We ordered takeout this time and were not disappointed! There were five of us and we tried the Caesar salad with grilled mahi, ceasar with grilled shrimp and George's Bavarian (I think) on a pretzel roll with grilled mahi. All amazing! They close early so get there by 4!

Nice selection of local seafood. House smoked mackerel and salmon. Just picked up some fish for the grill but looks like they have a nice little cafe too.

We went fishing on the marathon lady and walked over here to have our catch cooked up for lunch. They did a great job cooking the fish 3 ways (fried, Cajun seasoning, and grilled) with sides for a very reasonable price, and it was so convenient to be able to walk right over here from the dock with our fresh...

Just ate lunch there today. Service was great! Ordered fish of the day sandwich, with fries (extra $1). One of us got fried, one grilled and another blackened. While all three were good, we all agreed our same type of sandwich last night in key west was better. This wasn't bad by any means! Just was expecting to be blown... More

Casual, friendly staff and owners, exceptional food! We had several lunches and dinners there. Stone crab chowder was great, as well as grilled fish tacos. My husband loved the German dishes.

A small place on the side of the Overseas highway, with an unimpressive exterior, but once in is quite cute in a local kind of way. A small bar and two small rooms with tables are quickly and efficiently turned over, but not in a rushed kind of way. I was alone so only got to try the special sandwich...... More
