Fresh fish of the day blackened on a fresh roll with fresh lettuce and just a bit of awesome sauce. Stopped in here for a beer on the way south from Amelia island. Awesome!

Good service, friendly cook, interesting choices. The food was good, glad we ate there once, don't think we'd return. Little things, only a couple of crackers for the smoked fish dip, very little sauce with my blackened fish sandwich. The flavors were good though.
