We ate here twice during our visit. The $2 peel and eat shrimp was fabulous. We did get a few extras, salads, sandwiches and they were all really good. A good place to go.

I eat here every time I go to the keys. The staff is friendly, the food has always been great, and the drinks are good. The prices are fair, the atmosphere is excellent. I like to sit outside and enjoy the live music.

The food was okay. The honeybuns are delicious- an unexpected treat. The fried shrimp was good. Our other entrees were "so-so".

Wife and son liked the shrimp scampi. Stuffed mahi with lobster sauce was also tasty. Oldest son liked the sushi. Had quite a few craft beers on tap so that's a bonus if you like craft beer.

We found this off trip advisor and decided to give it a try. We were very pleased with the service, our waitress was very sweet, and the food was pretty good. Skip the alligator tail tho.

How can anything so dingy be so pricey? Is that a cat? Hope its not a rat. This place is in the area where the real fisherman come and go. Just for finding it you deserve a drink. Have a drink at the bar and meet the owner; he and his wife are fun to talk to. If you have... More

a great hidden little spot...could look a bit sketchy as you drive the back roads, it's all okay. The food was really good...a nice local find.

Excellent service, great food. A rustic interior (it's an old place) provides lots of interesting things to look at. Our 4 year old was suitably entertained. There are boats moored up outside as well. They also have a great range of craft beers. Their own beer, called Bella, was especially nice. It's not 'fine dining', it's casual and friendly. We...

We found this restaurant solely because we used google maps to find one and decided to try it. It's a rather large, hidden away place that we never would have known about otherwise. The atmosphere was great. We are there late, around 9 pm and it was still hopping. We ordered the hogfish and it was to die for. They... More
