We go here for lunch about once a month. We have a good time, waitresses are friendly and flexible with ordering. Food is fresh and good sized servings. Seafood seems fresh and a large menu.

Average quality and service. Outside music is OK. Menu varied for seafood and non- seafood eaters. Meatloaf pretty good. Prices commensurate with other similar locations..

If you’re visiting The Shell Factory with your kids and want something to eat; this is fine. But, do go there for a nice meal; don’t bother. The menu is limited; mostly fried foods. Staff was friendly and competent.

You can even bring your dog for a treat at our new outdoor DogBones Café. The MENU Ranges from appetizers to fresh seafood which includes our popular fried fish special. Both Capt'n Fishbones & the Dolphin Room are newly renovated and offer great service with Old Florida Charm.
