    Sit outside and kids can play on the playground while you wait for your food. They also get a bucket and shovel to play in the sand.

    A friend brought me here for lunch and I must say I was very surprised. The crab dip is very creamy and I like that they serve pita chips with it. My shrimp po boy was excellent.

    The amberjack grilled is very good, but I wish it had more seasoning on it, my husband says it’s wonderful the way it is. We do agree that the gumbo is wonderful and full of flavor.
