So sad to go by and just see pilings left. Hope they can reopen in the future. Jewel was great at making everyone feel at home . Never without a smile. Some of the best shrimp around.

Had a wonderful lunch on the back deck. Mo served us with hospitality and speed. Made great recommendations. Oysters and shrimp were amazing and hubby liked his Cuban as well. We’ll definitely be back.

A must experience if you are out this way. Our waitress was a hoot. Views are great. Sunset time was sensational. The food was good. But you come here for the experience in my opinion.
