Lively atmosphere, very casual place although valet is available. Outdoor seating is also available overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. A bar and live music outdoors also. Food is average and the place usually has a good crowd of people from all age groups. Enjoyable.

Great food, wonderful ambiance. Really great and unusual choices for adults and kids. Attendees ranged in age from 10 months to 76 years and everyone had a great time.

We went there for dinner with another couple. Three out of the four dinners were not brought out right. Service was lacking and so was the food. We will not be back.

This place is just a great casual place to stop in for a drink, or go the the happy hour. They have great appetizers.

We went to the Banana Boat on Labor day weekend and it was packed. It is a good place to sit outside along the inter coastal and enjoy the water and music as long as you can get a table far away enough from the band so you can still have a conversation. The service was very good and the... More

The sign says, "Since 1978" and the decor doesn't lie - for me, this is a good thing, especially when I am looking for casual waterfront dining. Lots of wood accents and a classic nautical theme with walls of windows overlooking the Intracoastal. I was with a table of six. We were seated immediately upon our arrival and our friendly/enthusiastic... More

The location is nice (waterfront) although seating for view can be difficult, Overall the food and drinks are average and not a great value.

My husband and I love casual waterfront restaurants. This is not one that I would recommend highly. The bar area was enveloped in a smoky haze and surrounded by a VERY drunken crowd. I'm all for a good time, but this night was all wrong...Better luck next time for others, but we won't be back.

Located on the Inland Waterway, Banana Boat has seating (and separate bars) outside and inside, where there is blessed air conditioning. The menu is varied American cuisine and tasty. Most patrons have to use valet parking because space is limited; but keep an eye out for an opening that won't require the valet; or find a space further away and... More
