I have eaten here many times. They have a great turkey and dressing dinner on Sundays. Good food and friendly people. Plenty of parking spaces too.

Stopped by to catch a quick bite before heading home. It was a nice cozy family restaurant. They offer other food besides seafood. Did have to wait a bit for our food but it was good.

Fresh local shrimp and jumping mullet? What more could you ask for from a great local seafood restaurant. Well appointed salad bar and wonderful service. We will definitely return when we are back in the area!
