You are not coming here for the atmosphere but you are coming for the freshest seafood you may find around here. Sit upstairs to get a good view of the river (and not smell the gas from the boats). Everything we ate was super fresh...More

The restaurant staff recommended the grilled grouper with 2 side dishes, crab salad. All tasted so good. Have a table outside so you can watch the boat traffic on the river.

The place was rundown and lack of maintenance. The host did not greet us and servers were horrible they had straight faces no politeness neither people skills. I had a mahi mahi blackened it was overcooked.

The stone crab claws were fabulous. We ordered 5 pounds for 4 people, and everyone had plenty. We ate on the balcony, with a view of the river. It was a relaxed and pleasant evening. Stone crab season is short - be sure to visit...More

The food is good. Ambience is nice, I like to have dinner by the water. One problem, it smells bad (I think it is coming from the river). I have dinner downstairs probably upstairs is better (I was never upstairs, will try next time)

Parking seemed very limited. We took an Uber out to the restaurant so I wasn't really paying that much attention to the aspect of parking. My guess is possibly Valet if super busy? Either way the place is definitely worth... More
