I should have walked out, when the hostess/waitress received payment from a customer at the front desk, then disappeared into the kitchen without seating me. I waited the 3-4 minutes for the other waiter to finally acknowledge my presents. Meanwhile the bartender was telling her stories of bad luck to everyone. I was seated at a booth and ordered my drink. The waiter disappeared for a while, as I contemplated leaving, then returned with my drink. I opted for the panko coated grouper. The meal came in a relative short time. The potato pancakes were the best part of the meal. The fish was not the best, and had a fishy taste. Cole slaw was average.
Not a great meal and poor service. The corn dog at the gas station had more appeal to me.

This restaurant is a little hidden on the WEST side of Hwy20 & I-94; it sits next to the Travelodge Hotel. This restaurant has a fish fry Wednesday AND Friday (AYCE $9.95.) This special comes with salad bar with in-house chef made salads. The salad bar could use some more lighting in the area. The fish fry comes with 3 choices of prepared cod: beer-battered, panko or broiled. I have tried the panko and broiled which ARE OUTSTANDING. In-house chef-made soups can be substituted for the salad bar. For those who do not want seafood, their menu offers items like Ribs, Chicken Marsala & Gyros (NO FROZEN SLABS HERE THE REAL CONE SPIT-ROASTED). Look up their web site for other daily specials. Wednesday also AYCE Crab legs $29.95. VERY MUCH A MUST PLACE TO GO. Friendly, efficient wait staff. If your interested in the bar they offer MANY types of bottled beers.

I really had a great time here last night. The employee's are very nice and were always attentive to my every need. It's nice to find places that you can actually have fun at with the local patrons and enjoy a great dinner to boot. They also have a fairly large selection of beer and wine that is reasonably priced. There are a lot of different features in this restaurant which make it an even more attractive place to visit. For instance, during happy hour they allow you to draw your own pull tab from a jar to create your own discount. Very unique. They also have 2 extra large aquariums that hold a variety of sea life which Include Eels, Sharks, and a large Grouper among other things. I was there while they were feeding them and I thought it was pretty entertaining. I ordered the Cod dinner ($9.95 Wednesday special) a little later on and was very pleased with the timeliness and preparation of my order. It was very tasty and also included a trip to the salad bar. I can't say enough about this place. I had a great time overall and enjoyed a wonderful meal. I will definitely visit this restaurant again the next time I am in the area.

This place was the best part of my stay at travelodge... The hotel sucked but this place was very good. Almost doesn't seem fare to the cove that they have to share a parking lot with that place. Food was really good and they had alligator bites!
