For what it is and where it is, this little snack bar can’t be beat! Great lobster rolls and I saw someone else eating amazing onion rings.

This unpretentious take out window is located behind the Lido Key public beach and has the best lobster rolls ! Awesome. The salads were fresh and crisp and the beer cold. What a great finish to a day at the beach.

This place is brilliant, the choice of food is wide and varied. So far every thing we have had has been fresh and tasty served with a smile. It is such a shame that there are plans to knock it down.

A great restaurant with fantastic food. They always go a long way to ensure the very best virgin olive oil is made available to additionally highlight the food. The pizzas are served in either 1/2 or 1 meter lenghts. Great value for your money.
