12 fried shrimp, 2 sides, hushpuppies for $7.50 4-6PM on the day we happened in. Shrimp were excellent. Definitely try the "pink sauce" for the shrimp.

We were passing on our was to St Augustine and had not had any breakfast . We decided to stop for lunch and are very glad that we had. The menu is extensive and as the name suggests almost exclusively seafood. You do need to read the menu properly, there is a lunch menu on the back which if a... More

This was my first visit. I ordered the Shrimp Special which included 12 fried shrimp, 2 sides, and 2 hush puppies. I ordered fried okra and the squash casserole for my sides. I got the Chocolate Peanut butter pie for desert. Everything on the entree came out hot. The pie was also good. I would go back.

We've eaten here several times when were in town, the place is nothing special and we always get the shrimp. We have never had any issues with our food or our service.

This restaurant is right next door to the Best Western we stayed at. Got seated quickly, meal was very good and ample. We both had fish and left very satisfied. Prices were reasonable? Paid close to $40 for two fish fries and water. Actually to us that was a bit high but we actually don't eat out that much. Catch... More

We had a reservation and showed up about 3 minutes early. The restaurant was not crowded and the hostess greeted us when we walked in and said she'd be with us in a minute. 15 minutes later we were still waiting and she never acknowledged us again even though she was clearly not busy. Final I said something and then... More

We went with a large group and tried most of the seafood items. We had a blast. Favorites included shrimp, scallops and oysters. The conch fritters were the favorite appetizer. The entries were $20 and less.

We were told about this place, and we soon learned they didn't lie when we walked into a laid-back place in East Palatka (east of the St. John's River). Everything from the place to the help to the food was fine...nothing fancy, but I can't eat fancy...and I refuse to pay for it, too. We both had shrimp dishes...she had... More
