First and foremost Mike, our server out on the back deck, was terrific. He was not only waiting on the tables but serving as bartender as well but never would you have known he was doing double duty. Always had a smile and time to explain items and give recommendations. We started with Corky's Cod Bites. Lightly breaded and perfectly fried they were very good. Serves with a sauce that was a great compliment to their mild taste. Hubby had the shrimp and bacon sandwich that Mike had mentioned and he truly enjoyed every bite. Lightly breaded and perfectly fried shrimp accompanied crispy bacon, fresh lettuce and tomatoes on a fresh bun. Served with cole slaw and French fries. My daughter and I both had the shrimp lunch. We both asked for fried and it was again perfectly breaded and fried. Large shrimp and very fresh. The baked potato and green beans were our choice of sides. Baked potato was steaming hot and the beans were served with boiled potato and a little bacon. How could you go wrong? Plenty of shady spots on the deck and a view of the St Johns River made for a perfect spot for a relaxing lunch.
Came for Mother's Day. Brought both sides of the family. Not a bad wait time, considering there was only ONE parking place left (including the overflow). Started off with a gator tail appetizer with ranch dressing. Deeeelish! They even ate the kale trimmings. More to come. ***okay side note, the table of like 12 right next to us just pitched a fit about how the food doesn't look like they thought it should...server didn't even bat an eye, just happily replaced it with something else they wanted. 5 star service!*** Alrighty, so we got our food after a little bit of a wait, it was nice and warm though, so no complaints. Everything was very good, except for they ran out of Oysters, so I got about 5 extra butterfly shrimp to replace them. My ONLY complaint about the food would be the "fish" that comes with the big mate platter honestly tasted like a Gorton's fish fillet from the freezer. The texture was a little tough (and TOO perfect throughout), and there was very little taste besides the breading. The shrimp was very good, the oysters, dunno, the gator tail was scrumptious. No room for the cheese grits and a couple of hush puppies, so they came home with us. All in all, even with the oyster shortage and the bland fish, I would still very definitely go back, AND rate them 5 stars! It is a bit out of the way, being in Palatka, but I would say it is worth the trip from anywhere south of Jax.
Great food and a great atmosphere. It is a very nice dinning experience. But it's not cheap. It is well worth the price. I love the seafood plater. They have outside seating that over looks the Saint Johns river. Very nice. And frequently have live music. Service has always been good for me.

We went here after my dad's celebration of life service and had quite a large crowd. Everyone was great and the food was excellent!!! A++++
Amazing food, good quiet atmosphere, and way shorter wait times than corky bells just up the road.
Fantastic seafood restaurant, nice affordable prices, family friendly has nice weekly specials. Would highly recommend this places! Food is the same quality as corkie bells for about half to price.
