Noisy, crowded, food mediocre, but seemed that everything was fried. Disappointed and don't know how they survive.

This place looked good but after waiting hald an hour (with a 5 year old child), the waiter finally came to take our order (there were 4 other tables occupied - not busy at all). He did apologise and said my glass of wine was on him (fair enough). We ordered but when the food finally came it wasn't complete and most of it was cold. He also forgot the crab crackers for my son. The food was not particularly good and we left alot although my son liked his crab. The waiter offered a free desert but by then we'd had enough and just wanted to get out as soon as possible. The manager must have known we'd had a bad meal as he tried to ignore us. Never again! Must remember to read the reviews first!

The atmosphere is cute. But the food is not good if you don't like fried food.

I have been going here for years and it's been always great. Really enjoy it every time I come to Amelia Island.

Having visited in the 1980's when this was a good seafood joint we decided to try this restaurant again without looking at reviews. Bad decision. There were 6 of us, we all ordered different meals and they were all left on the plates uneaten when we paid the bill. The crab had been boiled in a broth that gave it a lousy taste, the soup tasted like hot water with bits of butter floating in it. On being given processed spread for our potatoes we all asked for butter, only to find it had gone off and tasted like old blue cheese. A truly horrible night out.
