“Delicious food at a very reasonable price!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

I ate at the Stingray Cafe last night with my family and had the whole flounder. It was so large it could have fed two people. I ate one side and then flipped it over and ate the other side. Great hush puppies and sweet tea. Very friendly service. I will definitely come back! It was very busy for a Friday night, but they seemed to handle the crowd pretty well and get everyone seated quickly.

“Delicious fresh food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

we had a delicious meal here recently. My husband had the whole friend flounder and he could not finish it all.. Huge portion. I had the stuffed flounder and it was great. Try the hot crab spread appetizer. Delicious. If you are looking for a fancy place with candlelight and being dressed to the nines, this is isn't it... This is just a great place to eat, relax and enjoy a good meal without breaking the bank. Come casual.

“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

The menu was really large considering the size of the cafe. The food was fresh, tasty, and local. The wait staff was friendly and fast. The restrooms were clean. It's out of the way of all of the busy traffic, so that is nice. For under $20 we had two lunch sandwiches with sides, hush puppies (which were outstanding), and two fountain drinks with free refills. I wish our stay was longer so we could return to try more menu items.

Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

This one of our favorite stops. It's my kind of seafood restaurant. Simple. Best crab cakes anywhere.

“Super fresh local seafood”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Excellent food, lovely people and service, and seafood that tastes like it was only hours out of the sea. We had the Captains Platter of steamed clams, oysters, snow crab legs, shrimp and scallops. Also ordered crab bisque, clam chowder, fresh fried flounder and fried green tomatoes. All served hot, fresh and delicious! Had the pecan pie (only so-so) for dessert. If you want a local, fresh seafood meal cooked to perfection and served in a pleasant atmosphere, this is definitely your place!
