Having lived seasonally in this area for the last ten years, we have, in recent years, been reluctant to order grouper as we're never sure of what we will be served. We heard about this restaurant from friends and went there for the first time this week. The grouper was excellent. It is served a variety of ways; blackened, sauteed, broiled or fried. Our group got the blackened (mine, lightly) and it was seasoned perfectly. The basket includes french fries (very good) and coleslaw, also very good. There are a variety of grouper plates, so something for everyone. Their chowder soup and key lime pie is very good, according to the couple we were with who have been coming to this restaurant for several years.
This is a very small, sidewalk cafe, perhaps 7 or 8 tables inside and 4 or 5 on the sidewalk in front. We arrived just before 11:30 (opening time) and there were already a few people waiting. There is limited seating considering the popularity of the restaurant, so arrive early or expect to have a bit of a wait for seating.
Service is very efficient and the prices are reasonable, considering what you get. We will definitely return.

After two nights of fine dining we wanted a local, casual joint and this was it! Fresh food, very attentive service, and feeling that the staff wanted to get to know you. Char grilled grouper was very tasty, as was my husband's shrimp. We had hushpuppies, slaw, steamed veggies as sides. All were fresh and cooked just right. House wine was very drinkable! Overall, we'll go back for sure, when we're back in Naples.

Terrific food, and waitstaff . Very busy but worth the wait, would go back again & again. The food was fresh, hot and timely even though they were very busy. Also a must have is the Keylime pie to top off the evening. Please go you won't be sorry.

This very small, storefront restaurant is definitely worth a visit. Not only is it relatively inexpensive for the Naples area, but also the service and food are both excellent. Bear in mind that there are only eight or nine tables which are quite close together and a couple of outdoor tables so the wait for a table can be lengthy. Do not pass up the opportunity to dine here. The staff are very friendly and efficient.

Found it on yelp. Read the reviews. The people that said good things were right. Unassuming, not fancy, great quality food. Not expensive. Highly recommend this place.
