Best fried shrimp anywhere! VERY light batter, big, butterflied, tender. friendly staff, inside is noisey but they also offer seating on the outside deck. One of the best restaurants in the area hands down!

This place came highly recommended to us along with the expectation that we might have to wait quite awhile for a table but it would be worth it. We did have to wait, but we didn't have a problem having a drink or two at the bar. The wait was less than what we thought it would be and once... More

Despite living near this restaurant, we've never heard of it even though it's been around for 9 years. This is a fun place with fast service and a New York deli atmosphere. We liked it so much, we returned the following night and again the next week. The food quality is great as well as the preparation. They don't take... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it must be the area's best kept secret! Anyone in the area that enjoys exceptional food must stop by. It may be the best restaurant in all of Fort Pierce.

Any of the fish sandwiches are great. Prices are reasonable. Bit of a hidden location, you may have to look around for it. Lots of parking near by. Waitstaff is good and friendly. Worth a visit.

Blackened Mahi Mahi was perfect. My family enjoyed the diverse seafood selections including lobster bisque. My wife enjoyed the vegetable pasta which was awesome. I will be back.

Went here with friends.. once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch was good but dinner was fantastic! Try the mahi sliders for lunch. Cole slaw is fantastic. For dinner the lobster boil was amazing and so was the crab stuffed shrimp. Huge portions. Worth searching for! Our server was Glenn both times. He was excellent.

Thank Betsy D
