“Wonderful Family Place!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

They will cook your day's catch one of several delectable ways and provide an Old Florida atmosphere that is great for families. You can play games while you wait for your food and the staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to provide for special requests. Well-priced and the hush puppies are wonderful!

“Always a must visit!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

On a nice a with gulf breezes blowing, you'll for sure enjoy a cold beverage on the nautically decorated outside deck. Great sea food and superior burger and fries. Jessie was a darling, great server who had a contagious smile.

We'll be back...

“Enjoyable, Lazy Afternoon Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Serves beer, wine and soft drinks. We have been back several times but have only had drinks and appetizers. Good happy hour drink prices. We have returned several times for "the pot" of steamed oysters and clams. Other appetizers (onion sticks and terryaki chicken wings) were good but nothing spectacular. Wait staff is very friendly. Atmosphere is very casual. Worth a trip for a drink and appetizer.

“Good grilled grouper caesar”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The grilled grouper on top of a Caesar salad was excellent fish. The salad greens could have been cut up a bit better. My husband's fried shrimp was a tad overcooked. The price is good, especially for beer. Nice outdoor seating.

Reviewed October 23, 2013

Our favorite meal during our whole trip. Great campy atmosphere, and the grouper sandwich couldn't have been better. Delish!
