We decided to eat here after a day of sightseeing because it was close to NAS Pensacola where we were staying. There weren't a lot of frills like a tourist-trap restaurant and just a sprinkling of nautical and sea life decorations. The food however was plentiful for the price and the prices were reasonable. You can view their menu online. I had a dozen oysters on the 1/2 shell which were good but not the largest I've ever had. We also had the crawfish tails (fried) that were tasty. Their Poboys are good and well stuffed with oysters or shrimp so you can't go wrong with those as your choice. The only gripe we had was that our waitress forgot about us when she had a larger party to tend to. Overall a can't-miss place to eat if you just want seafood with no fluff.

Nothing fancy but great service and wonderful fried seafood. We liked the crab claws and popcorn shrimp best. Their house hot sauce is wonderful. Don't miss the ayce shrimp! Fair prices in a very casual, come as you are setting. Prices are the best in Perdido!

We went twice during our week to counter-balance some of the pricier alternatives. First we had all the fired shrimp we could eat - shrimp were well-cooked, not over done, and the fried okra was very tasty.Both came out steaming hot. Only downer were the hush puppies. Small, with no taste to speak of. Service was a bit slow at first, but other servers pitched in to help.
Next visit we had all the fish we could eat, a mixture of catfish and whitefish. No discernible difference between the two. Same deal as the first visit - not fancy, but lots of food, especially good if you have a group of kiddos. Get there before 6 if you want quick seating. We passed this place several times during the week and most times there were people waiting.
