The wife loved the twin tails so much we came back and she had it again. My two visits consisted of the fish and chips and fried shrimp. Both were great. This place has taken over our go to spot which was Mar Vista.

Went there last night with 7 people. They wait wasn't too long even with a large party and we just had a drink at their bar while waiting. The food was great and so was the service. Great atmosphere too!

A quiet restaurant on quaint Longboat Key. The lobster bisque is amazing! Service is always friendly and there's not too often a long wait (outside of busy holiday periods).
