“Fair Variety, good friendly service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

I have been here several times and found what I wanted and enjoyed myself. These were always a small parties. For larger parties, they have a room and this is an excellent place for moderate groups to get together and have fun and food and drink and plenty of space to enjoy it all. Add good service and a pleasant view, good atmosphere, great food and you and your friends will have an evening to remember!

“Brunch was decent, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

I went here with a large group for brunch. The menu was very limited. Our food came out a few dishes at a time, to the point that some of us had finished eating before the others got their food. If we had waited until all were served, ours would have been cold. Our server informed us that despite our large group reservation, there was only one cook, so he couldn't get it all out at once. Belgian Waffle "with berries" had precisely 3 thin slices of strawberry on it -- disappointing, especially for the price. Another diner at our table did enjoy the Eggs Benedict and said the asparagus was well cooked. Breakfast for 5 (one child and four adults, no alcoholic beverages) was $56 plus tip. This breakfast did not live up to its price tag. I have had better experiences here in the past with brunch. Maybe they were having an exceptionally bad day?

“Crab claws special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

We have been here a couple of times. This place has great sea food. I would really like to come in a boat , dock it and have a hearty meal. Crab claws are the best of the kind here. Right spices rightly fried. The blackened shrimp platter is a yum ! Ambience is very friendly, u can chose to sit by the water or stay inside cold free, food and service stays warm. So far our favorite sea food place in mobile/Spanish fort. ! Will always come back !

“Great spot for some fun seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

We came here, not knowing what to expect as we were out of towners. There wasn't a wait, the server was very nice. We had typical fried seafood ( including gator bites ) but it was all very good. I had crab cakes as well and the sauce was nice. Overall a very nice dinner.

“Happy place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

This is a great place to hang out with friends and have some drinks. Staff is very friendly. Everyone seems to be having a good time. Live bands are a real plus. Food is ok for the kind of place it is. Pool tables outside are a lot of fun
