Went for the clam chowder. It stands up to its name. I had the crab salad and it’s the best. Our service was slow but worth the wait.

We arrived before 6:00 on a Monday and had no problem getting a seat. Service was very good and the food was excellent. The kid's meal come on a souvenir frisbee that's even dated with the year.

This place is pure Florida. Greasy, deep-fried fish, served somewhat quickly, with attitude. The so-called championship clam chowder sucks. Period. Don't order it. It's a good place to eat in a pinch, but really, the food is completely unspectacular.
