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

Went to the Banana Boat to waste a little tim before we had to be somewhere. Well time we wasted. We sat at outside bard it took like over 10 minutes to get someone to come over to us. Got our drinks than over 15 minutes for them to ask if we wanted to place an order for food.

We have been here before and the food remains consistent. Tonight I tried the lobster quiche. It was tasty and came with fresh fruit. We had the chocolate mousse cake for dessert. Both were good. We sat at the far end away from the band so we could talk.( The band was very good.) Unfortunately sitting by the water a... More

The family went here to eat on vacation last week. The service was good enough and the food was very good. It also has a very cook setting right on the waterway. Boats will pull up to the dock right beside you and unload and come eat. We had a table out on the deck right next to the water... More

I like this restaurant, but on weekends it can be very loud due to noise from bar. Off hours is the best time to go, your chances for a table outside improve greatly. The Conch Chowder and Clam Chowder are excellent. Fried fish is ok, but it may be overcooked a bit. The drinks are good, prices are average for... More
