Found this place, and what great spot. Just a great local bar and river side dock to sit and eat some good fresh food. Conch fritters were good, and the sweet potato waffle fries with cinnamon butter should be on the dessert menu, soooooo good....More

We found this place on the internet and it was a great decision! The food and service was perfect! Great fried shrimp, hush puppies at a fair price. We will make this a regular stop for us.

Oddly enough I do not recall them having crab claws. They have great conch fritters and crab cakes, but did not have crab claws on the menu.
