The food here was so good we drove 40 minutes out of the way on two separate occasions. We had the popcorn shrimp, lava shrimp, calamari, coconut shrimp, and corn dog. Drinks are available at the grocery store next door. This place is so very good and beautiful views of the ocean.

Great food, very friendly service, not too busy when we were there. Everything we had was great, including the crab cakes, surf & surf (shrimp & ahi fish) and coconut shrimp. Best was probably the surf & surf with medium hot sauce 😋

Everything looked great and we loved the Canadian flag. It looked as though there were good reviews however when we sat down to eat our garlic shrimp they hadn't been cleaned. We spent our time cleaning the poop out of them. Too bad they looked good.

We had the Lava garlic shrimp and it was delicious. Tasted very fresh. Cash only but there is an ATM inside the shop next to it.

If you're ever on the drive you gotta swing... More

Food was great. I had Surf and Surf and cooked to perfection with no batter. My husband had the shrimp and steak, steak was medium rare more on rare side just how we like it. Highly recommend to pay a visit.

We rented a car for a drive around the island. This was one place we wanted to eat at. I was not disappointed. I got the coconut shrimp and a cold Primo from the store next door. The workers were very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

After swimming in the ocean just try to find some local food for lunch , and found this small Non shrimp shack in the road side. The fish is the catch of the day, cooked by local sheft with local ingredients.

For me, in order to be four or five stars you have to excel in quality, quantity, price, location or service. Nothing special here. Good quantity on the mahi but each piece was the tail. Bad quantity on coconut shrimp. Average quality on both. Location is beside the road just like most food trucks. Price at $11 is maybe a... More

Not fancy, but good. Many seafood dishes served outside from a food truck. Great place to take a break form the touring of this area. Try the Surf and Surf platter.
