Bar type environment with excellent sea food choices. TVs play watersports rather than the big game. Different than either bar or fish places. Good service and moderate prices.

your menu is too expensive and the portions are small. I don't want to spend $5.50 for fries with a little sauce. $14.00 for a salad, no fries with the burger because the fries are so expensive. I'm sorry but your a beach restaurant not a 4 star.

Not only do you have the atmosphere of the beach lifestyle, but the food is excellent and the service terrific. They don't serve your typical hamburger and fries, but all of their food is an upgraded version. The people that make the food aren't cooks, but chefs; and at a reasonable price.

We usually order the Salt Life Bowls with either chicken or shrimp and are always satisfied. The fish in the tank are beautiful!

I love this place! Casual, on the water and fresh from the boat seafood. Prices are very reasonable. There is both inside and on the deck seating. I loved the blackened shrimp. Actually I loved everything I had there.
