We eat here twice a month. It gets super busy in the tourist season. It is fresh, cheap, and tasty! I love the grilled zucchini and colossal shrimp!

There will be a wait but it is well worth it. If you are a seafood fan, this is a must stop. The hush puppies were to die for, the fried shrimp delicious and the fried onions yummy.

My husband had the.deep fried shrimp and I had the grilled shrimp. Both were delicious with two large side.portions. My husband's only complaint was he has had better gumbo elsewhere. Small but worth a visit.

Excellent food at reasonable prices. We ate inside (not a lot of space) but also has a drive up window. The sampler platter (oysters, fried shrimp, catch of the day) was $16 and enough to share. Kids portions were good size ($7). All of us...More

This place is small and crowded, because it is good. unfortunately the lines can be long, but do move pretty fast. Fried seafood is their specialty at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is kinda "diveish" but it works.

This is my favorite local seafood place. No frills, just good food for a fair price. Super casual order at the window style dining.

We found this cool place on an internet search. Food was good. Crowded and line out the door. I had ordered grilled and received fired. I really had my taste buds on grilled.

A great little spot for dinner. Not fancy, just good! The grilled snapper and fried shrimp were good. The kids chicken was also good. No complaints. As expected and rated by other. Solid 5 star effort.

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
