We were greeted immediately and with a smile. The fish tacos and grouper entree were both hot and delicious. We were glad we walked out of the Chili's next door and came here. Would definitely look for and visit another one. This is very casual- you order at the counter and they deliver the food to your table. Moderately priced... More

Service was slow for lunch and the food was a little greasy. compared to other local seafood places (Shells, Seine Yard, Crystal River Seafood) I would rate this below average. Also very overpriced for what you get.

This restaurant is kind of like a Culvers where you order and pay and then they bring the food to the table. We tried fried shrimp, tilapia, mahi mahi, and the crab cakes. All of the food was good, especially the shrimp which had a lot of flavor. We didn't have anything special, but the food was good.

Everything tasted the same...couldn't have told you the difference between the hushpuppies, the shrimp or fish....all just overly fried.

Order & pay at the counter and find a seat. Friendly & personable servers deliver your food and frequently check in on you & offer refills. Loved their mahi tacos! I was so happy to find a restaurant that serves real fish (instead of talapia, swai, or basa) in their tacos. At first I didn't think they would fill me... More

We ate here as a family meal after Googling "casual seafood restaurant Tallahassee". We were pleasantly surprised. The location is great, less than a mile to the state Capitol. The good part: extensive seafood menu, fast service, good prices, and beer on the menu! The seafood was prepared several ways, grilled, blackened or fried. Also a few tables to eat... More

We wanted to eat something fast but not a burger. 😀 The food is delicious . The wharf platter is quite big and it was enough for two.

Eat here about 20 times a year. Excellent seafood for reasonable prices. The Panacea Platter has mullet, devil crab, shrimp and oysters. You can get a lot of sides, including decent sauteed green beans which help us diabetics. The Whole Flounder is the best thing on the menu, especially blackened. Seafood gumbo is outstanding. If you get a salad as... More
