Took my son and his family here for a birthday lunch/dinner. Even late in the afternoon, it was crowded. The gulf fish (red snapper) was wonderful fried and grilled.

This restaurant was great. not too expensive, wonderful service, great mixed drinks and delicious food. They will cook your fresh catch anyway you want...grilled, fried or blackened. Salad bar was varied and included soup. Hush puppies very tasty. Their homemade tartar and seafood sauce was so good, we took some to go with our leftovers!

long wait to be seated, waited almost an hour for our food to come out... to then be told they ran out of fries, onion rings and much more. The salad bar and shrimp was good.
