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

This is a nice little find if you are in the Deerfield Beach, FL area. I stopped in for lunch, on a Wednesday. The service was great. It has a nice bar, great maritime and seafood feeling, along with wall art, as well as atmospheric outdoor cafe style seating, especially for being in a strip mall.

This is a very busy restaurant and food quality is good - a strong commendation for such a large and busy place. That said, our service experience was lacking. The waitress was friendly and pleasant, but she disappeared for over 20 minutes during which we wanted to order more drinks and bread (they have great bread)! We eventually ordered directly... More

We have driven by this restaurant for years, but what a surprise when we decided to try it for dinner. The outside dining area is tropical and protected. We went on a cool day and it was cozy and inviting. The Mahi Mahi sandwich was delicious and cooked perfectly. The Philly cheesesteak sandwich made with chicken was huge and excellent.... More

I've been here a dozen times and always have excellent food and service. A very clean and friendly place with a local maritime flare! Go once, and you'll be a forever fan like my family is!
