While seated on the dog-friendly outdoor deck, the water views cannot be beat. Kayakers, shrimp boats, and even dolphins pass by. The menu features a variety of sandwiches, as well as fried seafood platters and barbecue. Try the fried grouper fingers — these ain’t no fish sticks. Rather, the five chubby “fingers” — firm and fresh — are lightly breaded and perfectly fried. They’re accompanied by an excellent tartar sauce, but the white, flaky grouper is so lovely it seems a shame to drown it in mayo, no matter how fine. Order a bevy of sides, you can’t go wrong. The Geechie Boy house grits are a fine example of the genre. Creamy and buttery, yet not ridiculously so, they’re another solid offering. Same can be said of the collards, which are neither too sweet nor too vinegary, and still retain a bit of their verdant vegetable-ness. If it’s ‘cue you crave, go for the smoked turkey breast.
