Really excellent food at decent prices. Quaint atmosphere - it's an old, remodeled house. Outside dining is available on a large deck beside a pretty coy pond fed by a small waterfall. Maybe my favorite seafood restaurant in the area.

High priced, waitress did not seem to want to explain how the serving works. For the price they could serve real melted butter instead of tasteless oil. Went home still hungry.

Food was good but not great. Interesting menu with some Cajun choices. Nice old Florida feeling in an old house.

Went here a few times while wintering in PG. The place is not fancy at all but the food is really good and reasonably priced. Fresh seafood is delivered daily from local fishermen. Service is also very good. Come early. The place is small and they fill up fast. A testament to the great fresh seafood.

A pleasant surprise alongside the road. Checked with tripadvisor and found this place on our way north. Having lived in Maryland and Virginia for many years, it was quite a surprise to find that Florida blue crab were featured. We ordered fried catfish and were very pleased. Then, saw out neighbor table with their crab delight. So...we ordered 6 and... More

The place is small and VERY casual. There are a few seats inside but overall it's covered picnic benches just perfect for a large order of blue crabs. They get really busy so service can get a bit slow but it's efficient. The food was great! Our table ordered a dozen shrimp, a half a dozen blue crabs, garlic crab... More

Ordered the red snapper fish & chips at almost $22 per meal. We received 2 tiny pieces of fish that were overcooked and some french fries. No side dish was included and we had to request to have some lemon. We will never return again as this was their 2nd chance at proving us wrong. We do not recommend eating... More

Drove by and thought it looked interesting, and went back for dinner. Good portion size, but a little pricey. However the ambiance and friendly wait staff was worth it.
