Our food sat in kitchen till cold. And very over cooked. Scallops and grouper chewy/lukewarm at best. Cole slaw was over sauced and second cousin to baby food.... More

The soup was fantastic but at 5.99 a bowl it was sticker shock. My husband had stuffed talibut and it was very fishy. He had a salad which was nothing special and homemade blue cheese and it was runny and average. I had the lobster wrap and it was average. I had green beans for a side and they could... More

We were very upset about the service here. The waitress was rude and never smiled. She acted as if we were a bother to her. Other waitresses appeared to also be unfriendly.

We visited on the recommendation from some friends who were traveling with us. They are incredibly picky eaters, so we tend to visit places that they like so we don't run into challenges. That being said, I felt that the food was a bit on the average side. I do like that they offered all seafood selections to be either... More

The conch fritters are almost as good as in Key West. The dining room overlooks a small marina and river which always seemed to be a hub of activity.

When the wife I are want seafood, we normally end up here. The restaurant is very well lite and the seafood is always good. My wife loves to get the Stone Crab claws when they are in season. I love the fried oysters. They have indoor and outdoor seating with views of the bay. I would recommend reservations if you... More

The soft shell grabs were fantastic, out of this world. However also had fried shrimp and fish and onion rings, and these were only OK. Server was very good and friendly. Prices were high for portions and quality. Would go back again but only for the soft shell grabs.

We had the grouper, stuffed shrimp both were delicious! A great value as well and the place is located with a beautiful view of the river. The staff was great.

The food was okay...it comes plain, with salt and pepper upon request. If you like seasoning this may not be the place for you. Our server was friendly. For the price, I expected a little more ambiance.
