We ate here last month. We were in town the night before our cruise. I was disappointed. I did not expect fancy- and it was not. I did expect really good seafood- and it was not. I had grilled jumbo shrimp. They were slightly under...More

This restaurant is fantastic! The seafood does not get fresher than this! I highly recommend the blackened Mahi Mahi. Oh, and don't forget to order the Conch Fritters!

Definitely wasn't the worst place that I've eaten but wasn't my tops either. So many positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try. What a disappointment! Food presentation is non-existent, plastic containers for all the dips and dressing, crackers in a bowl and fish...More

We found this little seafood restaurant by asking our Uber driver where to go. If you are looking for a place where the locals go, this is the place. I suggest the mahi mahi or not he grouper. Both were very good. The conch fritters...More
