Wyatt did a fabulous job working our table. He took the drink orders immediately and told us about the special "Almondy". WOW!!! A fresh fish fillet with a very light crust, served with seasoned cut up small potatoes. The entree was topped with a very delicious cheese sauce that you can have served on the side. Wyatt came back to... More

in 2015 this was one of our favorite restaurants on the Island. we were warned that the food, service and selections had gone down but we couldnt believe it so we tried it anyway . The locals were correct. Even the shrimp was "chewy". Too bad beacause the other two establishments owned by Al are still good. Pass on this... More

With only 3 tables occupied (which included ours) service was practically non existent and have no idea what the kitchen does. A bowl of soup and a Mexican cocktail this shouldn't have taken almost an hour to receive. This was their 2nd chance and is now off our list for our next visit to SPI. If the food had not... More

This is the first place we go to when we get to the island. We love the almond crusted fish on Monday and most of the daily specials. Good food and great service.

Wasn't the greatest seafood. Pirates Landing was much better. Okra and peppers needed to be cooked longer. Tuna steak was cold and they served raw oysters with ketchup instead of cocktail sauce, had to ask for horseradish and crackers. Wouldn't say they know how to serve seafood! Oysters were fresh however. if you live Louisiana cooking....stay away from here! Not... More
