Being from landlocked Nebraska we were hunting for the freshest of fresh. We all shared the low country boil and had a blast. We were licking our lips went through a roll of paper towels too!

We were lucky enough to be in the area during stone crab season. We ordered the large claws, a bit pricey ($21.95) but well worth it. You get 4 huge claws with succulent meat and butter for dipping. We also ordered steamed shrimp which was perfectly cooked. Service was prompt. While the place is not fancy, it is right on the river and the seafood is fresh as this place also has a market. They only accept cash, but an atm is on the premise. Wine and beer is available. We went for lunch and the place quickly became crowded. Well worth it!

Someone told us about this restaurant tucked away on the water and ever since we found it, it's our "place to go" whenever we go out to eat. We're from Maryland so of course we are there for the steamed blue crabs, but the steamed shrimp and corn on the cob are must-haves too. They do only accept cash but luckily there's an ATM on site. We LOVE this place!!

Old Florida at it's best. Bring the family and make sure you want fresh. The Hush puppies and grouper were my favorite. Kelly, Candy and the kids will take very good care of you and your guests. Be sure and visit the fresh seafood market next door and get some to take home.

I was hoping for stone crabs, but the weather was so cold that there were none anywhere. You can tell that they get their local stuff right off their own boats and have a seafood market right next door.
The staff was very friendly, the snow crab legs were delicious and the key lime cider was an interesting alcoholic beverage. The key lime pie was very good.
It is not terribly sophisticated and they only accept cash but it is good food with great service.
