    Get a patio table. Start w/the delicious angry tuna roll. Ask abt. specials; order a local fish. Swordfish or mahi mahi are good bets if available. Key lime pie to top it off. Nice kids menu.

    I had their seafood chowder and oyster po' boy. I was extremely happy with my choice. Not to mention, they have great coffee for a restaurant. Michael was an excellent server.

    Great steaks, great fried seafood, they even make some outstanding sushi. They offer interesting brunch selections too. Best of all, this is a great spot to relax outside and watch the sunset.

    The salmon BAC (bacon avocado tomato) is amazing!! I get this every time I come. These are also the best sweet potato fries you'll ever have.

    Had the gumbo and scored flounder. Both were very good. Service is excellent and the Mgr is involved in the businesses and it shows. Highly recommended.

    If you've got to wait for a table, this is probably the best place to wait. Big outdoor bar with Adirondack chairs, cornhole, giant Jenga, a beer garden, and a pier at sunset.

    Crazy busy! But they take limited reservations if you call and we were in search of a low country boil. Everything was very good in classic fried and boil style, especially the crab.

    The very long wait was a breeze with the kid friendly sand/Lego area. A perfect place for families. The food was delicious and the location can only be beat by the incredibly friendly staff.

    The tortilla-crusted tilapia is really creative and very tasty, you can get it on the early bird menu. Also, great drinks and service.

    Outside area has great vibe. Inside area is pretty chintzy. Food is fine. But you don't ever get great food from venues this large. And you certainly don't get good service.

    Tuna 3 Ways if you can't decide, Poki my fav, outdoor dining a pleasure when weather cooperates, but there's never a bad day on the coast

    Be prepared for "island time" service but it's worth the wait. We loved the salmon "rocket" feller but didn't agree with the surf and turf roll. Angry tuna special and dirty martinis were excellent.

    Brunch was ok. Long wait for dinner but they have plenty to do while you wait (bar, Legos, sand box, cornhole). Fish tacos were good but get the peeled shrimp as an app too!
