Tacky, but tasty

Right on the water and the home of Chute for the Skye parasailing. The space is comfortable in a tacky way (their ad copy, not mine). The drinks are fine - particularly the... read more

Great place for kids to watch for dolphins and the adults to enjoy a cocktail. The fried green tomatoes were a great snack and we had fun walking the docks and enjoying the view after lunch. Win win for everyone. :)

Right on the water and the home of Chute for the Skye parasailing. The space is comfortable in a tacky way (their ad copy, not mine). The drinks are fine - particularly the Patriot, which is a sort of mixed-flavor daiquiri, less so the piña colada, which was bland. The food is typical beach/bar food, but generally well prepared.

Decent food, but awful customer service!! Our waitress could care less about the customer service she provided and was very short and rude to our family. I expected more... Especially from what appeared to be a family friendly restaurant!

We were a party of 8, with 2 kids (10 & 14). The waitress was awful, she acted like she did not enjoy her job. From the start when we asked if we could have 3 separate checks, she was confused by the question. She forgot my drink order & never brought me a drink. My husband had to go... More

A great place to visit. We went twice. First time only to enjoy the view with a couple of cold beers. Second time we had to wait a while to get a table. Food was so good, and the entire atmosphere was pleasant. We enjoyed it so much and will go back.

We were a party of 6 and ordered a variety of entrees. All 7 of us were disappointed. The tea was soured and the place was somewhat nasty. I noticed the kitchen area and I was filthy. I will never be back. The waitress didn't keep our drinks refilled and the fish wasn't from the gulf! All around disappointed!

My husband found this place while searching online. When we arrived, we thought google maps had gotten us lost...it's a little behind the "busy" area. The crab cakes are the best we've ever had...and my husband got a crawfish po'boy that was literally overflowing with so much crawfish he could barely eat the bread haha! We also had the smoked...
