Music on the patio, quirky decor and great seafood! Gumbo, fish tacos, chicken alfredo AND great burgers! Reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Short wait time and easy access to the beach.

The fried pickles were good to start off. The grilled grouper with etouffee sauce on top with delicious! Highly recommend it. The mahi-mahi grilled fish was also very good. The sauce was spicy as described on the menu. Good service and a very casual atmosphere....More
