Crowd pleaser....

Love it, prime rib night is great!!!!! Service is great and always in a timely manner, even if you have a large crowd, everyone served at once. Have taken 40 there and very happy.

We eat here quite often and never had anything we didn't like. The prices are also reasonable for sea food. The Margaritas are delicious. My favorite is the Salmon with dill sauce. My husband likes the Salmon with Hollandaise sauce. The atmosphere is casual.

Ordered the Captain's Platter. Fish was delicious. Tiny, tiny sea scallops & shrimp were way overcooked. Also ordered Sea Scallop dinner. Scallops were small. I only got 10 on my plate. There was more plate showing than food. We have been frequent customers for 4 years & have noticed a decline in portions. This is one time we were disappointed.

We normally go to the AMOB in Ellenton when in the mood for Seafood closeby. All their restaurants are consistent and they provide Gulf shrimp. I am not a fan of seafood originating outside the U.S. The skillet dishes are a great choice because they are huge and you can spilt an entree into two servings. I like the Garlic,... More

There is usually a wait for this restaurant especially on prime rib or lobster night. But the wait is worth it. The food is excellent. Brian usually waits on us and is the best. The drinks are great. Outside seating is the best when it is cooler. The salads and coconut shrimp are my favorite.

Having eaten at this restaurant in other nearby locations, I chose to eat lunch here, ordering 12 peel and eat shrimp and a Caesar salad. Shrimp were enormous Gulf shrimp (always fresh caught) and were perfectly boiled and seasoned. I know the fried shrimp are excellent, but I try to avoid fried foods. Restaurant is super clean with an excellent... More

I had lunch here and selected their "all you can eat shrimp" with fries and slaw. I've had similar meals many times, at more restaurants than I can remember, but I have to recommend these as the best. They were medium sized shrimp not the small ones you often get for "all you can eat". They were also perfectly battered... More

We ate here tonight. I like the atmosphere such as paper towels hanging over the table. The fried shrimp was nicely breaded. The clam chowder was good. A nice casual dining place right off the interstate.!

I visit this restaurant at least once a month when I'm down in Sun City. In all my visits I have NEVER had bad food or bad service. This is amazing when I think about it, as every restaurant will have their down periods. But not this place. The staff is always friendly and efficient. We have always been promptly... More
