This place is a must stop! Long wait but there are alligators to feed, a beautiful view and some delicious drinks while you wait.

Great food and so many photo ops!! Definitely recommend. Even though our local friends didn’t recommend it it was soooo worth it and we are glad we went. They also have live gators!!

We love to get seafood when near/on the coast cause we don't have good ocean seafood back in Ohio. We liked the menu here, so decided to give this place a try. The staff was friendly and nice. There is ample parking at this location, and it was fairly busy for a Spring day. One of the reasons we went here is to feed the live gators, but they weren't too active. Still probably a little cold for them. My husband and I each got a Deviled Blue Crab sandwich. My husband's was better than mine, as he didn't have many bones in his. Mine however was full of them. I only ate half of my sandwich if that, and it wasn't cheap. Also, it needed cheese, or sauce, as it was kind of dry without it. We did enjoy splitting a cup of clam chowder. I probably wouldn't return if in the area, and would try someplace else. Food was not up to par, especially for the cost.

You must stop if you like seafood. Everything is delicious and worth every penny. Service is excellent and attentive. Watch out for cats, and go meet the birds.

Good food, but a bit over priced. Nice marsh side seating! Alligators and few small caged, large tropical birds to look at.
