It's called Cathy s Too now. Not necessarily a seafood restaurant. Had some fried seafood dishes but mostly cafe dining menu. Lunch buffet was simple with fried chicken. Could have gone to KFC for that. Meal included dessert that waitress never served. Waitress came by...More

The place has a nice covered deck right on the water. The fish was deep fried in a crunchy heavy batter. But it was the service that was a joke. The waitress was clueless and the kid running the till took 10 minutes to figure...More

We stopped and had appetizers and drinks. The view of the water was great from the outdoor deck. The food was OK. Everything on our sampler plate was fried, which was a little disappointing. Service was average. Atmosphere overall was average.

Expecting good Gulf shrimp. Did not find it here. View was all right - typical bayside. All the food apparent was frozen, not fresh. Disappointed to say the least.
