Our first visit . Several people have recommended we eat here. We are new to the area and after a year finally decided to give it a try. Started with volcano shrimp appetizer over coleslaw , followed by small salad $2.00 with homemade dressing. The orange vinaigrette was amazing. Husband had the red fish, black beans and rice and I had tropical tilapia with rice and lime sauce. Also , server brought warm mini herb biscuits with salad. We loved the casual atmosphere. Our waiter , Michael M. ,was prompt and knowledgable about menu. He knew to bring husband 2 homemade blue cheese dressings without asking. No room for dessert .. But peanut butter pie was recommended and I am sure it would have been good. Next time no appetizer as the portions were very large. Also, we visited on July 4! Glad they were open. Waiter said they are open 365 days a year!!!!

Did not enjoy my first experience there at all. Servers were indifferent and couldn't be bothered with a smile. Food was greasy, fish underdone, fries clumped together in one heap. Would not go back. Also kind of dirty and old inside.

Was an outstanding meal. Gator bites were the best any of us had ever had. Smoked fish dip equally as good. Shrimp and Grits are excellent.

Be for warned; they are a " beer and wine only" eatery.

Heard about this through friends. Excellent service, great fresh seafood, reasonably priced, and funky low key atmosphere.
