A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.

This is by far one of the best seafood restaurants with unusual recipes! We were given a sample of alligator tail which I was thrilled to try...tastes just like chicken! I had the grilled scrod with mango sauce, it was wonderful as was my husband's bourbon shrimp. Al, the owner is very personable, you feel like you've known him for... More

We went to the Moorings for the first time last night as part of a birthday party for a neighbor. Decor is "old florida" and very friendly atmosphere. Al, the owner, treats strangers like old time friends and lives to chat. Tara and Tim were great hosts. We had a real nice time and the food was wonderful. You have... More

We had an excellent dinner here. Before the main course they served us cole slaw and seasoned breadsticks which were so tasty. They also gave us free samples of shrimp appetizers. Then came the main course of a variety of very fresh seafood all prepared in a delicate but zesty seasoning. The desert was to die for too. The waitress... More

I had family in from Portland, Oregon and wanted to try to a new seafood place with them. We were welcomed by the owner and had absolutely incredible service from Lindsay-- I don't think I've ever had a better server anywhere. I had the trio of scallops, shrimp, and crab cake-- so delicious, fresh, light, and flavorful-- and at a... More

Do not miss it, you should go, great food, service and environment, you feel like you are in another country, on a fishing cute town. Try it and you will not regret and will spend just a little money.
