The food was sooo good ! The gator tacos are a MUST HAVE , the seasoning was on point , I never had pico before but I love it now ! I had the lobster marco , it was delicious and my husband had the Mac Daddy Trio and he ate it with no compliants. The drinks were good , just not strong enough for my liking. But we will be returning for the gator tacos !

The drinks were well made and a real value! The chips and dip tasted like it was purchased from the local grocery store! Doubtful it was made locally. Very disappointing.

Our server Desi was outstanding! She is really excellent! The food was great too! Had smoked old fashioned’s, crab fondue, a Caesar salad, crawfish pasta, and soft shell crab. Every dish was amazing! The drinks were perfect. My favorite dishes were the fondue (must order) and the soft shell crab. The Cesar salad was very fresh - great dressing. I’d definitely recommend.
