I had this on my list of places to stop. It wasn't quite what I thought - smaller, more informal. Considering all that, geez, the cook can put out some really tasty food! Certainly can give a regular sit down restaurant a run for its...More

The FOOD! I can't speak for the entire menu, because I can't stop ordering Jeanell's Shrimp or Cracked Conch Baskets. They are simply the best I've ever had anywhere! My wife love's her Fish Tacos, also. All at a very reasonable price.

Delightful little meal enjoyed here. The cook was super helpful and we enjoyed everything we ate. The conch fritters, fries, coleslaw and shrimp were great but the fish tacos stole the show. Fabulous!
