I thought this would be a great place to eat. The menu is very limited and it is very expensive. The food is so-so not worth what they charge but it is always busy during season. Having lived in Hobe Sound many years, I have...More

We go there a few times a month for the tuna (or fried shrimp). Tuna comes with wasabi and sliced ginger. Entrees are served with tossed salad or coleslaw, hush puppies and several potato or rice choices (potato skins are my favorite).

Worth the effort to visit. My catfish was cooked to perfection. Wife had Fried Shrimp, also excellent. Rounded out with cole slaw, hush puppies, cheese grits. Reasonably priced with excellent service.

So happy they are open after Hurricane Irma and their vacation. It was closed for what seemed forever...but in reality only a month, I sure missed it. I love this little place. It is very low key and laid back, and the food is terrific....More

Very casual but nice atmosphere. Seating a bit tight. Service was excellent. Catfish fillets, fried shrimp and fried oysters yummy. Cheese grits and fries very good. Fried scallops breading was soggy and fell off. Portions generous. Though a bit pricey for atmosphere and quality.

We had frogs legs as an appetizer. I'm not sure where they found the frogs but those were the biggest frogs legs I've ever had! Fried oysters for me. Perfection!! This place is a hidden treasure. Well worth a visit!
