Found out about this little local gem while on a boating tour. My 10 year old had a dozen oysters on the half shell which he devoured. The adults split a flavorful bowl of peel and eat shrimp that was fantastic. My picky 6 year...More

Good contrast to more expensive, pretentious seafood eateries in area. This is a laidback spot, catering to local working folks and people who love fresh local seafood at bargain prices. We had fresh oysters and smoked mullet. Would definitely return.

In search of good food for a group of tired and weary ball players and their families, we found this place. It didn't disappoint! The grouper cheeks were out of this world!

The grouper sandwich was amazing and the size of the fish was overwhelming. No one in the area serves anything close. They had a whole hogfish fried and served upright that was a sight for the eyes and tasted amazing.

This is a little gem. Not big, but the food is excellent, anything from smoked mullet to ribs. It's all homemade. Cucumber salad is to die for. The owner is a super fellow. When he has time he comes out to see how your meal...More

The oysters were sweet and fresh and delicious, but the rest of our meal was so-so. Lots of fried items - which if you like fried food, great, but not my thing.The fried whole hogfish was enjoyed by those who ordered it. My fish tacos...More

We don't eat raw seafood so my response is based on some of the places we visited and might be your best bet. There are a number of fish house style and locally owned restaurants that offer raw oysters and cold shrimp as... More
