“Local seafood place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

Off the beaten path this is a locals place with that said the reason you come here is to have freshly prepared seafood at a reasonable price. Portions are big enough for someone with a hearty appetite, I had the fried shrimp and they were perfect. Service was very good, my ice tea was refilled without me having to ask. My friend had a grilled grouper that was spot on! Very obvious this is where the local go to get their craving for seafood satisfied.
Good tasty food in a clean atmosphere, nothing more nothing less! Give it a try.

“Tasty...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

If you're wanting broiled lobster and steamed salt cod, this ain't your place. If you want some good, fried florida seafood (oyster, shrimp, clams, etc) then head on in. Fried but not greasy. Portions and price are right on target.

“Excellent Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

Stopped by after finishing a long day at work. The fried oysters were great, the gator tail was excellent also. Fresh seafood is served, you can tell. The service was quick also. I would recommend it to anyone stopping by Gainesville.
