I had the filet toped with almonds in the crust. My wife had the stuffed flounder. All so good. However, for me was the appetizer of cajun boiled shrimp. Being from Louisiana, It does not get any better than this. I highly recommend this restaurant....More

There is everything to love about this place! You can dine indoors or on the deck. It's right no the bay so you have a beautiful view of the ocean. Every dish I have tried there has been delicious!
