Be careful what you look like going into this place. My brother-in-law got an unprovoked, disparaging remark from a server just because he has tattoos on his arms. I used to bring visitors from out of town here all the time, but never again.

Tucked next to a bridge right on the intercoastal waterway. This place has a great view and service/food are excellent as well. Seafood is fresh and local. Happy hour daily at three is an added bonus of good value.

We loved the food! If we were local this would be a regular spot. My husband had a seafood platter and he said it had the best Grouper he ever ate. I loved my barbecue chicken.
