“Never going back”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

The best I can say is that it was mediocre. The service, the food, the atmosphere were all just ok. We should have known better since the restaurant was empty though the bar was full. Nothing to write home about, much better seafood to be had literally across the street. And we found out the specials(one I would have ordered) after we had already been served. We would have ordered the crab leg special, but our waitress did not mention it at all.

“AVOID”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

There were only two tables seated when we walked in.. should have known better. Food was terrible, was not cooked, mashed potato was cold... they could have at least stuck it in the microwave. Beer was cold, good draft selection.. that all I can say... will never go back.

“If it wasn't for the Groupon...”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Always on look out for good seafood in our coastal FL home and learned of this place through an online Groupon Deal. Atmosphere great, friendly and good impression, for lunch; Would most likely be even friendlier during Happy Hour! Greeted & seated quickly & service excellent;

High point of the meal turned out to be the appetizers which actually had flavor. Unfortunately the remainder of the meal left much to be desired...NO FLAVOR. The Cole slaw had a hit of cabbage flavor; dusted wings were tasteless and dry to the bone and the actual chicken meat had no flavor! The grouper sandwich arrived on a soggy Kaiser roll, that was sticky, and the grouper itself possessed only a vague fishy taste; The crab stuffed shrimp, was OK. The crab stuffing delicately flavored; The baked potato had to be reordered as the 1st one wasn't done;
Very Disappointed as this restaurant brags of having an owner from Maryland who makes the "original Maryland Crabcakes" though we tried lived up to this expectation, and I have had Maryland crabcakes, & stuffed shrimp from a chef who is from Maryland!
Don't waste your money unless you're drinking and then you won't care what the food tastes like! Thank Goodness we had the Groupon coupon!

“Better than your average bear..yogi”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Groupon and vacation took us there. My grilled shrimp x 2 were delicious for lunch. My Hubby's recommended crab cake sandwich was divine. Waitress was fun and informative. Can eat outdoors or spacious clean indoors. We'll definitely go back on our own.

“EVERYTHING WAS GREAT !!!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

CON - We only ate there one time during our vacation.
PRO - EVERYTHING ELSE
The server was Great - pleasant and playful. He was on time with everything.
The food was great as well - Fish broiled moist and flakey.
General atmosphere - Fans everywhere kept the breeze going - nice light music that we could talk in a normal voice and still be heard and understood. '

We put them on the next year's 2 or 3 times list
