Be very careful. They will try to stiff you. I accepted the first time they rejected the Groupon, but I threatened to call the cops this time. That got the message through to them about my take on fraud.

Worst Groupon iv ever bought. No where does it say not valid on crab. But we were told that Groupon customers were taking advantage and ordering crab and this was causing them a loss. This was one of many weird behaviors on the part of the waitress and the owner. Do not get this Groupon!

Female owner or partner was rude and insulting. Upset we ordered 2 lunches for $9.99 with the $20.00 Groupon. She said we should've spent a minimum of $12.00 to $13.00 to make it profitable for her. She said she was going to post a sign for Groupon Customers to that effect. In addition, the food was extremely salty, and greasy, and I got ill. Not knowing this business, I prematurely purchased 2 more Groupon Deals to STM Seafood, but Groupon compensated me with Groupon Bucks on those Deals given the bad experience.

I'm really glad I had a Groupon because this place is terrible. And, we were informed right away that there was no crab (half the menu) and that the owner doesn't honor Groupons for crab dishes anyway because they are expensive. So, you can only get the cheap things, which aren't cheap. The decor is immature, there is no atmosphere, they have a huge bar but do not serve alcohol, even beer and wine, the food is frozen and heated up in fryers and microwaves, and could be made by a child. The garlic fries were Orida crinkle cuts with garlic powder sprinkled on them. Really? That's not cooking, that's heating up. I could do that for free at home in my clean kitchen. They charge $14 for an entree as if they were a real restaurant. And $7.99 for a slice of key lime pie that I am sure comes straight out of a box that costs half that at Publix. Very disappointing. The only good thing about this place was our server. She was very nice and helpful and I think could be a wonderful server that actually made money at a proper restaurant.

I was unaware the you couldn't purchase a Snow crab, boiled shrimp of blue crab with the Groupon. Very mis-informed by the advertisement.

The seafood was cooked perfectly and seasoned appropriately. I had the Calamari and it melted in my mouth, was not tough or chewy. The fried tomatoes were a bit greasy for my taste but the flavor was on point. My boyfriend had fried fish and it was flaky and buttery. The food overall was fantastic. The server had a little bit of attitude with us, which was unfortunate, but would go back for the food.
