Just a small restaurant located near A1A Bridge, but the food is outstanding. Start with the bowl of Clam Chowder. Then just about any seafood entree is large and good. I usually have the local fish of the day sandwich and they come from mahi-mahi,...More

I don't think they take reservations. Sometime there is a wait and sometimes not. It is worth the wait.
