This is a family and tourist friendly joint. It feels like a roadside stand, in a good way. Very casual. Loud and busy and nobody cares because you get good food close to the beach. I'd go again.

This is a fun restaurant that the whole family can enjoy together. Service is amazing and the food is really good. They have yummy shrimp. The batter is perfect! Add some malt vinegar for a little added flavor. Delish!

Thank briel
