We stopped in for a bite with the family. I ordered the Opelousas and my husband ordered the Blackened Snapper. While the Opelousas had too much chili powder for me, we both really enjoyed his snapper.More

Food here is pricey and the place is a bit run down. However, the food is good and staff is always friendly. Now that it's non-smoking the atmosphere is much better. If you are in Surfside, chances are you will eat here at least once.
