We found this little gem while exploring John's Pass and the Pier. The inside of the restaurant has a very simple design with picnic tables filling most of it. We each ordered the 1 1/4 pound of crab legs. They were served up in what looks like modified turkey roasting tins. It all made for a very casual awesome experience because the crab legs were amazing! I'm really glad we didn't miss this one since it's easy to walk right by it on your way up the pier steps. Be sure to stop in for this one, it's worth the hunt.

Felt hungry while walking around John's Pass and found this nice hidden place to eat.
The service was great, friendly and attentive.
The crab was great and the Lobster Mac n Cheese was brilliant.
Worth a visit

It's not really hidden, it just doesn't have any curb appeal as you walk up to the dock at Johns Pass. We saw a little sign that said Florida Boil and decided to give it a try. We walked in and heard crickets, nobody eating here. We thought, do we eat here or not. Well, we did and boy are we glad. The seafood is steamed or boiled and seasoned very well. They'll even let you make substitutions for perhaps a seafood you do not care for i.e. craw-fish. They also have alcohol . The food and service was outstanding. One Florida boil fed 3 of us and was around $40 bucks, I thought it was a deal. Went back the next night with others too. Can't wait to return.

Best seafood in town! The crab legs are phenomenal. And if you like low country boil (shrimp, crawfish, potatoes, corn, mussels, clams) you will LOVE this place! To top it off, the service is incredible! Located in John's Pass, Madeira Beach.
