I had fish and chips and my wife had the grouper sandwich. She got a sandwich and a child's size bag of Lay's potato chips.....Really. My fish was ok. The hush puppies and the slaw were terrible. STAY away

The party was my husband, my mom and myself. We were seated immediately. The decor is kinda cute--the whole dollar bills that are tacked up and old car tags. Nothing fancy. The chairs could use some rehab. We just had sodas and water, so that was fine. I had the shrimp in garlic butter sauce with collards and a salad.... More

Odd, as this is a rather abnormal response. Not sure what caused this lackluster response but would hop you'd give us another chance. More

Good family restaurant. Several local Florida beers. The variety of fresh and bake oysters was great. Hailey was a knowledgeable and helpful server. Food was priced well. We will return on our next vacation.

Stopped for an early dinner after a recommendation from a local. Nice casual beach atmosphere without the loud colors and obnoxious name of most PCB restaurants. Flounder, oysters and beer were delicious. Only knock was service was a bit slow but as stated we were there early for dinner so probably not at full staff. Great place to stop after... More

There is a bit of a slowdown period in the later afternoon hours so your guess is likely correct. Glad you enjoyed the food. More

Very cool place on the Inside. Service was great. Food was average. I got the grouper sandwich blackened -- probably should have gotten it fried. Overall, fun place to go.

We came here and waitress/bartender great. Had the unfortunate experience to sit by owner at the bar. I have never been witness to a bigger jerk. Outlandish behavior to his staff and obviously thinks being the owner gives the right to behave poorly. I was excited when we came in at our greeting and the food but we wont be... More

I have a hard time believing Mike was obnoxious unless he was speaking poorly about Hillary Clinton and you are a staunch Democrat but generally he reserves that tirade for me. Other than that. I've know him since he opened his doors in 1976 and have rarely heard an ill word from him unless it was directed at a drunk. More

My partner and I loved this place! They will cook your fresh catch of the day. Amazing sweet tea and red beans and rice. Skip the house salad--- it's just iceberg lettuce and $5.00.

All house salads suck..it's the nature of the business. Next time ask for Rachel's Greek Salad. Same price and really super. More

Food was great, very tasty and the service was very good. All the things inside the restuarant is cool, surfboards, shotguns, shells, money tacked to the rafters. Very cool place to eat.
