Fodor's Review

Come early to watch the boats unload the catch of the day on the docks and to beat the long line that forms each afternoon at this noted restaurant with a real family feel. Here since 1953, it doesn't seem to have changed much and that's a good thing. A nautical theme is reinforced by tables made of hatch covers in the attached bar, which attracts longtime locals. The Greek specialties aren't limited to feta cheese and shriveled olives. Charcoal-broiled grouper, amberjack, and yellowfin tuna; crab-stuffed jumbo shrimp; stuffed fillet of grouper; whole oven-broiled stuffed Florida lobster; and steaks are prominent on the menu as well. If you're visiting in the off-season, call to make sure it's adhering to the posted hours before venturing out.
