This place is OK, I think the others that left great reviews hit the place on a good day or we hit it on a bad day. Have had much better seafood, also did not get much for the $$$$.

This is a real gem that the locals know about and enjoy; a truly wonderful place. GREAT seafood, if you like deep fried seafood.

This restaurant has fresh, made to order seafood. Don't expect anything fancy as they only have picnic benches under cover, but it is good food. Try the soft shell crabs!!! They are only open I think on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Do not go when raining or right after......lots of mud, puddles and mud! Lots of locals.....why heat up the kitchen when you can get your fish here. Large portions, decent sides. Outside seating only, close to Sun City Center.
