The food was tasty and the place has a good "locals" feel to it. It is tucked away in the back. Get to sit and watch local fisherman clean their catch and feed begging pelicans.

I doubt that seafood gets any fresher, since the boats pull up to the back door and unload their catches! It's a fun, outdoor atmosphere with great seafood. It's extremely casual waterfront dining, with a walk-up window, paper and plastic ware and dock-side dining. The new covered outdoor area will be great for the rainy season. Sometimes there's a live... More

We're locals and decided to go out of our our waterfront lunch norm and try this place out. We had the shrimp tacos and triggerfish basket and I thought it was excellent. The atmosphere was great too. The only thing that really put a damper on the day was we wanted to have stone crabs; so we went to the... More

Awesome! This place was recommended by a local and it lived up to and beyond expectations. We were told this is where the little Cala buy their fresh seafood. It's half market and half marina-view dining. Rustic and clean. You order at the window and seat yourself. Prices were reasonable (cheaper than the other restaurants) and just as good. We... More

My wife and I I stopped in and we were not dissapointed. I had the shrimp tacos and they were some of the best I have ever eaten. My wife had the Hogfish and raved about it. You would be hard pressed to find fresher fish as it is also a fish market. The atmosphere is simply being a tent... More

Nothing fancy and a bit hard to find but fresh and delicious fish right off the boat. You can have your fish cooked to order or take it home. Either way it is just good fish, crab or shrimp.

Cuban Mahi sandwich is excellent. Upgrade to sweet potato fries , they are worth it. The fish platters are a good deal if you want more than a sandwich. Either are very filling.

Great food and fresh. Went there is 2015 and drove back there is 2017 just to enjoy this great food. Outside seating on the marina is a relaxing backdrop for this place. Really worth checking out.
