“Fun atmosphere. Great food.”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We've lived in the area for years but first time we've eaten here. All the tables were full which was a good sign. But while we waited Glenn went through the craft beers (becoming more common round here but still a great find). Once we got seated the staff were outstanding. All the food was really fresh. Also good value. Will certainly try to go back soon. There was a guy playing guitar and singing who was pretty good and just the right volume - may be different with a full band as its pretty enclosed.

“Always Wonderful!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you like blue crab, you MUST go and get some here!

Their other menu items are delicious! Their fish tacos are amazing. All of their side items are wonderful as well. They have a large selection of beers and wine.

Don't be put off my the hole-in-the-wall look from the outside, because you can not get better or fresher seafood anywhere! And Meg and Brittany are the nicest friendliest servers ever!

“Skip the oceanfront restaurants for this fresh seafood.”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

A real great atmosphere and the freshest seafood around. We had a little bit of everything. Cracked conch, oyster shooters, snapper, grouper, shrimp, and it was all delicious. Glenn was extremely knowledgable about every craft beer and every fresh catch special. The bar is very big and the live music was a nice addition to our visit. We went with a friend from Connecticut and we all loved it! While waterfront places might be good for a drink and a view, this place is where you want to go to eat!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The place is very small and short on parking, but that is a good sign. They take ressies for the tables, but plenty of room at the bar. The staff and food were phenomenal. The freshest meal I've had in the area. The crab bisque was the best I've ever eaten. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. A 'hole in the wall' with a keys feel and better food than anyplace in the area.
