Small local diner. The gumbo looked yummy but since it was so hot outside we ordered the fried shrimp. Soooo good! Also loved the authentic old-school fries. Great prices. Great service. Easy parking.

Po Boys need more sauce, they're all bread and fried shrimp (or whatever you order) so difficult to eat... dry. The salad is good- dark greens instead of ice burg lettuce. Great location right across from the beach! Nice staff and clean building.

1st time here and it was great! The jacked up jalapeños were the bomb! Also had catfish fillets and chargrilled oysters and loved them. The seafood gumbo was just ok for me but I don’t like a strongly flavored dark roux and this one was.
