This restaurant/bar is right in the heart of everything. It was very convenient to pick up a sandwich to go and head over to the beach. Food was average, and the price was right. We did eat dinner there as well and it was good and the service was really good.

We were able to dine on the balcony and enjoy a beautiful view and the "flavor" of the area while dining on wonderful food! 3 of us enjoyed martinis and appetizers before ordering entrees. The sun was setting and the atmosphere was festive. The food was very fresh and tasty! The bean cakes and grouper were excellent! Will return to... More

We visited during spring break/Easter week, so pretty much every restaurant was crowded during the week. With that said, we were able to walk in and get seated within minutes, at 6:00PM. The menu is typical American affair, with a Florida flair. Our family of four stayed with burgers, tacos, fish & chips, etc...and the bill still almost came to... More

Had dinner on balcony overlooking gulf. Great view. The cold seafood appetizer was fresh, ample, and very reasonably priced. Lobster claws (shelled), oysters, and mussels were great. Cognac dressing was outstanding. Only thing missing was clams, but the overall presentatation made up for it. Craig was friendly and just attentive enough. Lobster Bisque and dinner was top notch.

We almost left just after arriving because we were completed ignored by at least three staff members upon arrival and that our reservation for an outside table with a beach view was not immediately respected. However, our very skilled server Tom enticed us to say with his friendly welcome and his promise to move us outside at the first opportunity.... More

sitting on a balcony overlooking the gulf and watching the sun descend into the sea without a splash - pretty good way to spend an hour or so and even more enjoyable if the food is good and the wine decent. you can get all of this together with courteous service at this Bistro. careful of the traffic otherwise you'll...

First off the location is excellent and there is plenty of parking in the area. Reservations are highly recommended. The food was fresh and delicious and our server was very attentive to our needs. Would definitely go back.

We went here expecting great things. It was good but not brilliant. The food was lovely but the service a bit slow and not very personal. We hade cancelled our reservation for later this week to go elsewhere
