We arrived at 7:50pm and Happy Hour ended at 8pm. The bartender was great about serving us our drinks and pre ordering another round for us so we would have with our meal. We all ordered an entree which was very good but a bit overpriced. This used to be a packed restaurant and there were just a few people... More

Had dinner the night before our cruise here. The food is fresh and delicious. Prepared perfectly. We sat outside on the canal where the yachts pull in for a bite. Had a long romantic dinner. I signed up for emails and we got something free.

My wife and I enjoy visiting this bar - the outside bar is good - usually a good crowd - very friendly and excellent barman (Tim) who makes us feel welcome all the time - in fact he makes everyone feel welcome. Not too pricey, the bar food is good and we enjoy it.

Went with friends for Sunday brunch. Have to say the food was fair at best. There was a singer who was good but where our table was located made talking to each other almost impossible. That said if you go ask to be served by Denny. He made every effort to please and was engaging and funny to boot. Great... More

The wife and I stopped in for a couple of drinks and appetizers. The hostess and waiter were both great and very nice. We sat outback on a finger inlet overlooking the water and some condos which didn't take away too much from the setting. We ordered a couple of appetizers and greatly enjoyed the lightly breaded calamari and the... More

I had eaten here a few years ago and was looking forward to dining here again. Not sure if it was an off night but the service was lackluster and the food flavorless. A hit on the prior visit were the conch fritters. Not so on this visit. There was no flavor. Also had the yellow snapper which was OK.

Had dinner dockside on a pleasant September evening. Scenic, relaxing atmosphere. Blackened salmon was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Wait staff pleasant and attentive. Would definitely return.

Went for light dinner-had shrimp cocktail and Caesar salad, other guest had salad and shrimp cocktail. Caesar was very mild on flavor, regular salad had only one slice tomato. Shrimp cocktails were four per order. Bimini bread a little over-rated but good. Beautiful setting and great staff. Tom was very attentive and fun.

We met for a mini high school get together, about 25 people. Due to the numbers, Bimini made a 4-choice menu. The choices were their great burger, with all the fixings and home made chips, Salad Diane, Chicken Ceasar Salad, or Mahi Sandwich. We ordered all of those among us, as well as delicious Bimini Bread. Everyone really liked their... More

Our appetizers came out 20 minutes after ordering, and they were cold -- obviously they sat out for quite some time before being brought to the table. The calamari was horribly soggy and chewy, and the conch fritters were dry and devoid of conch! They brought our dinners right after bringing the appetizers, and the food was also cold. The... More
