It isn't fancy. You order at the counter they bring the food to your table. They have a good variety of seafood. My wife and I both had the flounder and shrimp.It was excellent. Very fresh and cooked to perfection. A very good cole slaw and the condiments appeared to be homemade. The price was very reasonable. We will come... More

Stopped by on way from Northeast back to Florida. Excellent good. Sizeable portions. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Will definitely stop again. Easy to find, just a couple of minutes of highway.

Homemade tartar, homemade shrimp sauce, and homemade sweet sauce. All really good! I had the "pick all" seafood platter, with whiting, clams, scallops and shrimp. Included two sides, I chose a sweet potato and a salad. For 20 bucks, it was awesome! Good for two :-)

Quaint little downtown restaurant. Lotsa touristy 'Go Fishin' plaques everywhere. Menu on the wall...behind the young girl at the register more interested in her iphone than the customer. The food arrived 25 minutes after we ordered...with no condiments...cocktail sauce, tarter sauce, etc. Requested extra plates and had to go back to the young girl at the register...still on her iphone....

If you like deep fried seafood you've come to the right place. You won't leave hungry and you may leave with enough food for lunch too.

The menu is on a big chalkboard at the counter where you place your order. Lots of seafood to choose from - fried, grilled or poached. I had grilled catfish - tasty and perfectly cooked. My wife had a cooked shrimp salad which was very good. Not a fancy place (plastic cutlery) but worth a short detour off the I95... More

My husband an I were traveling on I95 and stopped for lunch. Be aware that the correct address is 7738 W. Main. Shrimp basket and collards were good and my husband enjoyed his catfish. Nothing fancy but the crowd was almost entirely local.

We went by the address given which took us past the place. I went to Google maps which found it. Nothing fancy. You go up and order pay and they bring it to you. We got the special which was flounder fries Cole slaw drink and dessert for 7.99. It was very good and fast. Good for a quick food... More

I had a co worker suggest that I try something from there for lunch. Well to say the least the seafood was great.
