Only been here once but probably won’t go back. Wife liked the shrimp poboy but my grouper was a soggy mess. I got the plate not the sandwich so it may be better for some reason.

This is place is located on ocean drive and near 6th street. Overall the menu is quite reasonable price. You can try 3 stone crab claws for $20, which is a local delicacies only available between October and May. The crab cake is good also.
