This is a special place with very good food. It's small, and it's not fancy. However, it was worth our wait of about 30-40 minutes. Reservations are accepted, but we were unsure about when we would be there, so we were prepared to wait. The staff was very busy, but polite and attentive. There were a few "regulars" that came in and expected to be seated ahead of those already waiting, but the staff kept a first come-first served approach that didn't alienate others that might be coming for the first time. I appreciated this. I get a special sense of schadenfreude when pushy patrons are rebuffed when they pressure a place for special treatment, especially during a busy time.

The food was very good. Peel & eat shrimp perfectly cooked, dynamite REAL gumbo, mahi-mahi delicious, stuffed shrimp and even a great hamburger. Again, staff was crushed and still very friendly and attentive. Seating available for 40-50 max between inside and outside deck. If you are patient and don't need fancy surroundings, B&S is worth your time and money.

Great seafood! We were put onto this place through Trip Advisor reviews. And it was really good. Be ready for its appearance - it is a hole in the wall that looks like a seedy bar from the outside. But once inside, great seafood. I'm not a wine drinker, but they seem to have a nice wine selection, too. I had fresh amberjack, grilled. My friends had fried shrimp, crab stuffed fried shrimp, and grilled stuffed flounder. It was all very good!

We ate here on a weeknight. There was about a 5 minute wait. The place is small but the food was very good and the staff super attentive and friendly. We will be back!

Looking for good crab cakes. Read on TA this was the place. Chose to eat inside. Mistake. Hot dining room with flies. What was worse, three families came in with loud, unruly screaming kids. Gobbled my food down and got the hell out. 2 crab cakes, small serving of rice and sautéed squash, dinner salad extra(6$) glass of wine= $40. Won't risk it again.

Food was outstanding. Had three courses and each one was bettter than the next. If there was any thing negative to say it is that the atmoshphere was a little rushed but the food was spectacular
