Went for dinner after getting a recommendation from a neighbor of friends we were visiting. Definitely not what we were expecting when we pulled up... SO glad we gave it a try. It was delicious!!! Very casual!

Decent food, I don’t usually like fish because of the fishy smell, but this grilled fish was amazing, it had absolutely zero fish taste of smell. I highly recommend the grilled fish and shrimp.

Excellent. You order at a window, get your food and find a table. You go there for expertly fried or broiled fish ( I had fried mullet) and my wife had a seafood platter with boiled fish, fried oysters and seasoned shrimp. They do take...More

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
