We'd dined here a few years ago. It's changed since our last visit. It's an active working seafood area with palettes of Fish Bait stacked up waiting to be loaded into trucks or in the freezer area near the restaurant. Be prepared for the smells...More

Great place to go for a no frills, basic fresh seafood meal. Simple but with that old Florida charm not easily found in this touristic area. Live bands on weekends are usually good too!

Wee stopped for a drink an ended up eating dinner too. We had the peel and eat shrimp that were good but not great. The live music kept us here. The cobia is fresh and lightly blackened is great

Living in the area, we like to do fresh. Stopped today and the server said the covinia was fresh. It stunk and she said the rest also smelled. Did not get a cook coming over but just ignored an issue. Would never go there again....More

Had friends from Wisconsin here to visit and the places I meant to take them had closed in anticipation of Irma. So, we decided to try Cortez Kitchen. The service was great, and 2 entrees were good (grouper rueben and kid's chicken fingers). I ordered...More
