Very simply this place is fantastic! So much so we visited more than once. The food was terrific and the portions plenty to take away. Essentially everything on the menu was tried and proven quite good.
The staff was friendly and incredibly kind to all our kids and the atmosphere was inviting and fun.

We will make this a required stop when nearby. Impossible to see how one could leave unsatisfied.

We've been vacationing in this area for 13 years, and only discovered this hidden gem now, even though it's been open for five years. It is a little off the beaten path, so it could be overlooked. Although this is not "fine dining", it is clean, well-decorated and overlooks the beautiful Apalachicola Bay. It even has outside dining that allows pets! You order at the counter, then the very friendly and attentive waitresses take care of the rest. In our party of six, we ordered the full array of menu items...steamed clams, alligator and white bean gumbo, yellowfin tuna spread, eggplant stack, blackened grouper sandwich, fish fingers, chicken tenders and fried green beans. (No oysters this time but they served them at least six or eight different ways.) And we ALL absolutely loved everything. This place will now be our new favorite go-to restaurant!

Just a little off the beaten path and our first visit after coming to the area for 13 years. Our group had a variety of dishes ranging from the yellow fin tuna dip,eggplant stack, steamed clams, grouper sandwich, fried green beans, alligator white bean gumbo, and fried fish basket. ALL were delicious!!! This is truly a rare find- we were all happy with our food! Will definitely put this place on our "not to miss" list!

Clams were tasty but very, very hot temp wise. The lobster bisque was good. Still can't the dinging of the microwave out of my mind!!!
