Today's sunset is at .

Came in off of the boat and this place was just absolutely awesome. Extremely friendly employees and manager with absolutely the best food in that area. We had an order of conch fritters and a bowl of clam chowder that were second to none. Our plan is to go back here for dinner because the menu looks astonishing. A beautiful outside deck with seating and an air-conditioned gorgeous interior.
