Fodor's Review

Although it's not the fanciest place, this downtown institution is popular with locals and is always a good bet for excellent seafood. The catch of the day never disappoints, and neither does the grilled conch, if it's available. The more ambitious can try the 2.2 pounds of fried shrimp. Meat dishes here are not as consistent as the seafood. The sides are basic but filling, and almost every main course comes with fries, rice, and coleslaw. It also does a brisk lunch and breakfast business with locals.
