Was excited to check this place out and it was as hoped. Quiet, out of the chaos that is Duval. Easy to find. Bar staff was friendly and efficient, beer was cold and cheap. Live music was great, and I think the conch fritters were the best I've had yet. Definitely going into the regular rotation.

My wife and I bought tickets for a concert they were having at this venue it was advertised as general omission I bought the tickets my wife and I arrived two hours prior to the concert thinking we would grab a decent table only to find out the owner had reserved every table in the house for friends and family needless to say I was pretty upset I do not recommend this place for a musical event

Tuna is one of our favorite spots. Came back for season and was excited to return to our favorite spot from last year. Went NYE to listen to Caffeine Carl and ended up leaving due to the fact that we could not get service. One bar not even opened and another bartender buried at the side bar. We thought it may be an off/busy night so we went to try again this week to listen to one of our favorite visiting bands the Massacoustics. Started with sitting at a table until no one came. Went to the side bar which was full only to find out no bartender and again the third bar not open. Not sure what’s going on but I think it will be awhile until we come back. The music is the only reason, at this point, we will return.

Sorry, can’t. We got really hard w the Massacoustics their first night and NYE is always insane with our “tuna Drop”. If you do come back and give us a 2nd chance we’ll still have great food, drinks and the best music in town

Cold beer , good food and friendly service- a great winning combination. No parking. Didn’t have a military discount- but gave us a locals discount: much appreciated. Interesting souvenir/ girl shop also. Olga is charming.
