This is a local joint in Venice Florida. Food was very good service was so-so. My husband had the mixed grill pot so kind of like a seafood boil. had corn potatoes and great seafood. I had shrimp, also very good.

Rather disappointing. Food was average and service poor. Waitress got food order wrong and then a drink order wrong, but nice recovery ... salads had wilted and black lettuce. Atmosphere and setting great.More
