Sat outside with friends in the heat and had a great time. Had the chowder to start and then the shrimp tacos and then the BEST key lime pie I’ve ever had in my life! Would defiantly return! Thank you

Call them. Not "fine dining" but great food, excellent service and a quintessential FL atmosphere. If they are open, I reommend the fish tacos with papaya pico de gallo. Happy Easter!
