Seafood at its best! Steamed and flavored with perfection. We had Cajun peel and eat shrimp, excellent! Seek this place out as there is a lot of places by here. May not be the biggest or fanciest but food is awesome!

Best seafood in town! The crab legs are phenomenal. And if you like low country boil (shrimp, crawfish, potatoes, corn, mussels, clams) you will LOVE this place! To top it off, the service is incredible! Located in John's Pass, Madeira Beach.
