This is a wonderful place to eat! Very family friendly and just a home spun atmosphere. We had burgers and they were huge and tasted so very good. My girls had the chicken strips and they were good too! We will definitely eat here again on our next trip.

I went in for a to- go order of the delux shrimp bun and it was sooo good and quick! I will revisit to try more of the menu.

Amazing local place with some of the best shrimp gumbo you have ever had! Affordable prices on food and classic gin martinis ($3!)-- what more could you want? Well, that martini comes with great jokes and a smile from the owner. Don't miss this place!

This little spot is away from all of the tourist areas. It's not much to look at from outside but inside it was a relaxed atmosphere that seemed pretty popular with the locals. However, I'm not sure quite why except for the fact that you don't have to wait in line forever as you do at most places on the Seawall. We ordered 3 burgers, 3 fries, and 3 drinks. Although the burgers were just fine, they weren't anything special. Their "cheese" fries that we selected with one of the meals was absolutely horrible. You could clearly see that they had placed a couple of SLICES on top and then just put the plate in a microwave to melt it.?? In addition, I should have read the menu a bit closer because I assumed that the fries came with the burger as in most places. Not so here. Our ticket was OVER $50. Definitely NOT worth the price for what we had ordered.
