We have visited this restaurant twice. Once in the bar, because the dining room was in the middle of a busy, busy dinner rush, and once at lunch. Both visits we were treated to delicious plates of oysters and red shrimp. Yumm.

Beautiful setting, loved the upstairs and view outside. Southern hospitality hands down! I really love that you can walk in downstairs, grab a drink at the bar, and walk upstairs to your seat. There is also a bar station upstairs 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
