Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 April 2018

We had been to the neighbouring sea fish place and had to wait for some time to get the fish cleaned. So we decided to go to this restaurant for a quick grab of food.
Fresh fish - Shrimp, Flounder, Pompano and others. You chose, they cook the way you want. We decided to go for Pampano; requested it to be slightly battered and fried with a side of french fries.
Five minutes later we had the plater in front of us. NO FRILLS! And the meal was good. Picnic tables around with a view of water's edge.
People were coming and going and the cash register was cling-clanging way.
Next time we go there, it will have to be shirmp!

we sat in the patio along with many other customers enjoying fresh fish!.

Pier 8 is open.
Return to great seafood.
This entire area is clean, after the storm.
We shared the XL Shrimp and they were delicious!
Great selection of fresh seafood.
You select and they cook it.

The fishies, red snapper, tilapia, catfish, squid, shrimp, etc... only leave in two ways from thks restaurant. Pretty simple really... either dead in cooked or battered and fried.

Very delicious, I love it.

Majority seating outside is fine except sometimes the stray cats come around for food. That was the down fall.

It's a place to get a quick bite and leave, not recommended for a full restaurant experience.

We walked in and tried to determine how to get seated. We waited about 5 minutes before we looked for a hostess station. It took 10 minutes to find someone to tell us to wait to be seated. We stood there for 30 minutes. I don't think I've ever been so patient in my life. We left, though, because the place was a mad house. Kids were running around and crawling under tables. Some had crayons, others had crab crackers or mallets, some were just behaving ludicrously because no one was expecting them to behave differently. People walked away from tables that were covered in debris and food remnants and no one bothered to dispose of the garbage.
I don't know if the food was good. We never got a chance to try it.

We order 2 red snapper and 2 pounds of jumbo shrimp . Apparently each fish weight 4 pounds each $15 a pound .for me the food needs more flavor more seasoning .It was a party of 6 and we all agree on that .First and Last visit
