    Great food and the price is incredible. We had dinner for 6 people, including appetizers from the raw bar, drinks, dessert, entrees and the check was only like $120. The seafood was VERY fresh!!

    We had the fish taco's and conch fritters everything was perfect. This place is kind of down home south Florida style atmosphere. If you are looking for very reasonably priced seafood this is it

    The only thing better than happy hour is two happy hours! Early Happy Hour M-F 4-7pm or Late Night Happy Hour Sat-Thu 11pm-close, featuring select clams, shrimp and drink specials.

    Oysters are the best in town. Always fresh! Try the crawfish bisque on Fridays and buffalo shrimp when they have them on special. My favorite late night place. Joe the bartender is the best!

    Oysters were large. Old bay shrimp were deliciously buttery. Great value, and great atmosphere. Print out the 10% off coupon from their website and bring it in!

    Capt. Ben & Mate Jo of M/Y Freedom love to put the tender in & cruise over here for the excellent oysters, conch chowder, fried shrimp, etc.! Fun place to wind down after a hard day on deck.

    Oysters were excellent plump juicy and fresh. However had a bad experience with fish tacos. Avocado was brown and old and slaw was very to wet and drippy. Cat fish was overdone, not golden brown.

    No parking? Go a half-block south and turn east onto SE 16th Street and you’ll find Southport’s “hidden” lot wedged into an alley. Path to Southport deck is at the end of the alley. More tips on link. Read more

    Not much of a seafood person but this place ROCKS.....and if you're not in the mood for seafood, try their wings and miniburgers. BTW Old Bay Shrimp is where its at.

    Left a previous bad report about the bartender. Received a call from the owner and he is taking care of this bartender and was very apologetic. Kudos and much thanks for the owner handling this!

    Watch out for cockroaches! They will walk around inside. Downside: creepy critters near your food. Upside: free drinks to keep it quiet.

    BEWARE! Mad bartender broke the bottom of wine glass off at the bar after we only had the $6 cash to pay for 1 glass. We thought it was $4.50 HH. Reported to mgr and offered free dessert. Really?
