Great sea food,excellent servers,but you must get there early like 4:30p.m. because the lines are long and it is very popular both with all the locals and the many snow birds.Oh and the price is right and the beers are nice and cold to go with that great seafood.

Came here to try the award winning chowder. It was ok. We have had many, many that are better. The place is a bit run down. Service was good. Decided not to stay and linger.

Clam chowder, chilli beef soup, Mahi Mahi tacos: all still good and tasty. They do our fave Bud in aluminum bottles so we do the long walk along the beach and stop off here for lunch/a drink several times during our 2 week holiday, it's a great place.

Came for the clam chowder, its good, not too thick, loaded with clams. Had a half order of fish & chips, good not great, not a lot of breading, but with cornmeal. Low key place on the afternoon.

So we go here because my best friend loves chowder and seafood. She raves about the "Award winning chowder". I being a non- seafood lover am less impressed because there's only a few things on the menu to choose from for me. The kids are always happy because they get a free frisbee and can't go wrong with chicken nuggets.... More

I'm not sure how many locations they have but we ate at the one on Siesta Key. Their chowder is really good. My husband also had the raw oysters, he thought they were a little small but still good. We actually ate here twice b/c it was really close to our hotel. The first time we ate in the back... More
