The real deal. Quick service, fair prices. The Grouper sandwich was fresh and tasty, and the Cole Slaw was excellent.

Quick stop for us... grouper sandwiches were top-notch. One got it fried, the other blackened. Both were excellent. Also really good hushpuppies and fresh chips. Only downside was a very limited beer selection.

Had 2 smalls as my dinner. The shrimp were great, the crab cakes are not what I had expected, but I have high expectations when it comes to crab cakes, these were not lump crab cakes, but had some crab, and a bunch of filler.
