We have been everywhere when it comes to Florida, from Key West to Pine Island to Cedar Key to Amelia Island. This wonderful place has cold beer, cold oysters, warm smiles, great service and dog friendly. We will always make time to spend a day here watching boats go by, peeling and eating shrimp, drinking beer and meeting strangers with a smile. A must stop for old school cool.

I'll start off by saying the crawfish were good, but not for $22.95 p/lb which is ridiculous. That's about it...service was bad, menu is worse. Somehow, the renovation made the place worse off. This place has been there for a long time...I don't get the appeal. Just uncomfortable and blah! Regardless, this review won't break them...I just wanted to share my experience.

Came here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the lively atmosphere and live music. Nice crowd of people. Parking can be a little iffy. Great view. They have expanded into the building next-door. I really like their gumbo.
