8:30 or so, walked down from Bridgewalk & had a light dinner. It was busy as after the sunset everyone wants to eat but certainly not anywhere full inside but outside was full. That made our wait to be served & to get our orders and those around pretty long.

Food was good but nothing really special about it.

When you want fried, broiled, grilled seafood and a cold beer or a cocktail this is the place. Super clean, great service, awesome food. Four of us had fried pickles, fried shrimp, Grouper sandwich. Everything was great. Cole Slaw was unique and very good. The fried pickles had a bite of spice. Under $120 for four of us. It is what it is but it is great at what it does. A lot of AMI restaurants are trying to be something but this place is the real thing.

For a Sunday afternoon, with plenty of staff and not very many customers the service was awful. It took about 10 minutes to get a drink that came in a very small plastic cup because " they didn't have any martini glasses" and it was one of their featured drinks! For an area where there are so many really good restaurants (most of which you are pleasantly surprised by) this was the first one I'd be hesitant to go back to.

Visited over Spring Break, crowds were especially heavy. We waited quite awhile for a table (which was expected due to our large group and it being Spring Break). Once seated, waitress complained about how busy they were, how short staffed the restaurant was and how she could not split checks. Multiple people in our group ordered the all you could eat fish n chips and were never offered any more fish besides the initial first plate. Overall not a great experience.

After a hot day in the sun, the covered outdoor seating was perfect. Fantastic views of the bay. We had a great meal and everyone was pleased with their choices. Grilled fresh catch, gumbo, salmon, baby back ribs, fried pickles, buffalo chicken strips and the fish and chips was delicious! Great happy hour specialty drinks! Our waiter was Shaun and he was excellent! We were visiting during busy Easter week and went for an early dinner (4:00) by the time we left the restaurant the wait was 60-90 minutes. Parking is difficult as there are a lot of restaurant/bars on this street and some shops. May want to consider the trolley or monkey Bus. Decently priced. Will visit again!
