Typical Beach Bar, but on the end of a canal. Big outside open air Bar. Sand for the kids to play in. Accessible by boat - a big plus! Food was pretty typical "beach bar food" - good but not great - but people don"t come here for the food. Band music on weekends (maybe more?), cold beer, and water... More

If you book ahead, you can dine upstairs but you can just walk in to the ground floor restaurant. Choice of food was excellent and staff were most attentive. It was so good, we dined there every night of our stay.

Our fish tacos were made with grouper fish, very fresh, broiled and delicious. Lots of good fish. Thin flour tortilla was crisp and tender (nice crunch). Spicy sauce. Salads were very good as well. Service was very good. Ice cream store within walking distance after lunch.

Weekday lunch for two couples on Boca Grande. Pretty location, charming dark wood interior. Accomodating, friendly service. We had the Chilled Lobster & Shrimp Salad Roll with Steak Fries. Overpriced ($29) for what must have been thawed seafood mush. Much better in Maine!! Go for the ambiance and drinks. Food is mediocre.

We ate here in March after staying in Boca Grande for a few days & found this restaurant to be charming & well worth your money- for lunch or dinner. Great variety of appetizer, food & drink choices. Hard working wait staff. We visited with our therapy dog & sat outside on the patio, where it was fun to people... More

Tip: if you call to make reservations, you will sit upstairs - which is a more "formal" setting. It isn't formal, but it's more reserved than the pub type of atmosphere downstairs. The large pink elephant is upstairs though, which is fun! Downstairs and the patio is first come, first serve - no reservations. We arrived at 6p on Sunday... More

This is a great place for any meal. You can sit outside with sandy toes or enjoy a special meal inside. Very good!
