While I normally set my culinary radar to places along the beach with a view of the ocean when within a 25 mi. radius of an ocean, we were hungry after running errands all morning, so I spied this place and suggested we give it a try. What a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere is pretty unassuming (the full size alligator skin is pretty impressive), the oversized bar at one side of the space suggests large crowds at a different time of day and the display case for the "market" seemed woefully small. But we checked the menu and spied some delicious sounding options and decided to give it a chance. The meal turned out to be terrific. We had gumbo, shrimp quesadillas and a mahi-mahi rueben with the best fried okra ever. Would have loved the sashimi sampler, but it was not available today. Our server, Melissa, was very friendly and accommodating. Nice surprise along the plaza laden major highway (rt. 64) in Bradenton.
