Service was a treat...these ladies work hard! Great dark and stormy drinks -much tastier than at other restaurants in town...Mussels with in house portugese sausage were delicious, as was the seafood thin crust pizza with artichoke hearts...a wonderful experience on a very busy hot day...Well done!

My wife and I visited the restaurant on recommendation of our son. I had the fish cakes which were excellent. My wife ordered the mushroom pizza and when it arrived it looked terrific. However the rim of the crust was too hard to eat while the center was nearly raw. The topping was delicious. When she mentioned it to the... More

We were a party of 10 and they were very welcoming although the people coming were kinda on top of our table as it was in the entrance. Overall the food was delicious.

When we first arrived, there seemed to be quite a line-up and we assumed we would have a long wait. When I got inside, there was no one to greet us for some time. On server was rushing around madly to clear tables, but when he was finished he quickly say two families and two other couples who had been... More

We aways stop at the Salt Shaker Deli because of the good food and service. Not this time. Maybe the reviews have been their downfall because the experience was awful. We did not mind the wait for the table. However, once seated, it took an hour to get our food. We were told it was due to the pizza one... More

We enjoyed dinner on the patio and the selection of seafood, inventive pizzas and other main courses thoroughly satisfied my family with vegetarian tendencies. We had (and would recommend) seafood chowder, shrimp rolls, calamari, mesa cakes, prosciutto and pear pizza and vegetarian pizza and desserts. Service was prompt and friendly.

We ate here twice and had great meals both times. Excellent seafood and we saw some very nice pizzas at other tables. There was a line up both nights - a good sign.

Not many restaurants to choose from in Lunie, but this place would be great eats anywhere. Really fun setting, great wait staff and excellent micro brew selection. They were totally slammed the night we were there, and yet the staff dealt with it cheerfully and efficiently. Pizza was great, as was lobster pasta dish. Fish cakes could use work though.

Went here for a sunny afternoon lunch and did not regret it! Sat on the patio where there's a beautiful view of the water, and enjoyed a few snacks. For $14 you get a pound of mussels and a pin, both were incredibly tasty. We added with that some bread for dipping and the beet salad, none of which could... More

Greek salad was dull and the dressing overpowering. Tai shrimp wraps mostly consisted of shredded cabbage and carrots wrapped in a cold tortilla. The four shrimp inside were tasty but I was hungry again two hours later.Mushroom pizza had a vinaigrette sprinkled on the top which did nothing to enhance the flavor rather it masked the flavor of the mushrooms.With...
