Love how chilled out this restaurant is. Food on plastic trays or in baskets and beautifully flavoursome. The raw and cooked oysters were great, plus the conch fritters in lime sauce and the shrimp and avocado tacos were sensational. Everything delicious and highly recommended! Plus...More

Fish taco was memorable and crab soup was terrific. You order at the counter and they deliver it to you. Inside or outside seating and husband could "bird" while waiting for food. Delightful. We could taste the micro brews before ordering.

Great local eatery with an eclectic menu (alligator tacos) and beautiful view of the river. Good selection of local craft beers, too. Friendly service, lots to choose from, very relaxed and good eats. Try it, you'll like it!
