Reviewed 9 August 2017

This restaurant is located in the shopping and dining district of John's Pass. Our booth overlooked the inlet and we had the opportunity to watch the fishing boats return with their catch. The menu is simple, most items offered broiled or fried. All items come with a corn fritter. I had the platter with scallops, shrimp and grouper. It was an 8 out of ten. Not much seasoning, kinda plain if I'm honest. Dinner for three, no cocktails, was about $125

Went here for dinner with husband and 8yr old. Food was so so and overpriced.on level of a chain restaurant but pricier.shrimp grits were okay but husbands steak was tough.mozarella squares tasted like they were soaked in oil. I asked the waitress if they offered military discount (never hurts to ask) and she just stared at me. Atmosphere is okay,but would not go again. If u want a nice meal with great service try harold seltzer steakhouse.

Weve been here many times with different groups. The quality and preparation of the food is consistently good, with a large selection and large portions. The clam chowder is wonderful and full of large pieces of clams. We're always too full for dessert! We keep this place as our go to spit when were at the beach.

My husband and son brought in the fish they caught that day and they prepared them for us for lunch. It was a great meal. You don't have to pay for the main dish, but you do have to buy a plate with sides. It was nice eating freshly caught fish.

Second-time here after a year-went upstairs to be seated outside after seeing no available seating downstairs on a Saturday night. Asked the hostess if we could sit outside she told us we needed to go downstairs. When I told the hostess downstairs was full she seemed like she was in disbelief. When we got our food the conch fritters were chewy and tasteless. The rest of the food wasn't that great. My boyfriend went to use the bathroom and an employee was leaning on the divider that was separating the urinals and texting. He had to tell the employee he needed to use the bathroom to get him to move. The employee tried to leave without washing his hands before my boyfriend told him" to wash his freaking hands." Also, don't buy the coconut drinks they are a scam. You do not get a decent sized drink and there was hardly any alcohol in them. Also, they forget to remove the silica packets from the coconuts before putting your drink in there.
