We stopped in on our way home for a late lunch on our way home after a weekend in the Keys. Almost every table needed to be cleaned off, so they gave us the only open one. It turned out to be right next to the bathrooms, we could literally see everyone go in and come out, and the door didn't close all the way behind each person... so we asked them to clean off another and we moved. Once we settled at a better table, we thoroughly enjoyed this place! The shrimp and grits was amazing! We heard several others order too and everyone raved about it. We also had a lunch special, a tilapia wrap that we delicious too. Kids loved the paper tablecloth that they could write on and we found the kids menu had plenty of options for them too.
The only negative was the seating on top of the bathroom.... other than that we loved it! We'll pick a better table next time we go back.

We went for happy hour at the recommendation of a local. They were out of the oysters which is exactly what we wanted. Bartender was very friendly. Ordered shrimp with bacon and conch fritters. They were good. No water view.

My my was it yummy. Just delivered and on the grill for us. Can't get too much fresher. Not a touristy place thankfully. Prices were great. Morgan was a kind young lady with excellent customer service skills.

We will be driving all the way back just to eat at this down to earth fresh seafood spot.

Stopped here on my way back to the main land fro Key West. The Shrimp and Grits were doused in sauce but still delicious. The shrimp were plentiful and cooked perfectly. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The price wasn't to bad either.

The food and service here was brilliant! We had shrimp with key lime butter on angel hair pasta and the Morgan Salad, which consisted of strawberries, mandarin orange, blue cheese (although we opted for feta instead), caramelised pecan and topped with a raspberry dressing. Staff were really friendly too. If you are travelling through Islamorada, watch out as the building doesn't really have kerbside appeal and you could miss it.
