By far THE BEST FOOD in the Palatka/Satsuma/Welaka/Crescent City area. Great outdoor tiki bar with full menu offered.

We were there on 7/22/17. From the time we arrived the owner, bartenders, servers,(especially Susan) were very friendly. They made everyone feel like home away from home. The food was tasty and very good. We had a great time. I'll definitely be back soon. Vince...More

Excellent food and great service. A very Family restaurant. Their A/C needs to work better. And the floors need improvement

We got there at 7:30 & at 9:00 we still hadn't gotten our food. Can't believe a place this close to the river doesn't serve local shrimp & fish. They serve shrimp from Peru get real!!! We were very disappointed. Will never go back

Not what I was expecting from people I talked to. Overall I'd just say it's Average. I got the House Specialty "Lump Crab Cake" (being from MD I guess I expect TOO much for a crab cake). Just one question "Where's the Lump meat"??? It...More

Good value for the price. Never had a bad dish here. The servce however is very inconsistent. Sometimes we have great service, other times service is slow, and we feel we are an INCONVENIENCE for the wait staff.

Thank you for review. We take all comments seriously. I had a meeting with all employees and re-emphasised the importance of customer service. We look forward to seeing you back again.

Thank you for your comments on the shrimp poboy and the dinner. The majority of our customers visit Shrimps because of our shrimp specials - either fried, grilled, Blackened or steamed. We have a good reputation near and far and will strive to ensure our...More

With 300 + people I don't see it as a safe environment for pets. There is a massive parking lot though, does the dog need to sit with you? I guess if you got a table on the outside of pavilion it would be OK.
