I called ahead and went onto open table and reserved a party of 10. Needless to say after standing here 35 min. We still haven't been seated !!! Why have a reserve option if you have to wait forever just like walk ins

Great spot for delicious sea food! My husband got the crawfish and I got the fish and shrimp. It was all so good and not "fishy" at all. If you sit outside watch the birds! They will steal food right off your plate!!

Sat on the balcony patio overlooking Pleasure Pier. Entertaining and busy. Wait staff was great and the food and drinks came in large, satisfying portions. Lots of seating along the street outside to accomodate those wanting treats from their large ice cream counter.

From memory, yes. I wouldn't go at peak times however as from my experience it was very busy and may be hard to navigate through the crowd. Might be worth arriving for say an early lunch or supper. This way you'll also be... More
