I loved eating at Cotton Alley Cafe. The portion sizes were just right, the redfish with a crab sauce was delicious, the baked potato just the right texture, and the experience memorable.

Stayed at the Grand Hotel I was at a few minutes walk from that nice restaurant. The food was great and the staff fery kind.

I eat here often and always get the barrimunda or redfish and it never disappoints. If you happen to go for lunch get the fried chicken salad. So good! I like the remolaude dressing. Yum!

This restaurant was recommended to us at a bed and breakfast. They told us what to order. We ordered something off the menu rather than the special. We had to wait a lot longer for our lunch. The portions were really small and the price...More
