We had raw oysters, cold peeled shrimp and fish fingers. Oysters and shrimp...so so. Fish fingers were super moist and flaky..deep fried but not oily at oil...great light batter. As an app $7.95...great price. Friendly service and nice location right off of Gandy.

Ate there yesterday and wasn’t highly impressed. We waited for a table outside for about 10-15 minutes which was fine. Then got a table. My husband ordered blue crab which they were out of. I ordered clam chowder soup to start and it was bland....More
