We always buy seafood from Buddys when we are on vacation. Although not inexpensive, it is always fresh and tasty when cooked and the employees are awesome.

Seafood is so dependent on supply and demand. In the Summer there are lots of visitors so the prices tend to be higher on popular items like shrimp and oysters.
