This restaurant is excellent in every way. It is casual, but not a fish camp. The wall adornments are fun. Every person we came in contact with was pleasant and helpful. The food is excellent. There were six of us and all were happy! I had grouper taco the first night. Melt in your mouth goodness. For our second trip... More

Excellent food and atmosphere! Staff are friendly and helpful. Cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. The crab cakes, conch cakes, and mediterranean oysters are some of our top favorites.

What good fresh food! My wife and I love this place. This is the only casual restaurant that consistently has excellent fresh seafood with imagination. Not only fried food here!

We have eaten here numerous times over the past several years and have always enjoyed the food, ambiance, and their concept of ordering -----then paying on your way out the door. Slowly but surely they must have experienced some "walk outs", as the normal ways of doing business have been tightened up, and the historical "trust" of the customer has... More

It was busy, but I was able to get an outside seat for a great view. It is VERY casual. Good brews and oysters. I'd go back.

Stopped by on Friday evening and told they were out of oysters. I mean how does a restaurant in Apalachicola, Fl run out of oysters? Someone is not minding the store.

However our service couldn't be more cold and dissapointing. The presentation of oysters on the half shell was marginal at best. We had a grilled shrimp po'boy too, the... More
