“Fried seafood”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Unique coleslaw with tiny shrimp in it - actually very good. White fish "all you can eat" was delicious. The "all you can eat" applied to everything (coleslaw, fries, hush puppies & fish) so it was a good value at $10

“Love it”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

It is almost a hole in the wall. The food is pretty greasy. The drinks are fairly strong. The batter on the shrimp and the chicken had a kick to it which I liked. All this said. It is not really a family place for people with kids. Families with adults like us are ok but I think our group was to large for the place. The food is good I have made this a regular stop on my annual trip to the coast.

“Bad service, OK food”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

The service was terrible. Our server was much more interested in talking with her co-works that had all sat in the booth behind us. We were the only table left in the restaurant and it 820 pm. However, the booth behind the only table with customers is where they sat to talk and share food.

At $9 a drink, one would think the waitress would see if we wanted any beyond the first. The servers were worried about how late they would be required to work and what the others were doing later that night and weekend.

The food was minimally ok. It was the typically greasy fried food that one can get anywhere.

“Fish near the beach, yum”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

This was close to our condo on Perdido Key. Ate here twice. First time I had their Delicious grilled chicken salad. Nice large one with all kinds of good stuff on the lettuce, not just your cheese/greens kind, chicken was good too. Second time was fried shrimp. It was good too. Delightful to eat outside. Sign was not lit up first time, so gotta know about where it is. But worth the hunt. This across the road from the beach but sounds and smells carry across the way.

“Great if you like greasy shrimpy food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is great greasy food. If that's what you want then this is a good place to go. Location is easy to get to, service was adequate. The prices were fine but it wasn't a deal.
