The food here is always good. Very good. Also have a small gift shop. They have excellent breakfasts all day. They have an excellent birthday special 15.95 off of your meal. Great deal. Couldn't ask for more. From fried seafood to BBQ. EXCELLENT.

Plain Jane Restaurant with Amazing Beakfast! Being from the Midwest, we were looking forward to eating Cajun and Frank's did not disappoint. The Seafood Grand omelete with the not to be missed Cajun hollandaise sauce, and the Aligator sausage is wonderful. And if you are...More
