First of all... the place is on the high side as far as lunch prices go. The baskets are small given the price point. More cons than pros. Pro: parts of the seafood baskets we had were quite good, but not across the board. Cons: Booth back was not secured and fidgeting large man behind me is possibly going to... More

Food was amazing just a little pricey. The alligator was super delicious even the kids ate it up! The grouper was also delicious!

First, I will say the staff was nice, now the bad. My wife ordered a blackened grouper salad, I didn't know that the salad is supposed to be blackened as wall. The salad came out and was all brown, like it's been sitting around for a few days....outside....in Florida...Needless to say my wife couldn't eat it and returned it, deciding... More

Local restaurant that knows how to cook fish. We had broiled seafood combo with grouper, shrimp, and sea scallops that tasted delicious. Family run with friendly, efficient service and willingness to modify the menu for us. Wonderful home made crackers. seviche was excellent. Casual, sports bar decor.

Wow! The fried green tomatoes were terrific, and definitely try the grouper picatta, it's crazy good! They have a chicken picatta on the menu too, for those folks that don't eat fish. Service was friendly, place was clean. I think the best of the off season selection of restaurants.

It's a cute little place and the folks there are friendly...but you come here for the food, right? And being near ocean, seafood...Hubby and I ordered the platter which had scallops, grouper and shrimp in it...the fish was the worst I have ever tasted...I've had grouper many times...this was not edible! When I told the waitress the fish tasted way... More

This place markets itself as being mostly locally sourced food (on the menu at least). My red fish sandwich may have been local, but it wasn't particularly good. Others were not overly enthused and one said the kid hot dog wasn't good (they toasted the bun--what's up with that? it's a kid meal). And the desserts, particularly the key lime... More
