After reading some other reviews, I decided to give this place a try. Old well worn (but clean)Beach Bar sort of Five. The type of place Guy Fieri would seek out. Numerous local craft beers on tap along with traditional selections. Although this is not a beer review, I will mention as a word of caution about "J'Dub's Chocolate Porter."... More

Most every thing is fried, which is OK if that's what you like, very "down home" locals place and I guess they want to keep it that way. I preferred the place when it was Pelican Pete's!

The food was delicious. So glad we came here! The crab cakes were great and so was the whole fried fish!

We loved it so much we dined there twice. Lunch was grouper cheeks with fried mac 'n cheese. Dinner was smoked mullet. All delish! Enjoyed the food and the efficient, friendly wait staff, too. Will definitely make it a regular stop when we visit.

We came here with a party of 10. At first some of our party was turned off by the décor but after the great service and excellent food everyone agreed this is one of the best place we ate at.

This place is a little gem tucked in between a few nondescript businesses. They have a creative menu with a little bit of everything. They smoke their own meat and offer pulled pork, chicken and several other smoked items. They also have a fairly extensive seafood selection as well. The grouper tacos were fantastic. Huge overstuffed shells wth giant hunks... More

If you want real Florida seafood, Well this is your place. You can get drinks at the bar, or sit down and enjoy fresh seafood. The place is quaint to say the least, but the staff is pleasent and you will get your monies worth.

We paid for a 28oz and a 25 oz. The 25oz... More

Not a fancy place. Just comfortable with great food and drinks. We make a point of stopping here every visit to Anna Maria Island. The oysters were fresh, tasty and tender. All the seafood dishes we've tried have been great. They also have some bbq and good side dishes. The fresh squeezed orange juice margaritas are wonderful! Looking forward to... More
