We arrived later and just managed to get a table. The baby octopus was superb. Would go back again, lots of local people eating there.

Specifically I had the swordfish, but we had 12 people, got right in when they opened at 5 pm (we had a reservation), ordered quickly and were into excellent meals all around by 5:30-5:45. Not a lot of tables, so if you make a later reservation you may have to wait as people will tend to hang around to savor... More

Offered a great selection of fish and way to prepare it. The surface in the fish was a little bland but the dish was tasty. I had the mahi mahi that was almond crusted. Would always recommend getting reservations. Go in the early side for the quiet conversation

Best get there early because they get busy. Love the oak flavor smoke you can have on your fish dishes. Service very very good. Can't wait to come back.

Recommended by the Visitor's Center when I asked for a restaurant that the locals went to. I wanted to stay away from the tourists. I wasn't able to make a reservation and had to wait 45 minutes for a table. Worth the wait.

Tried to make a reservation, but it wasn't going to happen for the day we wanted. So we ordered to go! This is a great option if you want to try this restaurant. We ordered a few meals to share and all items were really good and the time given for our order was spot on(15-20 minutes)! In the order... More

My husband and I arrived for dinner on Sunday night at 8:00 pm. We heard about the long wait times and thought Sunday at 8 pm might not be that bad...it wasn't. It was 45 minutes before we were seated, but we noticed a number of people with reservations still had to wait a fair amount of time (one couple... More

For me this restaurant was definitely a mixed bag. First the good to great news: The seafood is mostly excellent, some good. The service was terrific and that says alot because the place was packed to overflowing. And the prices were great, much less than I expected. Now to the not-so-good: 4 of us were here for a Friday dinner... More

This tiny sweet restaurant was quite a suprise! Food was excellent and people were outside in a rain standing in line for getting in. It was worth it!
