The food here is really good but they don't have lunch portions so had to get shrimp dinner - good but big for lunch. Husband had local catch and said good as well.

The seafood here is fresh and tasty. Scallops, oysters, shrimp and fish - all fried to profection. Get there early or you'll have to wait. Visited twice in one day.

The food is great but this is not a restaurant. You sit on picnic tables outside and in Florida you can count on bugs. We take the food home and enjoy. The fish is fresh and always made to order. It is only open Thursday - Saturday, so plan accordingly.

We have been there more than once. They only have outdoor seating. The food is good. The problem we found is when we have eaten​ dinner there, we were attacked by mosquitoes. They need a pest control to spray. The food is good, just take it home.

This little roadside stand was recommended by the resort when we checked in. Open Thursday through Saturday, always draws a crowd. Don't miss this place for a good plate of well prepared food. Nothing fancy, but good and fresh.

Only open Fri, Sat & Sun, but worth the wait. Food was good. Lots of locals and friendly staff. Laid back and tables are outside.
