We ordered the fish sandwich (good), fried oyster basket (frozen with thick breading, hardly any oyster) hush puppy was good as well as the coleslaw. Chicken wrap sandwich (good). Hot ham and cheese (awful) it was extremely salty and the meat looked to be Budding lunch meat, very thin and only a few pieces. It was to salty to eat.

Had breakfasy one day and pizza another. Menu looked good, Service good, food was quick, food was good, what more could you want. I was here on the weekend, they were open till 9am, most places in town close. Only draw back, not on the water, most places in town are, seemed like a lot of locals were eating here

We were leaving Everglades heading back to sanibel when we decided it was past lunch time. Happy to find this little diner. Good service, good food. Good prices. Obviously liked by the locals as the hostess greeted many people by name.

After travelling Florida for 3 weeks we have visited many places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This was by far the worst on all parameters.

We were quickly seated and saw the menu had some great selections of seafood, pizza and sandwiches. I ordered the fish reuben sandwich and my wife ordered the fish and chips (grouper). Both were of decent... More

I had the best fried shrimp I've ever had from a restaurant here, and I'm from a shrimping town. I also recommend the onion rings, and the pizza is good too.
