My daughter got married on the beach she reserved 35 seats for after the wedding dinner. We were seated promptly and had a limited menu that had a great variety of food for everyone. Service was great 35 of of us were in and out from 7:30 to 9-9:30. The food was awesome! I will definitely eat there again !

Food was ok but small portions for the huge price. Better views at the burger place downstairs. 65 dollars on average per couple with no appetizers.

The food was amazing!!! Got the amberjack with the crab and shrimp on top and my picky husband that doesn't eat shrimp loved them!!! So fresh and amazing!!! He got the mahi mahi which was the catch of the day and didn't leave a single flake! Ordered the calamari for app and it was also superb! Good pricing too!!! Love... More

The food was not great and it was very expensive for the quality - go to Boschamps or Old Bay Steamer for good food
