Felt hungry while walking around John's Pass and found this nice hidden place to eat. The service was great, friendly and attentive. The crab was great and the Lobster Mac n Cheese was brilliant. Worth a visit

It's not really hidden, it just doesn't have any curb appeal as you walk up to the dock at Johns Pass. We saw a little sign that said Florida Boil and decided to give it a try. We walked in and heard crickets, nobody eating...More

Best seafood in town! The crab legs are phenomenal. And if you like low country boil (shrimp, crawfish, potatoes, corn, mussels, clams) you will LOVE this place! To top it off, the service is incredible! Located in John's Pass, Madeira Beach.

Was referred to visit from a friend and was not disappointed! Best steamed seafood in the area and for a good price. Staff was very nice as well. I'll be back for sure.

Great sea food. Best that I have had at Madeira all the way to Clearwater Beach. I had the crab legs, potatoes, and corn. Not fancy though. It is a picnic style service but it works because of the food and friendly staff.

We were looking for a good seafood boil for lunch and we found it. The big one served two adults and two kids. Also had the grouper tacos. Service was really good as well...very helpful with menu selections. Would definitely recommend.

Stopped in for a late lunch and had steamed claims, crawfish, lobster MAC and cheese and they were all excellent. You order at the counter sit and they bring your food to the table. Tables are picnic style benches but it makes for a very...More
