My family stopped at this place on our way back home from St. George Island. We literally drove out of the way to come here. We had heard the seafood was amazing and it was true. Don't let the outside or inside decor fool you. The food is worth it. The best seafood we had on our entire vacation. I... More

First time my mother and grandkids and I have eaten at this restaurant. We loved it. It's very laid back, and rustic feeling. It's like the flavor of an old slow paced town. Nothing fancy but apparently enjoyed by a lot of the town. A lot of people seemed to know each other and everyone was friendly. Will visit again.

This is my favorite restaurant on the gulf coast for seafood. The Posey's are one of the oldest families on this part of the coast. John,who does a lot of the cooking also doubles as the fisherman and he also supplies seafood businesses up by our home in Tallahassee Florida. This restaurant is the genuine article for fresh caught seafood-... More

We were in the area last week and stopped for lunch . Once again...the best fried shrimp and oysters around. The batter is light and fried to perfection. If you haven't tried this place, you are missing out.

This is a place that many local go to. We found the restaurant to be dirty - the bottles on the table were sticky and messy. We found the food to be OK and expensive. The service was OK, but she spent more time chatting up front then taking care of us. We would not go back when passing through... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and were one of three occupied tables. The server promptly took and delivered our drink orders (but forgot to come back and refill our cups). When ordering our meals, the server named several items they were out of. After ordering, she came back and told us they were out of oysters so our... More

We caught some red snapper had them filleted and brought them to this restaurant and they prepared it for us. The blackened snapper was just unbelievable. I'm not the one that really likes blackened fish, however this was done so well it was just absolutely delicious. A must try!!!

My GF and I took her and my kids for lunch. It was great. I was able to get a veggie plate, which is a feat in this area, and all others got seafood. The fish fingers are actual filets of fish and the oysters have been fabulous every time we go. Strongly recommend.

Stopped for a Dozen and was underwhelmed at their size and flavor. The wait staff extolled their saltiness and I could no taste the fact. The crackers, Fixins and hot sauce were all top notch and service fast. Ten bucks was steep for a tiny meal.
