We are wending our way home after a cruise from Port Canaveral and stopped here for lunch. The place is a perfect seaside seafood joint with a live band and very very good food. Had the pesto grilled shrimp tacos. Catch of the day was black grouper, which we had blackened. So very good! Can't wait to travel through again.... More

We'd been looking forward to trying the GL, after friends' input and a bunch of great reviews. Went there yesterday for lunch. The food was ok, but the service was a total, complete disaster. We should have taken the hint., when strangers at the next table told us "good luck" when they left. The place was ~75% full, at ~1pm... More

Excellent food and great music. The restaurant offered rooftop dining so the view would have been excellent. We sat on the first floor to better hear the music.

This is the spot on the beach that you enjoy friends with live music and drinks. Beach front of course. However, they bribe you with a free appetizer if you go online and vote them number 1. They are supposed to be known for the fish and chips. Wife and I have tried to go here on three different occasions... More

We stopped in for a seafood dinner after a day at the beach, the staff was great, the service was outstanding. Our food was mouthwatering and we received more in portion than we had expected. Make sure you try the Key Lime Tarter Sauce........it is excellent! Purchase you a bottle before you leave
