Very diverse menu. Food was very good and Emma was a great server. Grilled oysters were very good as well as the grouper and tuna tacos.

Great spot, great drinks, and the Almond crusted grouper was the best I ever had! We also had great seats outside. Plan to go back next year.

This restaurant near the beach offers a good selection of seafood and other choices. I loved the chicken sandwich with pineapple. Pineapple upside down cake was delicious for dessert. Ambience was fine and service was very good. Live music was provided as well. However, be...aware before going that this place has a bit of a "Hooters" vibe. One positive is that it is 1-2 blocks from the beach.More
