Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

After trying to get into a couple of other name brand locations and being told it would be over an hour wait at each one, we came across this restaurant. We were able to be seated immediately. It is not fancy but they make up for that with quality food and friendly service. Inside seating tight- about 30people and there is a small outside seating area. The menu has all the seafood sandwiches and baskets, along with burger.
They offer a few appetizers - we had calamari. They also have a couple of specials each day such as Mahi mahi tacos. They have domestic beer and a couple of local choices. The people working there are attentive and friendly. A good choice for a quality casual meal. We will return.

We dined here 3/25/18 Sunday night. While the food ended up being decent, we waited an hour and 15 minutes from time of order to food arriving. We cleaned our own table outside, got our own silverware, waited consistently for refills, were told by the waitress that "everyone just showed up at once and the cook can only cook so fast." Also were told that they had to go pick someone up so they could cook more.
Come on, the peak of spring break season and you can't manage to run this small established place efficiently?

Great stop in, my only "complaint" is the wait time, which was pretty ecscusable for the great shrimp and fries.

The Jamaican meat pies are awesome! Loved sitting outside, they have indoor seating too. The restaurant is just a hop skip and a jump from the beach. Our waitress was very friendly and had great recommendations. We can’t wait to go back and try some more!

The fried shrimp, fish and slaw were tasty. The fries were wonderfully fresh. Very casual atmosphere. Margaritas better elsewhere.
