Recommended by friends. Not a fancy place but has good food. Service could be improved. We ordered from the lunch menu as it was 2:30 . . . 1 shrimp basket w/ fries & slaw, 1 grilled sea scallops basket w/ fries & slaw. All of the items were very good (my scallops filled my longing for some good ones).... More

Sometimes the mullet is a little off, almost mushy. We even avoided The Point for that reason. We hit it right the other evening. Instead of large pieces of fish, I received a pile of small filets cooked perfectly. Her steak was good but didn't have much seasoning. It was also cooked more on the rare side instead of medium...

My friend had the grouper and I had the crab cakes. We started with raw oysters, which were cold and delicious. Had drinks from the bar and listened to a great guitar duo. Great food and atmosphere. The burgers looked nice. Try the hush puppies they're soft and tasty. A lot of food for the money!

Recommend by somebody. This place has been there for 60 years. Can't believe we have never tried this spot. It is a hole in the wall but the food is awesome.

Out of the way location. You really have too look for it. But once you get there the food was good but not great, and the service was too slow for the place that only had a few couples in the dining room. May be better for fried food than grilled.

We decided to try a new place. So glad we did! The server was great, the food was fresh and fast. My husband and daughter had the burger and loved it. I had the crab cakes and they were delicious. Desserts are homemade too! Small family owned business that is great!

We went for lunch on a friend's recommendation. The server was scattered and there were only 4 tables of customers. One of the guys was trying to ask her out so she was more concerned about flirting with him than bringing plates for our appetizers. We left before getting our lunch because we waited 30 minutes for a bowl of... More

This is a small local place that someone recommended to us, so we tried it. It was a great place for local seafood. The food was great....really fresh. The service was great and fast. Will definitely go back on our next visit to the beach.
