Went in originally to try a dish that had been recommended by several people - Grouper Throat Platter! OK, I must say I'm not particularly thrilled to eat the throat of anything, but, hey, did I mention it was recommended by several people? So, while speaking to our server, Jackie (who's been working there since day one and is delightful), I told her I was thinking about the Grouper Throat Platter. And you know what she says? How about the Grouper Cheek Platter??? And I'm thinking, "It just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it?" So, of course, I ask her "What's the difference?" (besides the obvious). Come to find out, the Grouper Throat has bones and the Group Cheek is sweet little medallions of pure meat. I opted for the Grouper Cheek Platter, which came with two sides. I chose Cheese Grits (heavenly) and Fried Okra (perfectly fried). And now for the verdict . . . Fantastic!!! Perfectly fried medallions of light, flaky fish that will definitely be a repeat when I return. However, the only catch (get it ...catch?) is that you can't order the Grouper Cheek just any old time you like. Seems the owner has a couple of boats and he had just returned from fishing and was prepping the catch as we spoke. I was truly getting the freshest catch-of-the-day possible. So, if you are lucky enough to be there when the boat comes in, go for the Cheek. If not, I'm sure the Throat has to be just as tasty, just look out for the bones. And, not to forget my friend's dish - Ribeye Sandwich. Who would have thought about ordering a steak sandwich at a fish house? However, it was quite delicious and tender. It came with a side, as well. We opted for cooked cabbage. Another surprise! Apparently they cook their cabbage with either bacon or ham, because it had the loveliest meaty flavor ever. Nice surprise. Once we feasted on all the above mentioned items, we were asked if we would like dessert. Key Lime Pie, two kinds of Cheesecake? Alas, we couldn't eat another bite. Next time . . .
