The seafood here is fresh and served with great flavors. Coconut shrimp and beef tacos are excellent. You have to dress down here as it is a shack on the beach. You will not be disappointed with the meal here. Cash only but it is...More

I was very critical of this place in my last review. I am not revisiting places and have found this to be greatly improved, in service, in food, and in the whole experience. One review said whoever runs this place should be shot for wasting...More

We watched the sunset over the bay as we enjoyed our dinner. Service was good, foot was ample and good, and the setting was superb. We only learned about this place this year, and we'll be back next.

Super fresh fish! Prices are excellent! You can sit in the restaurant which is open air or they have tables on the beach. Go later to watch the pirate ship fireworks at 9:30 and they have lounge chairs on the beach. Very romantic!

So yet another recommendation and boy we were in the right place! Al fresco dining with our feet literally in the sand (if you so choose). Fresh fish, tasty steak and a fried cheese appetizer (forget the name) that was to die for! Loved the...More

One enjoyable evening. My husband had the whole fried snapper and really enjoyed the fish. He felt it was worth trying it with a good Pinot Grigio and was not disappointed. The side dish of veggies and a few spoonfuls of rice was not much...More

They do not take reservations but the restaurant is quite large and they also serve dinner on the beach. If you go early enough, before 6:00 you may get a table. If not, you can try next door which looks less busy but they... More

I remember that our drinks were 2 for the price of one - BOGO. My hubby & I each had 2 huge daiquiris as a result. 👍 They were great!
