The only fish this place has is Swai. Its not local, its not fresh. Swai is a farm raised catfish from Asia. This must be a predator that thinks you’re on vacation and will never come back. Hopefully, they’ll go out of business soon.

Eat inside or out, take home fresh fish..... You choose... Food was fresh. Service was friendly. Prices were right. Portions were satisfying. Tucked along the roadside, this establishment is popular with tourists and locals alike. VERY crowded in season.

Impulse stop and great decision! Fried clams are huge and juicy; blackened fish sandwich huge and juicy...see a theme here? Rick is fun to talk to and the music was perfect. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

We stopped here for a conch type of fritter. It tasted like pancake batter and instead of being a golden color, it was dark and horrible. I really don't see the attraction of coming to this place except it is very cute and inviting as...More
