We started with the Crispy Shrimp and they were fantastic a light Crispy batter and deep fried and the reduction sauce of the top of them was incredible. For or meal we had the scallops and bone in ribeye . The scallops were like butter and the seasoning... More

This is a quaint little place and from the exterior you would not believe the gourmet food made inside. I've never had such a flavorful meal. I would've never thought it would be the place where I would try caviar for the first time and I enjoyed it. If you have a very special occasion and you want to celebrate... More

Stopped at Skaliwag's last night on the advice of the receptionist at the motel where I stayed. It is billed as "5 Star Food in a Dive Bar." Had I not received the recommendation, I would have driven past the place. Glad I didn't. A fairly extensive menu was written on the chalkboard. Lots of seafood, beef, lamb and past... More

The food here is very good. I'm limiting to 4 stars because it doesn't have the elegant ambiance and fawning wait staff you'd like to see in a five star place. Of course, it doesn't try to do that as it is basically a bar with a Florida transplant chef who really knows how to grill fish. Order the fish.

What a delight. The chef cooks nearby so you can watch his magic and magic it is. The menu is created daily and written on a chalk board. It features fresh fish and seafood as well as red meat. This is a bar, but don't expect burgers and chips. The service is friendly, and this is truly a hidden gem.

5 Star food and service in what some would call a "hole in the wall" location. I would call it relaxed, unique, and very comfortable! We were immediately greeted upon our arrival and chose to sit at the bar, you will find the days menu listed in the 2 chalk boards where you will find a variety of seafood, beef,... More

This place was the best seafood that I have ever had. The Shecrab bisque was the best, you could see the crab in every spoon you ate and the flavors were wonderful. We ate the lobster ravioli as our entree. It was loaded with lobster and you got 8 large pieces with a crab cake on the top. Marshall the... More

We have been wanting to go to this restaurant for over a year and since it was our 20th year anniversary we decided to splurge and treat ourselves. First of all, don't get all dressed up to go here, it's very casual and a person fights the need to go back outside once inside to check if it's the right... More

Hubby and I went here based on the recommendation of the owners of At the Water's Edge. To start off, we both felt as if we were eating dinner with friends. There were two other couples in the restaurant besides us and everyone was chatting with the waiter/bartender - Ryan (?). The entire place was very small, a long bar... More

Its a small restaurant with only 4 tables and then bar seats. The surprise is the fantastic menu. My wife had the crab cakes and I had lobster ravioli. Drinks are great and a good beer selection. Portions were large and some of each came home.
