Had several items that waitress suggested, very good. Ate our way through the menu. The wife says it was the best key lime pie.

Great food on the water. The "Big Sandwich" is HUGE, like over a pound of meat. They have free parking, but it fills up quickly, so get there early.

It's a great menu and the portions and preparation were decent for the price. We got the batter fried fish and chips and thought the fish and the batter were pretty good. We also got a sandwich and it was HUGE. We sat upstairs on the deck and it was a wierd seating arrangement. The service was acceptable, but I... More

I'll keep it short. Go there the food is delicious, fresh and plentiful. Service and entertainment the best. If you don't go. You will truly be missing a delicious meal. Can't wait to go back.
