“Must get the grilled oysters”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night. Very busy but the hostess was very helpful and got us a table in a reasonable time. We had a great server who was very friendly and attentive. We had the grilled oyster trio..YUM. We got 6 but wished we had gotten a dozen. Our entrees were fried shrimp with sweet potato fries and crab cakes with regular fries. Both were well prepared, hot and tasty. Reasonably priced. Would definitely come back if ever in Fernandina again.

“Sunset special”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Watering hole with a view -- if you're upstairs. Gets crowded at sunset. Good beer selection. Food ok; good for snack.

“What a view!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We enjoyed drinks upstairs and the drinks were amazing! The view is relaxing and we had a wonderful time! Then we went downstairs for dinner. The best dish any of us had was the crab stuffed fish of the day! Very good service staff!

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The View was awesome over looking the Marina. Go to the top level, you get a better view. Wings were tasty as well as shrimp! The veggies were the best I ever had in a restaurant. We will go back!

“Do'r miss the broiled oysters!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We went after sunset with our family, and, after all the reviews we'd read, we really wanted to sit upstairs. Well, it was really just a bar, with bar-height tables for 2...not family friendly.
So we went downstairs to eat, and so glad we did! There was no wait, and the broiled oysters were to die for! The peel-and-eat shrimp were amazing, too! Worth making the trip at least once, if not twice!
