Nice place to go for burgers and shrimp,good music. The place is busy, beer is good.A little hard to find, jewelery store in the front. Outside seats, worth the money.

We have visited the area numerous times as our in-laws live nearby. I have been there numerous times before but I was finally able to take my wife and kids to show them the great pizza and awesome atmosphere. We even got lucky and there was an awesome band playing good music that families and young kids could even enjoy.... More

We have been there in years past and enjoyed it, but things have changed! Ordered "grouper basket and "home made chips". I expected home made chips to be hot; were cold. Complained immediately. Waitress seemed to start to argue, but thought better, and said she'll bring others. Apparently the cook took other cold cooked chips and cooked them again. Waitress... More

I had the lunch special BBQ Ribs for $9 and wasn't at all dissatisfied! Ribs were fantastic but I loved the veg sides even more. Mac & Cheese, Green Beans, Zucchini, and a fourth I can't remember because I ate it up so quickly.
