We went on a Saturday around 2:00, was very busy. We were a party of four, had about a 10 minute wait time. You have a choice of inside dining or outside on the deck. We chose first available and sat outside on the deck with the view of the St. Johns River. We sat at a high top table with an umbrella. There was a nice breeze coming off the water. The only negative about sitting outside is that some people were smoking at the tables, or while standing around looking at the boats and water.
They have a lot of lunch specials. One that our party got was shrimp and ribs. The shrimp was lighty breaded and the ribs were tender, fall off the bone. The meals comes with crispy hushpuppies and two sides. The sides just aren't fries, coleslaw etc. They offer okra with tomatoes and rice, black eye peas and rice and many more. We also got the mahi mahi grilled, amazing. Our waitress Cindy was awesome, very attentive and polite. Now you see why it is really the Diner's Choice!!

We have always counted on this restaurant for good food and a nice atmosphere. Tonight I ordered a steak for the first time. I was very disappointed. I ordered the 8 oz Rib Eye steak, for $16.50. The steak had a good flavor but it was paper thin and luke warm. My husband's catfish was its usual good quality, but both of our friends dining with us also had luke warm food.

Friends on sailboats stopped for lunch, raw oysters were great but the waitress was so busy she forgot the crackers and we had to tackle her just about to get her attention. She mistakenly filled our unsweetened tea with sweetened and it was the same situation, hard to get her attention and then she was in such a hurry it was hard for her to understand what we wanted. We had dinner salads with Mahi that were delicious, the place appears nice and clean and the view is great.
