    Fishermen bring in fresh catch that they fillet right there. Real local joint with pool table and wandering dog and a big fat local cat. Beers are ice cold and everything is self serve. You will need a car and directions. But it's worth it to eat on the dock, plastic tables and plastic forks, watch the sunset and talk to the fishermen.

    There is a window you go to and the lady behind the window tell you what fish they have that day. She'll ask you how many people and will set you up. Get the shrimp basket and fries also if you go. The shrimp, head on are the size of your hand.

    Everything is fried up by a bunch of cool locals right in front of you with an awsome batter. They have a papaya hot sauce that rocks and lemon and lime.
    We bring our own tartar and cocktail sauce.

    We ate family of five and had a bunch of chills and sodas for the kids for $60 American.

    Let me know if you go and what your experience was!

    Ahh - yes a friend told us about that place. We were thinking of doing it during our winter trip this year. My friends that are coming in arent really the adventurous types!

    My only observation is that the dinner reservation might be a little too close to the return from the sunset cruise. Don't you want/need time to change or freshen up? Or do you plan to head straight to the restaurant?

    Yeah - that's on purpose. We have done Jolly pirates a few times and found if we just go straight out after, it is more productive that trying to regroup after a freshen up.
