I'm surprised to see comments about the staff being rude and the long wait times. My boyfriend and I visited this location last night and quickly deemed it our favorite restaraunt on the island. Our waitress Chanel was very friendly and attentive. She went above and beyond to make sure we (and the table next to us) were enjoying our... More

We chose this restaurant because it offered many gluten free options. The waitress was very knowledgable and helpful with the menu. The food was delicious and you couldn't have asked for a better view while eating in the outdoor space.

We had visited the area in January and wanted to go but we were side tracked. This time we made sure to visit based on the rating we saw on trip advisor. It was worth the wait, we started with the tuna sashimi followed by the grouper tacos and the blacken salmon. We enjoyed everything. As it was for lunch... More

When we arrived the waitress said there was no space for us all but she could seat the children separately . That was fine, as... More

Critiques are always welcome and appreciated, however I do feel a need to clarify a few of the comments in this review. The party was seated, as stated, at two tables at 8:41. Three of the adults at the 7 top did not arrive for another 15 minutes. The kids table ordered their food at 8:41, all relatively simple and... More

We took our family here. We had a very nice bottle of wine, sampled three appetizers, and had five different entrees. We also had several desserts. Everyone truly enjoyed their meal and we all enjoyed our dining experience here.

Have been here a dozen times or more. Great kids menu. Awesome atmosphere. Got to watch the cruise ships under the sunshine bridge. The food is the best in town

We were wintering in Bradenton Fl and visiting the island one afternoon and stumbled on the waterfront restaurant. We had such a wonderful lunch that a few weeks later we took friends to the waterfront for dinners the dinner was even better than the lunch.mgreat food, a little pricey but worth every cent

Be sure to have reservations(even in August) for this gem of a restaurant. We had to settle for a 6PM dinner as the place was booked solid the rest of the night. The locals know this is the place for a perfect ribeye or shrimp and grits to die for. Wine list is not pricey, views of the beach and... More

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a rainy day with our 8, 7 & 3 yr old girls. Food was outstanding and the service was excellent! Will be back again for sure!
