Eat with the Fishes

You have to enjoy the experience of walking out to sea on a pier and sitting down to eat and enjoy the view at the end. Breakfast there if you get the chance, a simple menu but good fare at a reasonable price, beware wait times can be long at busy periods.

We had a wait for a table but apparently this is common. Fish and chip lunch very good and so was the grilled shrimp dinner. Tables somewhat crowded but service good. Kind of a fun place if you enjoy watching people fishing from pier below. Cute but very crowded bar.

Golden gem of a restaurant sits on the ocean with awesome views. While we were eating on the deck a Manatee swam by the dock. The food and atmosphere was great. The waiter we had was like a tour guide he was friendly and funny. This is my favorite place to go for a meal.

We arrived for dinner about 6 pm. We were told there was 1.5 hour wait. Luckily several groups ahead of us left which caused our wait to be an hour. Once we were seated, the food was served quickly. Food was great and the portions where huge.

Our first visit here but I knew what to expect from reviews, a 90 minute wait (prime season)....We like fresh seafood (FL = Mahi, Grouper, Shrimp) and we're fine with no frills and cheap. This is no frills and cheap, a fairly small restaurant on the pier serving a limited menu of fresh fish prepared in basic form with nondescript... More

Fish dinners are excellent, wine is so cheap! Borderline tacky, really nice staff. Its on the end of a short pier, saw manatees from the deck. Fun places, amazing views.

We had lunch on the pier...while we waited for a table, we watched local fisherman and others try their hand and reeling in fish. The food was very good, but the tables are crowded close together.

Our family of four including two teenagers had a great dinner here. Yes we had to wait about forty minutes but the dollar sodas and three dollar drafts helped pass the time. It was fun to hang out on the pier and watch the people fishing. Once we were seated Brett our waiter was quick and knowledgable. We order grilled... More

We found this restaurant the first night of our week in AMI. We went on a Saturday night and it was busy with an hour wait. The nice part was that there were benches along the pier and the time went fast -- we had some drinks while we waited and had a good time watching the people who were... More
