Happy Hour was great with some really amazing moonshine drinks. I could have been happy with just appetizers because they were delicious & filling. But dinner was amazing and mine was served in a bowl with a large amount of blue crab meat. I didn't...More

The alligator gumbo was packed with meat and tasty. Picture is of blistered shishito peppers & cauliflower. Drinks were hand crafted and delicious. Service was spot on and friendly. Everyone seemed happy to be working there. The upstairs view of the ocean is a bonus.

Over the top service from Brandon. Both of our meals were fantastic. The Swordfish with Risotto was over the top and the fried chicken was to die for. We will go back and take friends. Don't miss this one.
