“Good inexpensive seafood”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Been here a few times now, and yes it's not a fancy top notch seafood place, but definitely good especially for the reasonable prices. Service is descent; perhaps a little on the slow side. I've had fried shrimp, oysters, and blackened white fish. All great. I also liked the onion rings and fried pickles (pickles were a bit pricey though) We'll continue to go back.

“Nice, casual place for seafood”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Nice place for seafood. I had the shrimp Caribbean and my wife the grilled whitefish. Both were very good. The service was very friendly and quick.

“Local favorite and well worth the visit”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is an old favorite of Destin. If you are looking for a great bite after being on the beach all day, this is the place. It is casual, staff is friendly, the food is good and prices are reasonable. I love stopping here for a cold one and a platter of fish, shrimp and crab. They have a patio and can get busy late in the afternoon. It looks like a hole in the wall, but don’t be fooled – it’s a super place to grab lunch or even dinner. I’ve only ever eaten at this location (Hwy 98, just off the bridge from Fort Walton).

“Terrible”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Very bad Service, very bad food, I'll never come back. Sorry but it's true they have a lot to improve, specially when they make a living out the tourist, they sell very bad food.

“Best priced seafood in casual setting”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Great patio with casual atmosphere. Suggest the Mahi tacos and crawfish poboy. Good food at a great price.
