We were told they had the best seafood around and to be there before they opened or we would be waiting. The fish we ordered was good but a little greasy. We would probably go again.

The service was terrible. I would tell you about the food, but we were never served. After waiting 45 minutes for drinks, we left. Have not been back and will never go back.More

Freshest seafood in the state. Amazing fish specials that rotate every week. You might wait an hour on the weekend for a table, but it is well worth it.

Nice place, reminded me of the Florida of my youth. Very friendly service, had the grouper fingers and cheese grits which were both very good. Even better because isn't a cookie cutter chain.
