Just found it while passing through town but glad we did because they had great crab cakes. Yummy!! If I was in town, I'd go here again for fresh seafood.

We stopped over for lunch via boat from the Gulf. We were sat down immediately and offered to sit anywhere we wanted. The service was wonderful. The views are nice, with Monkey Island right there as well. I had blackened scallops for lunch and it...More
