I had the regular (not overstuffed) shrimp poboy. I don't know they could have stuffed more shrimp in the bun. They were falling out as it was. It was great.

We enjoy eating here. The menu has a wide range of appetizers, baskets, entree's, and sides. The food is always good, servers are polite, the place always looks clean. Nothing fancy, but a very dependable restaurant.

The fish and shrimp basket was good. The food was not over cooked. I likes their tarter sauce. The greens were pretty bland. Over all decent meal but nothing spectacular.

Ate here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Busy time of the day. The seafood as okay. The Shrimp "A 2 Fay" was the best I have ever had. The prices are very reasonable for Destin, Fl.

I stopped in 2 different times while in the area, both times were good. The grilled/blacken combo & next the seafood platter. The shrimp was very good, oysters excellent. I felt you got more for the money with the platter. The service was pleasant and friendly. French fries and shrimp slaw was very good.

We came for lunch and had the 1/2 lb of shrimp, steamed. Then came back for dinner and had the catch of the day. It was very good! I'd recommend it especially if you want a good price and good food!

47 cent Raw oysters on 2nd Tuesday of every month. Great white fish and shrimp. Had red beans and rice for my side, Nice change from French fries. Also liked their coleslaw with little shrimp in it.

Thank goodness for a roll of paper towels on the table cuz Tuesdays all you can eat shrimp had you peeling the shells off the seasoned steamed shrimp. They were delicious and the waitress never let us get empty before checking if we wanted more. The oysters on the half shell were fresh with horseradish, seafood sauce and lemon. Beers... More
