Eat outside and bring a coat in the winter. This place is amazing! The food is delicious and the rocking table outside with the view, is perfect. My husband loved the raw oysters and I prefer the fried shrimp and blackened redfish.

Great place to eat and just sit back, relax and listen to live music most every night. We always like to sit outside even in the winter. There are heaters throughout the place and the cold just adds to the ambiance.
