I knew we were in for a good experience just by the very high end cars that were parked around this very modest, if not dumpy, hard to find strip mall. The place had great local spot written all over it! Not too busy for a Sunday night so we were quickly seated at the bar directly overlooking the cooking area (our preffered location). We really enjoyed watching the chefs work their magic using fairly simple ingredients and utensils. The bartender quickly arrived and our appetizer order of grilled calamari arrived within minutes. Very tasty and not breaded or deep fried like all others! Next up was the hog snapper and swordfish. Again both arrived quickly, were well prepared and tasted great. The occompanying veggie medley and rice/beans were also quite good. Overall the prices seemed inline for the quality of the food. But, do not expect a some fancy, white linen and fine wine establishment. This is simply a good solid, unpretentious seafood joint doing what it does best. The only thing missing is hard liquor but otherwise excellent. Enjoy!

This restaurant was described as a hole in the wall with fantastic seafood by the hotel owner at Hampton Inn. He was absolutely correct. The place was packed so we enjoyed a beer in the lounge a couple of doors down before being seated in a bustling restaurant. I had a yellow tailed snapper (whole) that was moist, very tasty and well complimented by black beans and rice and cole slaw. Also had a bowl of NE clam chowder that was excellent. My wife is not a seafood eater and went with a chicken salad - also very good! We topped it off with a mixed fruit creme brulee that was fantastic! If you're in the area - don't miss this local eating experience.

This restaurant is a local favorite and for very good reason. The food is outstanding! The menu is very extensive. My favorite dish is the blackened scallop spinach salad. Although it is listed as an appetizer, it is really entree sized. Actually anything on the menu is excellent. The service is great. The soups, both clam and conch chowders are amazing. The place gets really crowded on weekends, so expect to wait, but there is a nice bar just 3 doors down that is also part of the restaurant.

The blackened hog snapper was very disappointing. If it was hog snapper it was nothing but panned fried with Cajun seasoning and not blackened. The flourless brownie was hard and difficult to cut and the ice cream gooey. Would not go back and would not recommend.

Ross and M.J. have a classic must visit fresh fist house complete with a great wine list. However, it isn't cheap and the ambience is old Florida if you know what I mean.
