Food was delicious - was first day of stone crab season- we had an appetizer- and then ordered another (they were that good) - I preferred the cocktail sauce - my husband the mustard sauce that is typically served with them!! Our waitress was incredible!!! We will go back if ever in the area!!!

Server was quite nice although certainly needs more training. Food was ok, nothing memorable. Asked for fries well done...didn't happen. Olive oil dressing was not good and O/V containers quite dirty. View was nice outside. With intensive training for waitstaff and kitchen this place could great.

Good Food, not great but good. Grouper was a little bland tasting and shrimp where small for what we paid for them. Little disappointed with that. Best part was eating out on the back porch on the water. Very nice out there this time of year.

Food was ok, parking lot is cramped and people ding your car and seem to have no care about how they park/open their doors. The restaurant can be quite loud with rowdy groups. Seems over priced for what you get.

Absolutely wonderful!  The lobster bisque is filled with chunks of lobster and the breading on all fried fish is so light that even the whole seafood platter won't make you feel weighed down.  Some of the best sweet potato fries and hush puppies I've ever had.  My aunt was extremely impressed with her scallops in alfredo sauce.  The ... read more

Nice outside deck over water. Very good tea. Only thing I really had a problem with was how stingy they were with hush puppies and cocktail sauce. 2 hush puppies and maybe a tablespoon of cocktail sauce. Meal size was moderate.
