Fun old Florida experience

This casual seafood grill overlooks the waterway, and is a relaxed and fun way to enjoy an old Florida feel. Boats can pull up to enjoy drinks at the tiki bar. The blackened fish are very good, and so are the catfish nuggets and fish n chips. Nothing fancy but a nice night out.

The meals are good, but the view is excellent. you can sit and watch the boats go up and down the St. Johns from your open air table. a great way to spend your lunch or dinner time.

This place is just awful. The last time we were there was about 6 months ago. The wait was too long to be seated. Then, we had to wait forever for a waiter to bring menus, after that we were treated to a super-long wait for greasy inedible food. While we attempted to eat, we could see a large party... More

This grill has gone through many either ownership changes or cooks, I'm not sure which. The food was tasteless, the place felt dirty, I realize it is a river side type place but it needs a good cleaning. But very nice servers.

We went there for appetizers and drinks, you haveeeee to try the coconut shrimps they were DELICIOUS! The service was great, the girl who took care of us (Shenny, I believed so) was excellent also the guy who welcomed us and the rest of the staff. The environment is nice you can see the lake and boats. We definitely will... More

First visit at the advise of my neighbor, and I'm glad we made it happen. It won't be our last visit for sure. Loved the alligator, potato skins, fried green tomatoes, and that strawberry lemonade. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the crab, lobster, and noodle combo as well. The setting was great with a very nice view of the boating activity... More
