We had the cracked conch sandwich. The conch was very tender and we'll breaded. Excellent sandwich 🙂 The fries are very good as well. Good place for a meal if you are looking for a very good laid back meal. Prices are nice!

This place serves lots of types of food but definitely get the conch strips. They are the most tender and delicious that I have ever eaten!

Great variety of food on the menu and I would recommend the seafood platter. The conch chowder was very good as well. The only negative would be the building is very dated otherwise very good meal.

The fried seafood platter was fresh and delicious. The menu is huge and they serve breakfast until 4pm. Try the margaritas, they are great. Would recommend.
