The oyster appetizer was delicious. Lightly breaded so as to enjoy the oyster taste. Also had grouper which was grilled to perfection. Scallops were also very tender and good quality. Coconut shrimp was good . It is casual dining. Great place for seafood.

Fun beachy atmosphere, great service, interesting beach food themes, I'd go back again! It gets really crowded but it's surprisingly large inside. I loved the 3 types of shrimp dish I got, all the food is homemade and the key lime dessert is tiny, cute...More

Awesome seafood shack with great selections and service. Beer battered shrimp, oysters and fish are outstanding. Also try the fish tacos. We were a party of 8 and no one was disappointed.
