A TripAdvisor reviewer wrote:
We had never had grouper bites, but we tried them here and they were great. We were also very happy with our baked oysters. They don’t char grill them but they do have the garlic Parmesan oysters baked and they were big and delicious. We loved sitting over the water and watching the boats all around us. We also enjoyed shopping on Bridge St after our meal.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, and the food was really good. My wife couldn’t get over how big the oysters were.
