The staff was nice and helpful to me as a first time visitor to their shop. I had the flounder. Oh my gosh, it was so good. Excellent. I had some large, steamed, headless, shrimp, also very good. The fish was steamed to perfection, flakey,...fresh caught, and so delicious. Try it. Be prepared to wait a minute. Call ahead with your order if you prefer. They get busy, fast.More

We were excited to get our family crab legs. We ordered 4 pounds of crab legs and 2 pounds shrimp feeling like that would feed everyone. Got back to condo and only had 4 clusters (5legs each) of crab. We paid for 4 POUNDS $150....Very disappointed. Felt way over charged and negligence of staff to check our order. Picture of our (4 lbs crab ordered😳)More

Awesome shrimp. Boiled on the spot. Boiler closes down 15 minutes before closing time so plan ahead. Definitely will go back for crab and scallops next time.

Best $8 we’ve spent on our vacation! We ordered the 1/2 lb shrimp plate with potatoes and corn. My wife added sausage to hers and loved it. Service was fast! Food was prepared perfectly! The team inside was helpful! Stop in the next time you’re...here - you’ll be glad you did!More

Seafood bisque is AMAZING! We bought several frozen quarts to share with friends back home. Friendly, hard-working folks! I wish we had ordered more of their fresh seafood to try. There is so much to choose from.

Double-Check Your Bill Bought two grouper filets which were advertised at $22/pound and ended up paying ~$45. When I checked the weight after I arrived at home, the 2 filets weighed ~ 1 pound. In other words, I paid twice what I should have

Best $8 meal in the world. My husband and I each had a shrimp plate. The shrimp was sweet as lobster and so plentiful. Can’t recommend this place any higher.

The best fresh seafood we’ve found and always friendly people! We go every other day when at DI to get more shrimp, smoked seafood spread and fish. Love it!

Amazing shrimp and fish and other seafood. Steamed to near perfection. We went back again and again. So fresh. Call your order in ahead of time to avoid the wait. Ask for condiments. Can’t wait to go back. (Note that this is a seafood market...and not a sit down restaurant in case that is not clear.)More
