“They travel from afar!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This place is a hidden gem. The fish & seafood is caught & brought in daily - oysters, scallops etc. It looks like a fisherman's shack from outside, but don't be fooled. Inside it is very informal & the staff are very friendly. Apparently in the peak season, people can queue for 2 hours for a table - we were lucky, especially as we were staying virtually next door. Not expensive - we shared a basket. You have to try this place.

“Seems to be pretty well run; prices are fair”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Stopped in for lunch; pretty good assortment of fried and broiled platters. God service, and reasonably priced, fresh food. We will return when in the area.

“Bread Bowl with scallops and shrimp...mmmm good.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Don't miss this spot for great seafood in the coolest "old Florida" town on the gulf coast. Classic rock-n-roll playing over the PA and a modern spin on casual seafood dishes, a winning combination.

“Killer Seafood”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is easily the best restaurant in a 60 mile radius. We go here at least twice every time we go down to St. Joe's beach. The place is small so you may have to wait a while for a table. The service is great and the food is excellent. My picky 5 year old even likes it. I always get the shrimp in the simmering sauce, even though I'm allergic to shrimp!!! The Benadryl hangover is worth it. It may be hard but try to save room for the key lime pie which is probably the best I've had. The prices are reasonable, just make sure you bring cash.
