Get what I said in the title. It's awesome and what I get every time I go here, if it's available that is. The gumbo it's awesome too. My wife and I go here all the time. It's one of our favorites in the area.

Johna’s checked all my boxes: good variety of wine choices, wonderful spring salad and the freshest catch. It’s not typical to find grouper on midwestern menus so I was thrilled to see it served with a great citrus salsa. The fish was just a bit...More
