This restaurant is average. Prices are little high and good was not that flavorful. I ate here because some friend raved about the place. I didn't not think it was great. The service was good but I had nothing that desired me to return. I don't recommend this restaurant but I believe it just did not have food I liked.... More

This restaurant is kind of like a "joint" but don't let that fool you! The food was spectacular! I had the snapper and my husband had seared tuna. I can tell you that it was every bit as delicious as a 5 star fancy restaurant. The prices are actually reasonable for the amount of food you get. Even the cole... More

Love the lobster BLT at great price points and the fried shrimp are excellent. Get there early around 11:30 as place fills up

We tried forever yesterday to find this restaurant. We spent 15 minutes and with the construction, no obvious sign or parking lot, we were unable to find it. I would suggest they invest in better signage. We really do want to try this place. HELP!

I have been to this place for lunch many times, but never for dinner. This small location was packed with people, and the food that kept coming out of the kitchen looked wonderful. We started with the bacon wrapped/crab stuffed jalapeno's and while they were good, we struggled to notice the crab. My wife order stuffed shrimp as her dinner,... More

Fairly good food but if you want a view there is nothing but a hot asphalt parking lot, very very noisy inside and if you sit outside the flies attack your food

Its hard to find. It looks shabby. However, the food is as good as any top dollar, luxury restaurant in florida. No kidding. If you are after the best possible sea food, fresh from the ocean daily, go here.

The size of this establishment and it's somewhat hidden location off the causeway is misleading. But don't be fooled. The food is fresh and exceptional. The prices are reasonable and the service is efficient. Locals patronize this restaurant year round so it is always busy year round. Portions are generous but space is limited. Be prepared to wait but it's... More

My wife and I had our Wednesday date lunch today. We were pleasantly greeted and seated outside, by our request. It was a beautiful day and not very crowded outside. Our server, Kassy, promptly came over and took our drink order. My wife ordered the Lobster Club Sandwich (delicious), and I tried the Blackened Mahi Sliders (also succulent). In addition,... More

A friend had recommended this place. We never would have found it on our own, nor would we have stayed had we just wandered in. BUT we ate on the deck and had a scrumptious lunch of shrimp and grits, house-made smoked fish dip and salad. The best ever!
