The food is diverse and the service is very nice. I had the daily special and was pleasantly surprised about the quality and sizing of the portion. There is good parking and the place is easy to find but it is a bit off the beaten path so a smartphone or GPS is recommended for non locals

Mullet, flounder, & gumbo all very good. Local hole-in-the-wall type restaurant that I would highly suggest going to.

The Point has been here for years out on Innerarity road. Most of the furnishings have been there just as long. There big push is Mullet which I feel has faltered in the past few years. We used to go there every month but now maybe once or twice a year.

kinda looks like house with low ceilings but the service i got was good, we tried gumbo it was ok then i ordered a fish sandwich it was great, the bread was a little buttery, my friend ordered mullet it looked good, my friend said a little dry but they didnt drown it in batter, a few small things on our tastes but the place was actually pretty good i'd come back ....

We try to visit this joint on every trip to the beach. It's definitely a dive, but those are the best kinds to me! the locals love it, the live music is always good, and the food is excellent. Prices are decent too, much better than some of the restaurants in this area. I always get the crab legs, and the boiled potatoes drowned in butter are a must for the side. Don't forget dessert!
