    The blackened pork chops, sweet potato fries and slaw were great! Hubby had grouper fingers. He loved them! I don't think you'd can go wrong eating here.

    You know you have found a great spot to drink when as soon as you walk in the bartender threatens to smack the person next to you.

    Better than many tourist traps, but is still a tourist trap. At least they have many seafood options. I had the Mahi poboy for lunch - not sure it was really Mahi, but it was still pretty good.
