Come early for breakfast and eat with the early fishing people. Or lunch or dinner for a beer and my favorite the grouper rueben with a side of beans and rice. Corona Light on tap- you don't find that often!

This is as old Florida as you can get. Great food, service is very congenial, and the locals are cool. The local stories are great.. Fisherman, boaters, and good old fashion regular folks are great!

We go here twice each year, once with a sailing club and once with a boat club. Due to it not being near a good anchorage, we usually go by car, or ride with someone on their power boat. Great food and reasonable prices.
