My husband and I walked on the beach to Grape Tree Cafe and the food was delicious. My husband got the fried fish and I got the conch fritters and it was very yummy!

We were driving looking for the farmers market and found this little jem. We never did find the market but it didn’t matter. The service was great and the fish was perfect.

Really tasty fish fry, good for take-out or eating at the picnic tables on the beach. Street a bit noisy. Great value!

Don't know the hours but they are open only on weekends. It's like a food truck but is a permanent structure with a walkup window and picnic tables and is located on the beach.
