Was welcomed by them even though it was getting close to time to close, and had just came from Gators where we got no service! The food was good! A small little casual place on the boardwalk at Johns Pass.

I ate here 3 times in my 10 day visit and it was great each time, fab lobster rolls, and grouper sandwich to die for, and without a doubt the best fries eaten in Florida. Will be back next year

The food here is excellent! It's very small and was hot waiting for a table but sooo worth it. The lobster roll was fantastic. The staff is friendly and provides an excellent customer experience. We would go eat here again for sure!

This place is small in stature but mighty in flavor and quality. You might have to wait for a table but it's worth the wait. Got the fresh Grouper po'boy, it was Devine! The onion rings are the bomb!

We stopped for lunch. We were seated quickly. Service was great. We ordered a philly steak and chicken parm sandwich and we both liked our meals. Worth a visit

Not #1 by many accounts. We showed up at 7pm on a Thursday with 6 adults and 4 kids. We waited until 7:45 to sit because the space will literally hold 12 outside in 2 separate booths and 5 square tables you can push together...More

Established in 2007 We are a casual waterfront restaurant located on the boardwalk in Johns Pass Village. We started as a small ice cream and coffee shop in 2007. We slowly expanded over the next few years slowly bringing in more and more food items. Now we are a one stop shop on the boardwalk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and love to hangout on the boardwalk and talk about fishing. Come on out and try our Authentic New England Lobster Roll, our delicious fish tacos and of course our famous Boardwalk fries, you wont be dissapointed.
