I have been looking for a decent seafood place in tally since I moved here from Louisiana two years ago, and this place did not disappoint. Fairly priced, at least for the lunch menu, and great service.

We were passing through and saw Crystal River so we stopped in. The food was reasonably priced, prepared well and was very tasty. I would definitely stop again.
