“If you are in a hurry don't visit this place!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Went with a Living Social deal and left without eating. The place was super busy but to have to wait 45 min used to then be told that your hamburger hasn't even been started was the last straw. Our appetizer was disgusting and I had to walk inside to get my own silverware. Walked out hungry and will never be back.

“Amazing & Reasonable”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

My wife and I both enjoyed the Grouper Nugget Po Boy, which turned out to be a generous serving of very well prepared Grouper Nuggets, lots of chopped lettuce and tomato on top of a nice slice of provolone. . .on a Po Boy bun. It was served with a side so bride chose sweet potato fries and I went for the house made coleslaw, both of which turned out to be among the best we've ever had. The fries were drizzled with a bit of honey which added to the flavor. it was so big she had to take 1/2 the sandwich home along with an ala carte pint which is available for take out and an extra order of the fries to take and reheat for dinner the next night at home. We finished the meal off with a very good Key Lime Pie, served with a nice dollop of real whipped cream. A 40-mile trek for us, but we'll do it again or whenever in the area. Our server, Lori was very helpful with selections and made our visit memorable. Hopefully our next visit will be a day without rain and chill so we can sit by the water on the patio.

“Portions are huge!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

I went with a friend a couple of nights ago, it was a little cold so we sat inside. It bummed me out, because of the waterfront seating. But it was a nice relaxed atmosphere and our server, Liz, made us comfortable. I got the fish n chips and it was more than I could eat. Not to mention they have checkers fries!

“This could become our hang out”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Tucked away you could easily miss this place. We happen to spot it while driving somewhere else but said we need to try the place. Glad we did. It was chilly so we had to sit inside. We will be back to enjoy the patio. The food was good and the drinks were cheap. The waitress was buy but good. We left just as the music started but it sounded good. Nice to know they have music on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Reviewed 12 January 2014

Food was good and has greatly improved over the past few months. Music on the weekends is great and the atmosphere is fun. Service is good and the bartenders fun.
