This place is listed and rated well but when we went there it was closed and had been for months. Too bad because we wanted to try it.

We had an evening meal here. The food was good. I had a shrimp burrito, way too big for me! My husband loved his chicken salad. The craft beer was excellent. Only downside, it was quite dark where we sat.

This is a homey southern atmosphere restaurant with a great large wraparound deck that overlooks the lagoon. Food is great and atmosphere is second to none

the food is outstanding! It's really small but you can eat outdoors too. We LOVED this place almost didn't know it was there, it was tucked away off the main road. Highly recommend eating here!
