This is right on the VB boardwalk..we stopped here as we walked the beach and enjoyed some Happy Hour bites. The hush puppies are the best we have ever had .. and the tuna bites were pretty good as well. Enjoy!

I absolutely love the Just Seafood dish....Free valet parking is a plus...It could get a bit loud. It's kinda pricey.

Disappointed in the service and dinner. Shrimp was overcooked and potatoes tasted as if they were from a box. Left hungry and extremely disappointed.

Upon arrival you leave your car for the valet to park, in the parking lot you just drove into. We went on a fairly busy night, and the wait for an outdoor table was an acceptable 10 minutes. We were told to walk to back...More
