We spend a lot of time in Carrabelle and eat here every time at least once. The seafood is delicious and fresh. Best shrimp basket and flounder (when they have it)(caught fresh). BUT, we never ever eat at the restaurant. Poor views and bad ambience,...More

Stopped here for lunch after driving by it many times and glad we finally stopped. The food was hot and fresh and enjoyed the fish.

This cute little restaurant is located in a home converted to a restaurant. While it's not on the water (although from a window or two you can see some water from there) it's much better than some of the places to eat on the water....More

We ate there while at an RV park in Carabelle, fl. Food was great. Felt like home cooking. Plus a lot of it. We took some home. Great place and nice people. Would highly recommend. Will definitely go back if in area again.

Happened to stop here and I'm glad we did. The seafood was wonderful. This is about as down home as you can get. Flounder and Grouper were fantastic.

Not much on atmosphere, but the food is plentiful and pretty good. Had the oyster special and these were huge and lightly breaded and fried. Prices are fair considering what you get. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We went on Thursday night at 4:00. Service was fabulous and the food even better. Huge serving of shrimp and oysters, plus fries, cheese grits(needs salt) and ginormous hush puppies. Had buttermilk pie to go, I am not a fan, but it was good. I...More
