Had the Captain's Choice. Fried shrimp was good. The fish fillets were vert thin . . . Tasted more breading than fish. Gumbo was average. Service was fast . . . But it is September so the island is empty.

One of the few places that has a happy hour on a Sunday and it starts at 11 am. We had drinks and appetizers. The calamari, crab cake sliders and shrimp kisses were all outstanding. The service was awesome too.

I believe you have to go through the restaurant to get to patio. With that I don't think they would allow. Unless it is a service dog.

Not to my knowledge and we have been there numerous times in all seasons and all kinds of weather. We have never seen even a "purse" sized dog.
