The food was delicious and came with ample amount of food. If you aren't too hungry, you could share. The ribeye and fried okra were amazing. I highly recommend the alligator bites too! Big groups will likely have to sit outside.

Excellent Jambalaya and local beer that our waiter had suggested! Food was fresh and really tasty. The outside seating area was great with umbrellas to shade you from the sun. Compared to New York prices-- I was shocked that it was under 30 dollars!!

The shrimp was okay, although fewer and more expensive than other island places. The fries were completely limp. Hushpuppies had a funny taste about them. Iced tea was very good. Caitlin, the server, was excellent. Most of the fish was frozen. I would skip this place. Bill was $15 plus tip for 1
