Love their smoked tuna dip. They are closed for the winter, but we hit it right this time. Very good, fresh fish.

Bought 2 lbs. of what was to be fresh lump crab meat for around $45. After getting it back to our condo and opening it up 45 minutes later, the crab smelled of rotten eggs. After pouring it into a bowl to remove all shell content, it stunk up the condo. I took it back expecting to get an exchange... More

I came in at closing time and was served so I have to give the place credit for that. Everything seemed very fresh although most of the seafood had been packed away for closing. The grouper was excellent as were the shrimp. However, the grouper filets were full of bones. I can understands a stay bone or two but there... More

It is a very small seafood market near a chik-fil-a. They will steam the fresh shrimp for take-out and it is really good. We peeled the leftover shrimp and cooked a fried rice for the next meal. A real good deal. This is the only thing I recommend in this place. Probably want to go to Sexton's or a larger... More

We got some delicious fresh shrimp here. They steamed it for a small fee. We also got the key lime pie, and my family loved it. We were staying in Miramar Beach, and it was a very convenient location in a shopping center where CVS is located. Service was very helpful, and they had a good assortment of seafood and... More

First stop after settling into the condo for a one week vacation in Destin. The best key lime pie in Florida. Fresh made everyday. Excellent place to buy fresh seafood.
