Excellent fresh seafood on the bayou side of St Pete Beach. Quirky but friendly and efficient servers, not much atmosphere (get there early and sit outside). Hot shrimp appetizer and crabcakes were amazing.

We asked several locals for the best place for seafood and they suggested this place. We were not disappointed. Despite chilly temps we had a great meal outside on the covered deck with heaters.

We came here the last time we visited and each time have had the grilled grouper. It’s a great choice and the restaurant is right on the water. They have a few gf choices, but no buns or bread. Would eat here again.

Margaritas are a must during happy hour. Menu has a good variety. Staff are outgoing. This place has that old Florida magic. Seating inside or outside. Nightly feeding of the catfish was a unique experience. Go early as there is always a wait.

Finally found a place I can relate the crunchy shrimp & the sauce also to when I was in Hawaii. Thai sweet red chili sauce better than the spaghetti/ketchup looking sauce
