Another good time

We come here often with friends and always have a good time. Great burgers, salads, and fish dishes. Happy hour at the bar works also

My bride and I chose this place to announce who was going to be her bridesmaids for her wedding. We didn't make reservations for a large group but both girls at the greeting desk accommodated us. They sat us outside where we could see the water which was really nice. The server was thorough and nice. She made sure we... More

We were looking for a place to eat and thought we would try Banana Boat. We started off with a French onion soup which was not only extraordinary, but there was more than enough to share. We also tried the lobster, shrimp and avocado salad. It was very fresh and cold and there was seasonal fruit in the salad, like... More

Fantastic service. Good food, if a little pricey. The Coconut Banana Creme Pie was a wonderful dessert. They have live entertainment on their patio during the weekends, so it can get loud outside.

The Banana Boat sits on a narrow waterway of the Indian River. I recommend the location on the patio for its peaceful and tranquil setting. We ate at the BB for lunch. Our appetizer was fried calamari, which had a nice spicy tang from the hot pepper salsa. My main dish was the Philly cheesesteak. All was flavorful. The restaurant... More

First time there for me. Probably will not go back. Since it was to hot to sit outside we sat inside. The bar area is very loud. The food was average and the portions seemed small.

Relaxing late luncheon on the deck overlooking the Inland waterway. Had the lunch special, Mahi Ruben sandwich which was excellent along with the exceptional service made this a destination we will come back to.

The food is just 'o.k.' at the Banana Boat restaurant. The ambiance is very pleasant. When they are not crowded the service is fine.

Wound up here after leaving Two Georges right across the way. Much better crowd atmosphere etc. good laughs at the bar. Young old didn't matter. Seemed to me this is the better of the two. I enjoyed it much more. Came back and met some friends who also were in the area. They enjoyed it also.

Thank DS355
