Absolutely delicious. This is my wife and my favorite restaurant in Venice. We order their cedar smoked salmon. The taste is unmistakably one of a kind. Their are other fantastic friends ish and non fish dishes to on their menu. We have tried a few of these but keep coming for their salmon. The restaurant is small, but has outside... More

I was there with a party of 5. We all enjoyed our entrees. My coconut Shrimp was Excellent, but my fries were very greasy. The "15 min" wait per the Hostess ended up being probably 30 min til we were seated. The wait after ordering our food was at least 35-40 min. The Red fish, Salmon, Haddock Sandwich were all... More

This small restaurant in a strip mall is much more than it appears on the outside. The menu is very extensive. Jonathan was very helpful to explain specials and prices, even of wine and beer as it was happy hour. The food was very tasty and prices were reasonable. I will definitely go again.

It was a crowded Friday evening but there was room at the bar. I had the alligator soup which was rich with cream and chunks of alligator that tasted like chicken. Very good. My mates had the special fish tacos and enjoyed them. I also had a dish of 12 shrimp appetizer and they were good as well. We split... More

I stopped in for lunch at noon and found it to be packed so I sat at the bar. I was given a menu almost immediately. They brought me my soda within minutes while I looked at the menu. I decided on the Nachos with added blackened shrimp. Too many to eat. Portion was very large, and I can eat... More

Husband and I stopped by for a late lunch on a errand running day. I ordered the alligator soup and it was wonderful! and a small salad wedge, yum. Husband was so impressed with a beer made in bourbon barrels!, he enjoyed the small wedge with added shrimp. The waitress was absolutely wonderful, made us feel like regulars. Can't wait... More

This is a small restaurant in a strip mall next to Publix. It has a couple outside tables but you are basically sitting on the sidewalk looking at the parking lot. The interior is nice and I prefer it inside. The food is good but the portions are NORMAL not the super sized fare of so many places these days.... More

Just had a great dinner at a small convenient spot . . . . had to wait a bit, but Brian and Stu were so good to us at the bar. Give it a try and you will want to come back, but don't be in a big hurry. What else do you HAVE to do???? The food is outstanding,... More

In the middle of a shopping strip mall is this little oasis. Casual relaxed dining with friendly help. Our fish dinners were served on time and very tasty. Recommend trying.

I ordered salmon(cedar plank), and although it was very good, it didn't reach the hyped level of other reviews. To be fair, salmon is what I usually order, and we dine out a lot in Michigan, so I have much t compare it to. Service was good here. It's small, so go early as it fills up, especially on Wednesdays.... More
