I can also see the beautiful white sands and emerald green water of the gulf coast while dining. Food: Baked stuff grouper is to die for! Crab legs... More

Sitting on the Deck on a cold November Day a great view and dining experience. Had the hot SheCrab soup and did encounter a few sea gulls but mostly they just watched us. Key lime pie the best we had on our trip. We looked out onto an empty beach and pier. Even bundled up it was still lovely.

The food and service was also good and reasonably priced. Can access beach from restaurant. I think I have more than 50 characters but keep getting the red message that I need to say more.

Big group of us on Monday night and it was a beautiful sunset. We sat inside and enjoyed the view, but outside is great for smaller parties. All our food was great. She crab soup delicious, seafood, and a few kids even enjoyed spaghetti :) It was a great experience. Great service too.

The view is great and I have no complaints about the service. Our server was great. The food was a definite let down. I think the food is overpriced and the quality was unfortunately lacking.

We took a group of 16 people to this nice place. Our server, and I'm sorry I didn't get her name, couldn't have been more efficient! The food was good, the atmosphere..everything. As a bonus there was a young women from the local military base there with friends celebrating her birthday...once we found out...we all broke into a happy birthday... More

Food was very good. Had raw oysters to start which were good size. They recognized they had shorted me one and brought out three more. Crab legs were great.

My partner and I dropped by the back porch for a late lunch. Service was slowwww. Patrice was busy chatting. He ordered chicken sandwich and soup, the first soso and the soup good. I had a burger. She brought it without the requested condiments and before getting them resumed her chatting. As the food grew cold, I became impatient so... More

One of the typical large beachfront tourists restaurants that many folks like, but too noisy for us. We attended as a group of 15 or so, but would not go back as a couple. Nice view of beach. Food was OK, and service was good, but typical of mass produced food in such a restaurant. Usual array of novelty gifts,... More
