My friends from Delray Beach thought this would be a good place to catch Happy Hour or an early dinner. (We had skipped lunch) They have HH drinks and a buffet 4-6 at the bars. But arriving at 4:30 we were too late to get seats at the bars. The place was packed with white hairs. (That's us... read more

I just got back from Banana Boat and it was great. We had a party of three celebrating an aunts 91st birthday. I ordered the ribeye sandwich. It came out perfectly cooked, warm and tender. My wife had the salmon, it too was done perfectly. The birthday girl, who normally has a small appetite polished off two great sliders, with... More

The view was great, we sat outside and I enjoyed it so much! The blackened mahimahi tacos were yummy, we also got fish & chips which my cousin loves. My husband got a Hugh steak burger, good although he wished it was cooked a little more.

We were 2 families having lunch before Jet Skiing across the street. View of the Intra Costal water is beautiful. Food is very "kid friendly" and waitresses very good. A mix of everything was ordered, fish, chicken ribs - all good.

Great fish selection. Sat overlooking the water adjacent to the bar. Server was very attentive. Busy in a Monday, but well managed.

Enjoyed the wonderful views of the inner coastal activities while enjoying a great meal. My favorite is the fish and chips (light breading and crisp), partnered with crispy fries and cole slaw that is nice and creamy. They also have amazing ice tea to quench any parched thirst. A very relaxing atmosphere. I have eaten outside on the deck, but... More

This is a great location right on the inter-coastal waterway. If drinks are your reason for being there, than this place would have a higher rating for sure. Views and drinks win the day. But if you are here to eat ... well. The lunch portions are plenty and the service is efficient, but if you can't do grouper, a... More

This was a very crowded, very noisy restaurant. Nice views, ample menu with decent food. Parking is difficult although they have valet service. A forgettable experience.

Enjoyable atmosphere at this location by the river. Great outdoor seating. Menu extensive. I chose mahi tacos, not enough fish but tasty and hardly any cilantro but tasty. Good margarita and fabulous burgers. Service cheerful. A busy place so good to reserve.

We usually go to Two George's (right across the dock), but opted for Banana Boat this time. Lunch portions were large, and the food was better than I expected.
