This is located in the Capital Market and has very good seafoood. They have a soup and fried fish sandwich that is just excellent. I definitely recommend this as a casual dining experience

Fish (fried grouper special) was good and so was slaw. Fries were cold and hush puppies tiny and burnt. Definitely overpriced for what I got ($16.95). Wife got big fish sandwich. It wasn't bad and the crab bisque was pretty good. They served our daughters...More
