    Probably the best shrimp taco I ever had. You have to go there! Order the sweet potato fries and ask for the special sauce. Absolutely amazing.

    Guy Fieri was here for DDD. The Conch Fritters were delicious. The Lobster Roll and Mahi Mahi Tacos were a generous size and were decent.

    Excellent service, cozy patio space, and good food. Lobster 7/10, onion rings and sweet potato fries 8/10, and large hot dog 9/10. Hidden gem on Duval.

    Since everyone's raving about the lobster roll already I'll comment on the coleslaw. A lot of places try to make it too fancy but theirs is just simple and amazing.

    Lobster roll is tasty and true to New England style. Probably best to come here for lunch to get the best seafood and service.

    The lobster sandwich is the best thing in the whole world. Your life is pointless if you don't try it!

    Many of my clients recommend this place and I'll try it again but the fish taco was so spicy I couldn't eat it. So was the clam chowder... And since when is chowder spicy?

    Do not miss out on the lobster roll. The sweet potato fries are phenomenal with their homemade maple mayo.

    If you like clams, go Ipswitch or go home. This is some of the best eats I've had in the Keys

    The overstuffed lobster roll was worth it. Most lobster I've ever had on a roll.

    Lobster was very fresh without excessive sauce. Conch fritters were a bit too salty for us though!

    The Islamorada Ale is a perfect beer to match the fried seafood.

    The lobster roll was good but not amazing. The white sauce was pretty flavorless. Needed salt! Staff could have been sweeter and all around the facility could have been cleaner. Just my two cents.
