Nothing on the table was bad, We as a group had a pretty good sampling of everything they had to offer. Decent price, large portions, and the coooooolest décor! Love old radios and marine history, they've got it all,

The oyster sampler platter is a must try. The grouper was excellent. Service with Pete top notch. This restaurant was run extremely efficiently during a very busy cruising the coast week on the gulf coast.

Good location. Great food. A little pricey. But food is worth it! Try the pink pearl martini and New Orleans fried oysters.

This is one of the local favorites. I absolutely LOVED the fried green tomatoes. Whatever you order, you will not be disappointed. Great seasoning cooked to perfection.

Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
