“Excellent”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We have never had a bad meal here. Their burgers are the best. The fried shrimp and fried oysters are better than any on the island. Service, especially from Greg, can' t be beat. This is a place that should not be missed.

“great stop for food and environment in Port A”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I liked the atmosphere, the fresh bread and the staff at this local establishment. My son said the burger was one of the best he ever had. I had the softshell crab poorboy, but would make another selection - crab was good but bread oversized. We will return on our next visit.

“You gotta be kidding”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Ordered a tugboat early bird special. Eight, tiny tasteless, boiled to death shrimp, one slice of decent sausage ( barely a mouthful,) , corn , which had boiled for hours, tasteless ! Tiny little red potato. Will not be returning. Wait staff was over worked or just clueless. A darling place needing some good management and a chef. We left and picked up boiled shrimp at Avery's to take home some amazingly delicious Jumbo shrimp! Yummy!

“Mediocre and Overpriced”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

First, the good: the servers were all very nice and helpful, Gand they have a full bar. But they were out of many beers on tap, as well as their gumbo. Food was OK ( I had a grilled mahi mahi poboy, and my wife grilled shrimp), but prices were on the high side. With one mixed drink and tip, $57. The shrimp was filleted, but not shelled.
Anyway, there is nothing terrible here, just better options.

“Go when they aren't busy.”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This place can be hit or miss. We ONLY go here on the off season. Most of the not-so-good reviews are from when the place is packed. When it isn't busy the food is excellent (outstanding gumbo - get a bowl not a cup, and share), great service too.
