its your basic outdoor bar with food

loved the outdoor atmosphere on the water. This has a younger crowd compared to Two George's across the waterway what I mean by younger is 20-30's compared to 35-50's. Both have the same kind of food , similar places but the music here is great!

It was a busy weeknight during the season and they said 'one hour' for a table. My [somewhat pushy] cousin walked into the dining area and saw lots of apparently available tables so asked if we could be seated sooner. They did accommodate her request, but then the problems began. Our waiter was new at this type of pretty demanding... More

Two visits here this past month. The food is good. The prices are fair. The atmosphere pleasant. The service? Excruciatingly slooooow. So will not repeat.

This was the first restaurant I ever ate in when I came down to Florida. The view is amazing. You can sit outside and watch the boats come and go. You never feel hot (I have been there in August) because they have outdoor fans and the breeze off the water. Plus the entire area is covered. The feel is... More

This is a standby for a good time. The atmosphere is really nice. You have a good view of the intracoastal and the beautiful bridge. The food is ok and the drinks are good.

The Banana Boat is terrific - delicious food, something for everyone, and on the water - you can't beat it. It's got the nice old time FL feel, open and airy, with great seats outside for a fabulous water-side meal. Friday through Sunday there is a band playing at night, a little loud but overall nice environment. Salads are terrific,... More

Fun location on the waterway offering happy hour specials and full bar. Appetizers were decent and average priced. Dinner wasn't as good. Ordered Maine lobster dinner and it arrived cold at the table and starting at me. The sides were mixed up and took the waiter awhile to correct. The waiter also made no apologies for erros but only stated... More

I was bopping around town last weekend while my wife was at a baby shower, and decided to stop in here for a quick bite at lunchtime. Although I could see it was busy, and many were looking to eat at the same time as I, I did not want to sit at the bar on this occasion. I opted... More
