The food was not good. The building was dirty and unappealing. They also allow patrons to bring their animals in...our server seemed to be bothered by every question we ask from "what are the lunch specials... To can we please have some tarter sauce. " I would not recommend this place.

Its a little pricey. All good seafood is. And this place has excellent seafood with a Cajun kick. I had chicken and jambalaya since I'm not a seafood eater but I did try my husbands spiced shrimp and they were awesome. EAT HERE!!!

We just left the restaurant... The food SUCKED!!!!!! I ordered soft shell crab and all I tasted was batter!!! The fries were cold when they made it to the table and the cole slaw was just shredded cabbage ( these were the sides that came with it). My husband had to sit through his whole meal with nothing to drink... More

We did have a very nice waitress, but she had only been working there but 4 weeks. She was very friendly and kept checking on us and keeping the drinks refilled. There were several inconsistencies between their menu and what was actually offered. When I questioned the manager (after the 3rd issue), he flat out said that the waitress lied.... More

My husband and I went here after a long drive from Pensacola. I recommend not taking 28 to get to Panama City Beach from the West, as it took over 3 hours from Pensacola, when it should have taken an hour and a half. However, many of the roads seemed to be backed up due to rain. I have never... More

We were here on a very rainy day so lots of people were there and I just dont think they were prepared. We were wet and it was cold inside and the manager was rude about turning off the fans. Once we finally got sat and got our food it was pretty good. The fish was wonderful and the shrimp... More

We visited this restaurant in Oct 2011. Website didn't give choice of 2011, so I chose 2012. Service was horrible. We could have gotten better customer service at Taco Bell. Host walked us to our table and basically threw our menus on the table and walked away. Our waitress was great, btw. She did her best. Food was not that... More

We have been eating here for years and haven't a complaint. The food is great, great device, and if they are out of something they bend over backwards to make sure your happy. You defiantly do not go away hungry. And the hush puppies are great I could eat them as a meal.

Atmosphere was cool (as the name would imply). Wife had the fish tacos (delicious) and I had the crab sandwich (ok, but a bit soggy). Prices are kinda high for what it is, but a decent place to visit just for kicks and giggles.

We used to love this place but this last trip was very disappointing. The service was slow, our waitress barely spoke English, they messed up my order, my daughter's kids cocktail that cost $4.00 was supposed to be served in a souvenir cup - wasn't, they were out of them. The seafood prices were very high, and the building and... More

We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
