The specialty at this fast-food joint is seafood - everything from Miami menu classics (grouper and snapper) to soul food classics such as catfish, whiting, and ocean perch, all deep-fried. Sides, most also deep-fried, range (in descending quality) from very tasty onion rings and slaw through decent corn nuggets, okay okra and conch fritters, mediocre fries, and absolutely pointless pizza puffs. Desserts are mostly various brightly dyed cakes, including an appealing, if eye-popping, red velvet cake. Although it's not the best fish joint in town, its late hours (and convenient drive-through window), as well as its location a mere five-minute drive from Wynwood and the Design District, make the place a tasty, noninstitutional alternative to Denny's on gallery walk nights.
