“Great Seafood! Friendly Service.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We started with the mushroom appitizer (Trip Advisor review recommendation) and enjoyed the light breading and generous portion. I also enjoyed the Amaretto Orange Blossom!! The Crab Cay Baked Pangus was wonderful!!! Again, the generous portion ensured that I would be enjoying it again for lunch the following day. My roommate ate the grilled shrimp which he also enjoyed. Our server was friendly and and we both had plenty to eat for a reasonable price. Definately returning again when back in town.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Place was packed but we were seated quickly. Very cute decor and awesome view of the gulf. Mushroom appetizer was devine (esp the breading) and a generous portion. I tried the cold shrimp salad poboy and it was enough for two people! Very fresh, great flavor! Everyone else with me enjoyed their meals as well! Server was very friendly and although she had a few to many tables, was able to manage all of them quickly and with a smile!

“THE place for fish”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

If anything was a typical seaside resort town fish restaurant, this is it. It isn't much to look at, just a small indoor dining area with a bar and large refrigerator prominently displayed, and an outdoor covered and enclosed patio for warm weather dining. But the fish is awesome. At our table we had Pangas prepared six different ways and everyone thought theirs was wonderful. A man at the table next to us was having the house special half pound cheeseburger and he thought HIS was the best. I thought the prices were very good, especially the drink prices where my wife's wine was lower than anywhere else we have found the same wine. But, like I say, this place is not much to look at and definitely not romantic. More for families and kids. Service was good, not excellent but also nothing to complain about. The menu states that an 18% tip will be added to large tables but none was added to ours. When I asked the waiter he said we were having a good time and he just didn't want to do that. We beat the tip guideline by a healthy margin because he was so nice. Tip: if the waiter tells you that the house vinaigrette and blue cheese dressing combination will "change your life", it may be an exaggeration but not by much!

“Local lifetime south alabama native/military veteran--don't recommend this restaurant”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is only popular because of its location along west beach gulf shores. Some of the restaurant staff (mainly the table servers) are excellent while some of the management and staff you will find to be rude. The food is average but doesn't match the cost you will pay...
