The seafood was fresh and well prepared, I had a burger which was among the best I have had since moving to Florida. Hushpuppies to die for with LIVE MUSIC. The decor is funky old Florida coastal and, for the most part, open air....LOVED IT!

We stopped on our way to bokeelia for lunch, surprised to find a live band playing. We had the grouper sandwich which was very good. Water view is a canal, but still not bad. Very layed back, small restaurant/fish market.
