This is my have-to-go place when we visit Gainesville. I love the atmosphere on the porch area. My favorite things to order are King Crab Legs and the Low Country Boil served in a bucket for 2.

We got the boil with crab shrimp and added sausage for $5. We ordered the medium old bay seasoning, which seemed to be sprinkled on dry. We had lots of meat. I would have liked a little bigger pieces of corn on the cob and more potatoes. But we enjoyed the food and eating on the porch. It wasn't too... More

My party ordered three fish dishes and they all were good but not great. Portions could be improved as one piece of fish (grouper) was small. The service was questionable because my water glass stayed empty halfway through eating until the conclusion of the meal. Atmosphere was okay but we tended to be loud inside. I wish we would have...

Stop here when traveling with your pup for a terrific brunch or lunch. Terrific Mahi Taco blacked to perfection for husband. Fries were handmade and ready to steal. Sesame crusted wahoo and smoked tuna dip were enjoyable and served with a smile. Our little guy was offered water and treated well. We felt very relaxed and comfortable on the pretty... More

🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟 The food was awesome. We had traveled to New Orleans from Cocoa, FL and stopped by here on the way back home. Reviews were great on Trip Advisor and the 5+ Billboards on I75 south convinced us to check it out. I had been wanting "real Fresh fish" for days. The Crab Bisque appetizer was the best I ever...

We were seated right away, the waitress Kim was very personable. The crab bisque was really very tasty as were the oysters on the half shell. The shrimp seemed fresh. My preference would have been for the cheese grits to be just a bit creamier, but still tasted pretty good.

Boom boom shrimp was suggested by our waitress. It was better than most. Wahoo Roll was good as well. Crab BLT needs more Bacon but both enjoyed the sandwich. Kids shrimp and FF was kind of rubbery but good flavor. My fried shrimp was good but greasy. The collards were very gritty so I could not eat them. Kale salad... More

I've eaten here a few times with good results. The service and atmosphere at the bar has been spot on. The menu offers a little of everything, with some fresh fish options daily. Of course there's grouper, but at times there's other choices; such as yellowtail snapper, which is off the charts. The collard greens are good too. Oh, and... More
