A great place to relax on the dock. It is clean and casual. The view is great. You can sit right on the dock, and the cafe itself is open to the outdoors. The food is very good casual
sea fare. The service is friendly and first rate. Great bar and drinks. Good beer selection.

Came in for a leisurely lunch, with friends. We arrived at 1:00PM, as we had been told it was extremely busy at the lunch hour, 11 to 1. Good advice, as it was packed when the first of our party arrived. We were all seated by 1:10. Our food and service was very good. 5 in our party and no one had any complaints. I think, that by next summer, this restaurant will be busy ALL the time. Great view of the bayou. Good selection of beer, but they need to get some draft beers.

My wife and I had a feast with the daily specials. The blackened amberjack and stuffed grouper were excellently prepared. The "stuffing" was crab and shrimp and unlike some places, it was mostly seafood in the stuffing. Someone also did a great job of balancing the flavor. I can't think how they could have added anything to the dish to make it better without tipping the balance in a unfavorable direction. The portion size was also very reasonable. The price was in the $20 per plate range.

They had a great happy hour from 2 to 6 with four dollar wells and one dollar off beer and wine. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was lovely but the service was a touch too slow.

They were out of too many things on a menu that lacked variety. The fresh catch was "just caught the other day". Service could have been better especially since the place is small and was not very busy. I recommend sitting outside near the water if you do go.
