They say their a fresh seafood restaurant, but I wouldn't call it fresh, they didn't have the first kind of local seafood on the menu except for oysters. I tried the BBQ brisket and have to say it the worst I been served. looked like they grilled it like a pc of liver, very dry. service was basic but friendly.

Only critique, wish they would accept American Express. Second time we've visited where one in our party wanted to pay w/ AmerExp & it's not accepted. I get the fact... More

Waiter said when we sent back they should not have come out of kitchen. Hey buddy, you can stop bad food. Word to owner,... More

We had a great fish dinner. The server was good but didn't come back to check on us. But the food was great and slot of it. Oh but we got the shrimp cocktail $12 for 5 shrimp that is pricey.

We decided to leave the main street area for dinner and try this place after several locals said it was a good choice. We really enjoyed it. The Key West Bisque for a starter was fabulous. The drinks were good and we both enjoyed our meal. The shrimp and grits was a little light on the shrimp but it was... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch and was not disappointed. Everyone is so friendly and the food, a special peach salad for summer, is delicious. Great drink choices. Can;t wait to go back for dinner. They also sell fresh seafood which looked well presented and fresh.
