Delightful restaurant, beautiful bar with a friendly atmosphere. Opens for a short week after thanksgiving. Wednesday through Saturday I think. Spouse had grilled shrimp and was very happy.

My husband had the shrimp and filet. I had the fish and fries. We also got salads with our meal and they tasted very good. The south doesn't usually have French dressing, so that is a bummer, but the honey mustard was good.

Wonderful, professional and friendly staff. The food is one of the best in the inlet. There is also a gazebo in back for drinks by the water and often has wonderful bands.

Paul our server was very attentive and fun to talk with. My swordfish was good. My wife had chicken wth gravy which she liked. We really liked the home made key lime pie. The restaurant is not fancy and the dress code is casual.

Why do people go to seafood buffets? The food is less than average but made up for by the HUGE quantity! Go to a restaurant such as this one and get REALLY GOOD seafood, great service, good atmosphere all at a reasonable price. Really well done.

Have visited several times, and have brought friends and family with us when they've come to visit. Lobster Pot Pie is definitely a favorite, although we have had other entrées with excellent outcome. Bartender makes a great Kentucky Mule.

We tried this on the recommendation of friends and it was so good we ate there twice! Had the grouper and the fish & chips, both very good - perfectly cooked. My wife, not into seafood, had the Chicken fried chicken - WOW! Finding the Hot Fish Club was a highlight of our trip.
