On the outside, from the main road, it looks like a small shack - in fact if I hadn't been looking for it, I would have missed it. But there is plenty of seating inside and even more outside on a split level outside deck...More

Neat indoor/outdoor place on the intracoastal waterway. Came in for lunch and ordered oysters, shrimp and clams. All very good and the frozen drinks better. Nice service and well worth the visit.

Enjoyed sitting outside but it was rather chilly by the water. The staff did have blankets when we asked. That helped. Up with metal chairs I can imagine cold in cold and hot on a hot day. We had a large party of 9 so...More

I've been there twice, only to hear a lady yelling at staff, actually cussing. How unprofessional. Manager perhaps? Why is this ok? I certainly will be warning my friends and neighbors. Most waitresses were awesome. A pregnant girl waS very rude and bothered to do her job. This isn't a cheap place to eat, why are these two people cheap and TACKY. Waited forever for food to be cooked.
