My husband had been wanting to bring me here for some time and raved about the shrimp and grits. We came for lunch, based on other reviews I got the SheCrab soup which... More

Wife had their mahi mahi senator style encrusted with almonds, served over rice. It was delicious and not at all fishy. Daughter had coconut shrimp and I had fried shrimp 4 ways. Yum and more yum. Enough food leftover fo lunch the next day.

Guy F. From TV said he liked the seafood fritters...I tried them and they are the best fritters I've had. My husband was not happy with the food but I thought is was OK.

My wife and I just went because we both had the taste for shrimp. We were so impressed with the food and service, we went back again for dinner! Excellent place to eat!

Needed to stop for lunch and saw this place and stopped on a whim. Upon walking in the door and seeing the Guy Fieri poster on the wall, I was hoping we'd chosen well. After a brief wait in the front lobby we were finally greeted and seated in the small dining area. It was a bit late for lunch... More

It is a dive restaurant with a lot of fried fish. We brought in grouper and snapper that we caught that day. They prepared it well. Our waitress was very personable and apologized for the temperature in the restaurant. She said it is always warm in there. For that reason and the dive decor, I wouldn't go back.

When we got inside I was a little nervous about how the food would be because the restaurant itself seemed a little underwhelming...but the food ended up being outstanding!! We had the catch of the day served "Senator" style over a bed of rice. It was the perfect combination of flavors! We also got the shrimp and grits which was... More
