ALWAYS Grouper fingers and Onion rings for lunch. Make sure to put Malt Vinegar on the Grouper! Good atmosphere, good food, good service, fair prices. Who can ask for more when you're away on your annual vacation!

August is lobster fest month. I had lobster quesadillas and dipped them in lobster bisque at the recommendation of Jess, at the bar. I'm still telling my friends how delicious it was. Great atmosphere and most hospitable staff.
