We had a great meal here. When we walked in, we were starving and so we panicked little because it was packed and there was a wait for a table. However, as we found out, you can order dinner at the bar. Everything we had...More

Deliciousness!! I had a marvelous yellowtail dinner with a lovely lime sauce. Husband dined on the appetizer menu with oysters, fish dip and conch. Finished with the best piece of key lime pie we have ever eaten.

Very pleasant waitress, atmosphere is extremely casual, nothing fancy. Surf and turf was cooked well, stuffing a bit bland. Hogfish Picatta was excellent!! Great picatta sauce, flavorful and fresh. Conch fritters weren't really fritters, more like extruded dough, lacking flavor. Crab legs were good.

We enjoyed our meal here. The pretzel bread with pepper jelly was truly my favorite part. I ordered the Cast Iron Mahi which was very filling. I would classify it as more of a fish stew since it was served in a personal sized skillet...More
