Lively atmosphere with very friendly and prompt service. We had fried shrimp and grilled trout as entrees. For appetizer had calamari. All were very good. Nice portions.

“Outstanding food & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

I love this little restaurant. They post the fresh catch dishes on a chalk board and the food servers always take the time to describe any dish you want to know more about. Wednesday is Oyster Nachos on special for just $5. They are my favorite appetizer around! The service is friendly and thorough. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. It is very family friendly.

They spice up the corn and grill it. Absolutely tasty, I was impressed. The grilled salmon was also good.

“Good first impression!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

This restaurant has an excellent choice of foods including a completely separate gluten-free menu ( great for my daughter) and a decent section of "non-swimming food" for landlubbers. I had a cup of their gumbo. Delicioso! Dark, fragrant roux, not too much spice and very satisfying both in taste and quantity. I also had the shrimp po-boy sandwich and it was also quite good with perfectly sauteed shrimp and a garlic aoli dressing. My wife had clam chowder which for Lakeland was the BEST we have ever had here being topped only by the chowder we get in Portsmouth, NH. They also serve a "roasted jalapeno pepper soup" which my daughter had, and I sampled, and it was surprisingly mild and quite tasty. Granddaughter had red beans and rice with Andouille sausage and it was fabulous; she ate it all.Server seemed a little perplexed at times and food was not delivered to everyone at table at same time so a little improvement there needs to happen but it was busy and she was obviously stressed. Four people in party and we were out the door at $58.76 plus tip! I also like the idea that this restaurant supports local charitable causes on the first Tuesday of every month with a portion of their evenings proceeds going to that charity. I applaud and support them for extending a helping hand to the locals and making it a continuous and ongoing activity for them!
