Not as good as usual. I had a rueben sandwich, which included sourkraut. It was good, but the saurkraut was so wet that it "melted" my bread and I had to eat it with fork and knife. It would be better if they drained the saurkraut before putting it on the sandwich. Service today wasn't as good as usual. My... More

We encourage all of our guests to let the wait staff know if their meal is not to their liking. We would have been happy to redo the sandwich for you. If you ever feel that you are not getting prompt service, please get the manager on duty and they will assist you. More

We loved this place. We got the coconut shrimp and some fish. It was so good we went back the next night! This place is very lively and would be great with friends. They've got great specialty drinks. Be sure to ask for the bread.

This place has been here for a very long time and continues to deliver a fun atmosphere, excellent servers and fabulous seafood. You can dine in or out. Although in a typical South Florida strip center, you feel as though you are in the keys. Happy hour drinks until 7 pm. One of two places in the area that I... More

We called the restaurant at about 6 PM on Sunday night and asked for a reservation. We were told reservations weren't necessary and that if we came over soon, there wouldn't be a wait. Our hotel was nearby, so we left shortly and arrived within 15 minutes of our phone call, at which time we were told there was a... More

We will remind the staff about our customer service standards and use your experience as an example. As for the food, please let your waiter or the manager on duty know if your meal is... More

I think the place survives simply on ambiance....and drunk patrons who can't tell the difference. Everything is just okay, from food to lackluster service. The decor is Key West overboard in the middle of a nondescript strip mall. If you wanna waste a few hours and money of your life waiting for mediocre food, spend it here. Or actually go... More

This apparently is a popular local spot, which you can tell it has been there a long time. We had a very large party and had to wait a long time even with reservations, but once we were finally seated the staff went out of their way to please and we were served quick. The drinks were delicious. The food... More

This is a local hang out with great food and a nice atmosphere. Lots of sports, trivia, or you can simply sit outside and enjoy the swings around the tables. Service is adequate, but the staff is very friendly. My favorite item on the menu was the lemon pepper wings. Mthey are crunchy, tangy and delicious.

We stop by Muddy Waters probably once a month or so, it's not the easiest place to find but it's fun. Outside you'll find a lush homage to Florida with a 'pond', foliage, and the occasional cameo from Ruby the McCaw and her friends, both wild and tame. The rocking tables are fun, and since we usually have kids in... More
