Best outside seating experience in the area. Not right on the water, but food is excellent and service is very friendly.

Wonderful little restaurant with fabulous food. Both lunch and dinner offer many outstanding choices. They are known for their Lobster Mac and Cheese and it's good, however we love the Lobster Club Sandwich and the Key Lime Pie is like none you have ever eaten - as well as the Peanut Butter Pie. Can be crowded - it is very... More

This is a favored place by locals, usually a bit of a wait. We waited 30 minutes for a table, which wound up being a high top in the bar area. My wife and I each ordered off the appetizer menu and added soup. I got the shrimp & grits (3 shrimp) and she got the fried oysters. Our daughter... More

We had the Fish of the Day sandwich, which was Mahi. There were several side choices - fries, coleslaw, cheese grits, and fruit. I got the cheese grits and I loved them.... More

By far one of the best if not the best restaurants in the area. You will be surprised at the quality of the food coming out of the kitchen, great taste and great presentations! The lobster mac n' cheese is awesome, the lobster dinner is great and priced very reasonable, the scallops are great, in fact every meal I've ever... More

Definitely one of our favorite spots in all of the Vero Beach/Ft. Pierce area. Deceiving from the outside but 5 star food on the inside. A bowl of clam chowder is a meal in itself. The tuna is divine and the scallops are the best around. Friendly and efficient waitstaff. Only downside is that they don't take reservations and most... More
