For Oysters stop by at Happy Hour, like $7 a Dozen can’t be beat. Food is good and they always have someone playing music. It’s always a crowded spot but the wait isn’t to long. Burgers, fish and shrimp all good.

A group of us went here after dinner, sat outside by the bar and had great service, good drinks at great prices. Happy hour was doubles for singles, you can't ask for more!

The food was good, the drinks were yummy. I would've given the place five stars, but even months later the most memorable aspect of this place was a conversation between an employee and a drunk patron at the bar that was riddled with cursing. I...More

Stopped by for a few appetizers on a random Tuesday afternoon. We had the grouper bites, tuna tartare, and the wings. Everything was amazing. All were amazing. We will definitely be back next year when we come back to visit.
