The BBQ Chicken Flatbread and Guacamole was delicious! Would recommend for a quiet lunch on the patio.

Great meal in a casual setting. Has both indoor and outdoor seating available. Lobster ravioli and bruschetta appetizers were light and tasty. BBQ shrimp dish, Voodoo chicken and Macadamia crusted mahi mahi were fresh and delightful. Wait staff was very attentive.

We had a delightful experience for our Friday night date night... Seafood was really fresh, service was attentive, atmosphere was very casual, relaxed, and friendly. We ate on the outside porch which was a really charming setting. Corn and crab chowder is a must have.

We had a really good meal. There was a large portion of backfin crab meat on my salad. Menu offers a wide variety at reasonable prices. Wine by the glass is a generous pour. Very friendly staff. A Gulfport must visit restaurant.

I don't know if this place changed hands or what . But it was my first time here this season and in my opinion it's not quite the same. I have always bragged about how good their crab cakes were and I was very disappointed...More

My husband and I had dinner here twice, both times outdoors on the quiet covered patio. Casual restaurant with great food, good service, and friendly staff. Memorable dishes were Backfin salad with lump crabmeat and shrimp, prime rib, crabcakes, and mahi-scallop combo, all reasonably priced....More

When a restaurant gets recommended by employees of another unrelated restaurant, you know you have to try it so we did! From the outside, it looks small but there are plenty of tables inside and out. Now to the food — GREAT! Service - GREAT!...More
