“Secret hideaway”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Very good sushi. Limited sushi menu but nice. If you like fish in its truest form try the Thai Fry fish. You pick from a list of whole fresh caught fish from the owners boats and weight size and then they score the fish and deep fry it. WOW AWESOME! You can get fish weighing 1 to 5 pounds pending on the catch that day. Be ready though because it's the whole fish put in front of you head and all. You get 2 sides. I recommend the cucumber/tomato salad and hush puppies. Met owner and he says he has an awesome kitchen staff made up of primarly of Japanese folk which is why their sushi is so good. Not a lot of servers on the floor but they work hard to take care of the guests and have always been cordial. Ask for Jenna. We came first as husband and wife and now feel confident enough that we have invited others to join us. Hope this helps.

“Clams on the half shells”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

If you ever looked for clams on the half shell in Florida you know they are rare. Oysters are plentiful but clams are hard to find.

Kyle has his own clam bed and the clams are fresh and taste great. He is originally from Northport LI, where clams reign supreme.

Their sushi and fish are also fresh and right off the boat. The prices are good and they have a full bar with daily specials and good prices.

Off the beaten path but worth the stop.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

This place is tucked away in a spot where not a lot of traffic flows. My daughter and I heard they had good sushi, so we stopped here. When you walk in it looks like a typical sports pub. But with a twist! They specialize in seafood and sushi. They sunrise roll was the best I have ever tasted. I was instantly amazed when I tasted it. Since then we have been back several times and have tried the fish, other sushi rolls, the salads and the burger. All excellent! I highly recommend this place!
