We stopped in at the invitation of a charming young man making the rounds in his boat. We're so glad we did! Joan's meat patties were light, crispy and flavorful. Definitely the best we have ever tasted. Can't wait to return.........

Young man showed up at our boat about 830 am. Selling fresh made pates(sic). A pastry filled with great fresh fish!! Excellent! Almost like room service. Visit them in Grand Harbor! A must stop for our next trip.
