Love the oysters! The Mahi sandwich is delicious, too! Always seem to have great music there. The outside decks are a good option if you want the music to be in the background.

We always stop by here when we are in town, best place to eat in the area. Prices are good, food is great . Get anything blackened, we get redfish. We always sit outside or in the bar area.

Didn't enjoy this place with the kids, a lot of foul language being thrown around by patrons and staff did nothing. Went again with friends for drinks, it was ok, service was very slow but there seemed to be only one waitress so under staffed.
