We had a enjoyable lunch with friends. Service was excellent and food was promptly delivered. Lots of interesting grouper items. The blood orange scallops with ozo was absolutely delicious. Parking was adequate.

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
