Highly recommend the Mac and cheese with truffle oil...FABULOUS! Right across from the pier and walking distance to two scoops!

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!

My husband and I chose to eat here during our vacation on ami. Some local shop owners recommended it and we looked at the reviews on tripadvisor. We had a reservation, was greeted nicely.by the hostess and our server was excellent. The food was very good. We eat out a lot and are very particular...this doesn't deserve the bad reviews... More

We have eaten here numerous times and have always had excellent food and great service both inside and on the veranda. We have had to wait for a table at times; but the bar provided us with adequate (LOL) libations to keep us "happy". It is somewhat pricey (between $$$ and $$$$); but the food is delicious.

Nice restaurant right next to the pier. Ate here twice during our week on the island. Food was excellent both times and service was perfect. Would highly recommend!
