
