For a themed restaurant it is great. The fried shrimp is always good with an ear of hot corn on the cob. Don’t forget the crab boils if you like a pot of everything. Next to the lifeguard station and the four point hotel. Both...More

Our waitress was wonderful, the atmosphere is nice, what you’d expect. The service was fast and efficient. The food was “good enough” but overpriced in my opinion. Our bill was 135.00 for 4 people, but I knew it would be high going in. Not complaining,...More

We decided to have our dinner at the open-air bar, enjoying the gentle sea breeze and the last rays of the Florida sunshine. Never having eaten crab, I warned that it was hard work. We ordered the Alaska Snow Crab and the bartender offered to...More
