Showed up early with group of 5 to watch Buccaneers and other late NFL games on last day of the season. Sports bar full of Steelers fans with steelers on every TV. Host said he could move us in to watch games after Steelers fans cleared out. We waited 90 minutes and watched them seat multiple groups in SportsBar. Finally asked staff what was up and they said they wouldn't be showing Buccaneers game in the Sports bar so they wouldn't move us. Had to try 3 different bars to find seating and missed most of the first half. Thanks for nothing Cooters.

HUGE portions of really nicely cooked food, served by super friendly staff. We shared chicken wings and onion rings to start - both were delicious. Main courses were steak and grouper sandwich - both fab - and one all you can eat crab claw special - which was a sight to behold and a feat to eat! Well worth a visit.

The food was amazing! We had no idea what to expect when we stumbled upon this place while just wandering around, but we loved the food, and atmosphere. Great place to have seafood with a Louisiana flair!

We heard good things about this place and decided to try it out. Its in the middle of Pier 60, not really a "beach bar" like I would have thought, but glad we found it. We had a party of five and were seated quickly right out on the patio. We all had seafood, with the exception of my 12 year old who ordered a cheeseburger. My grouper sandwich was great! The server was attentive and never let our drinks - alcohol or not - run out. I don't know that I would bring small kids here - The tables are close and there is no room for those who like to let there kids run wild. Definitely a local place to try!
