What a great find! Locals recommended this place and we loved it so much for dinner that we went back for lunch, only being in the area for a few days. The crab chowder and clam chowder were chock full of seafood with a wonderful creamy broth. Their jambalaya was way better than I've had in New Orleans! Tons of tiny pieces of sausage, chicken and shrimp (more sausage and shrimp than chicken, which indicates how they focus on the tasty ingredients instead of the "filler" chicken), lots of little chunks of veggies and the sauce was more brown, like gumbo's roux, than tomato-y - seemed much more authentic than I've had elsewhere. The flavor was the most special thing about it. Husband had grouper sandwich with his chowder, and it was also delicious and fresh. Great meal!

Everything about our visit here was wonderful! Great service, amazing food, huge portions and a beautiful view while you eat!!! What more can you ask for?!
Now, this wasn't the fanciest restaurant I've ever been to... everything is served on disposable dishware {but if that's not important to you} you are in for a treat, and you will not be disappointed! We will definitely be back!! 5 stars for this local gem!!!

Fair food and prices. The place smelled very fish and was not very comfortable. Nothing outstanding just OK

this was within walking distance to our motel, King Bay Inn. We had a large serving of stone crab that were very meaty and hot. Very laid back place. Shorts, flip flops etc. Right on the Gulf.

Basic "ambience" waterfront right where the fresh claws, blue crabs etc come in on the boat. Claws are awesome, get the larger ones. Sides are OK but not what you come here for, it's all about the claws!
