We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it must be the area's best kept secret! Anyone in the area that enjoys exceptional food must stop by. It may be the best restaurant in all of Fort Pierce.

Any of the fish sandwiches are great. Prices are reasonable. Bit of a hidden location, you may have to look around for it. Lots of parking near by. Waitstaff is good and friendly. Worth a visit.

Blackened Mahi Mahi was perfect. My family enjoyed the diverse seafood selections including lobster bisque. My wife enjoyed the vegetable pasta which was awesome. I will be back.

Went here with friends.. once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch was good but dinner was fantastic! Try the mahi sliders for lunch. Cole slaw is fantastic. For dinner the lobster boil was amazing and so was the crab stuffed shrimp. Huge portions. Worth searching for! Our server was Glenn both times. He was excellent.
