We had lunch here at the beginning of stone crab season. That and a salad was very filling. Others in the party had seafood combos--plenty of food, well-prepared. Great atmosphere as well.

Recommended by a friend while out shopping for seafood, this location is not very impressive from the outside, but the food will hook you hard. They sell seafood for home consumption (somewhat limited offerings) but it is the restaurant part of their operation that will blow you away. Had their Conch Fritters appetizer and Crab Cakes for the meal portion.... More

When our friends took us here for lunch we thought they were crazy … until we tasted the food and discovered what a hidden treasure this place is. From the street it looks like a nondescript neighborhood market with little to offer. But when you walk through the doors, you are greeting by friendly people, a great selection of fresh... More

Very fresh seafood. Terrific variety, large portions at very reasonable prices. They have beer & wine and no-frills. It was a wonderful casual experience. Will definitely return again and again.

Off the beaten track, this down to earth informal restaurant was a find. Order at the counter delivered to your table. Seafood that is reasonably priced that is better than upscale places

A pretty good takeout seafood restaurant. Order ahead of time if you can. Blackened catfish fillets were nicely sized and tasty. "Medium" grilled shrimp was on the small side, but the seasoning was good. Scallops were not overcooked. Calamari is not breaded - - we prefer it that way but everyone may not. Overall a good place to get fresh... More

Thank you for your positive review and we are glad you enjoyed our tasty seafood. Just wanted to clarify that our calamari actually IS served lightly breaded (although it can be requested grilled or blackened). Hope to see you again soon! More

Wow just a meal that makes you so very happy from the inside out. First it's a fish market with very high quality clean local fish and shellfish. Prices are as usual but no pre iced corporate caught crab here. On the other side of the market you feel like you've been teleported to the Bahamas. A nice cozy dining... More

This eatery is located in bad neighborhood. The see food is really fresh- this is only good about it , because it is all deep fried . Could be cheaper too,since it is not even restaurant- there is no service. Self serving place. Paper plates,disposable forks. Salad had two microscopic portions of dressing. Not my kind of place- I went... More

Thank you for your review. Although you found the food really fresh, I am sorry you were not completely satisfied. Did you know that we offer five different methods of preparation? Besides fried in 100% peanut oil, we also offer our food grilled, blackened, scampi (sautéed in garlic butter), or steamed in Old Bay, according to order. I regret that... More

Great food!!!... we were kinda overwhelmed by the menu, and the guy at the register was new... so he was no help.... ZERO people skills. But we muddled through and had some terrific food! I had Shrimp Scampi, and hubby had grilled Super Jumbo shrimp. Both were excellent. Decor is cute, with outdoor furniture inside.

Thank Rista
