The best seafood place you can find in town. We love their oysters and the red royal shrimp. The best. their stuffed flounder is excellent taste ,too. We always get great service and love to sit outside on the gliders.

Had a great lunch, beautiful atmosphere on the bay. Great wait staff and awesome food. I've been a couple of times and will definitely keep coming back. I had fried shrimp lunch plate and it was enough for dinner.

The weather was perfect for enjoying the out door seating on Sunday. I think we worked our way through most of the appetizers on the menu and then moved onto the "Crab Clusters". The service was top notch and we can't wait for our return visit.

The Torpedoes had big crab meat and fresh tasting. The Mahi Avocado was great tasting the squash was cooked perfect still had a slight crunch. Key lime pie was creamy and light. Great view of the water. Morgan was our waiter and great service at its best. I will come back. Just don't sit outside on the swinging booths.

We visited midweek for dinner. It was quiet, the place is cavernous inside . We sat outside on the water , very nice . The fried oysters were fresh and the Key West shrimp sweet and juicy. The combination platters and the Mahi Mahi were tasty and generous. Overall a very good experience with excellent and friendly service .

We boated in with a group of friends (and our dog) on a beautiful day and sat outside on one of the swing tables for a mid afternoon lunch. Talk about wonderful seafood - the shrimp appetizer, if you can call them shrimp - giant as they were, were so incredible I had to order two. The breeze was perfect... More

We came with 13 people on a week night around 7 pm and had no issues getting a large table. It was a great place to meet up with friends and share a meal. Service was as expected for a large group.

Best fresh seafood in the area, we always eat here when we are in town. The street doesn't pass by, it ends here. To find it on your GPS you may have to enter Dickinson as the city, I did.
