Something for everybody! Can see why its a number 1 on tripadvisor! Food was delicious! We had shrimp tacos and the platter! Plenty of food, almost no wait time despite restaurant being full!

The place is very popular with the local population. You either walk up or drive thru to order. Limited seating which makes sitting at popular times very uncomfortable other diners stand around staring at you waiting for a table. You will be in a line...More

Very simple and good food. A few options but just right. Nothing spectacular. A good place to have a fun lunch with family and friends.

This is a small place that makes up for it's size with some of the best seafood around. The gumbo is awesome and the fish is super fresh. Love this place and they are always nice.

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
