Food is ok but the place is so old and out dated. The front of the house looks so bad you are thinking how bad is the back of the house. Lots of seafood in Jacksonville will go some place a little more up dated.

I expect something a little more from a seafood restaurant in Florida. The food was bad. The service was slow and not very good. Old and rough looking inside. Very disappointed.
