Big variety of fish, seafood, and other in a friendly no-frills setting adjoining retail fish market. 99 cent oysters everyday (maybe only happy hour?). Shrimp po’ boy best outside New Orleans.

Not fancy, but comfortable. Service is excellent. The seafood is fresh and tasty. Great gluten free options. Very fair prices. The walleye and grouper ruben aren't highly recommended. You can't go wrong here.

This was the second time we ate here at the request of our kids and was again disappointed. This place is vastly popular with lines out the door, but the food is mostly deep fat fried & small portions, especially the appetizers. We ordered the...More
