Undoubtably the best fish and chips we have had in Naples. The grouper was firm and fresh, while the batter didn't overwhelm the fish. Cole slaw and hush puppies were very good and the seafood chowder was excellent. The place was full to overflowing, but the wait staff was efficient and friendly. Glad to have followed others recommendations to find... More

Wonderful fresh grouper! Blackened and wrapped into a tortilla with slaw and black beans made for a tasty taco! Not a fancy place and definitely focused on grouper.....I am longing for more!

We were recommended this place by friends who are regulars in Naples. We arrived around 6.30pm and the only table free was outside literally backing on to the bumper of a car in the car park! You definitely don't visit here for the location but the food more than made up for that! We shared grouper and chips and shrimp... More

If you get there in time for a seat, you are lucky, but patience is rewarded with the best, freshest, good tasting grouper you will find anywhere. With about six tables inside and another four outside, the place only seats 25-30 people, but all the locals know it. They also do a good carryout business.

By far the very best place in Naples for Fish & Chips. Can't go wrong here. Food is excellent. I have never eaten anything there except Fish and Chips....but so good, have never needed to order anything else. Cole slaw is good, too. They offer Fried shrimp, and blackened grouper as well.

We found this place by accident in a small strip plaza and decided to try it since we have found these little places to be quite good. We were not disappointed. Very good food and service. This place is tiny with only about a dozen tables. You have to pick your time. I doubt we would go here in season.

I had the blackened grouper linguine and it was excellent. The fish was perfectly cooked and sauce was outstanding. I would challenge any 5 star restaurant in Naples to make a better dish. As others have stated it is a very small place, but the food is worth a trip.

Best grouper ever! You can get the fish fried, blackened, grilled or any way you like it. The grouper salad is delish. The place is a small crowded little joint with little space to move but it is worth the trip.

This is a small place, tables in the room and outside in front. Good for local fish. My friend had the grouper basket. I did want fried and had the sautéed grouper. They let me substitute potatoes with coleslaw. I was disappointed that the fish was lightly breaded. The house lemon sauce was lovely. I thought the coleslaw was really... More

Great local place serving very good seafood in a small strip mall location. The grouper dishes were definitely the house favorites when scanning what everyone else was eating at their tables (yes, the place is that small). Best to go on a nice day when you can grab a table outside.
