We stopped because some good reviews but I was very Disappointed, with the signature dish of the house, Coquille, a mix of scallops, shrimp, fish and crabmeat, or fake crabmeat. The fried frog legs and the hush puppies was good.

We live nearby, have been going to JC"s for over 25 years. It is ALWAYS great! I read a terrible review, it upset me , it was completely wrong. It looks like like an old time Fla seafood restaraunt. We love it!

Really do not know as we were only there once. It's a very casual joint right off the highway, but the food was pretty good.
