Food was great, with a good variety and reasonably priced. A most pleasing atmosphere overlooking the water. They were very busy on a Monday night, so it did take a reasonable amount of time to actually get our food....but well worth any wait time.

We ended up in the back room. I can appreciate that we had kids with us but you could not hear past the person you were sitting beside. The waiter was a bit sarcastic and a bit too flippant with his comments. Wine expensive and food was good. Nice meal but would not return.

Went there on a Saturday night in late March. Called about 7 pm and was able to get reservations for an 8:15 pm dinner. I had the best salmon ever. My friend enjoyed her lobster tail also. As we had a few drinks at the pool that afternoon, we decided on sodas only for our beverage. As soon as he... More

We were lucky enough to get a window table, with a great view of the inland waterway. Food was excellent, cooked just right. Wine list is extensive, with prices for every budget. Friendly staff, willing to spend that extra moment to talk. If you are going, be sure to make a reservation.

Great value for excellent food. Had lunch on the patio, overlooking the intercostal waterway, featuring excellent live entertainment. A must to reserve for lunch or dinner!!

Tried this before several years ago and didn't care for it but the parking lot is always packed so we thought maybe we had just caught it on a bad night. So we gave it another try and twice is enough. Regulars may get good service but we were very disappointed in the wait staff and the food. Overcrowded, over... More

Average early bird menu with small portions. Meal comes with small salad, small main course, and small desert. Nice selection of beer on tap. Nice view if you are lucky to get a table near the water. Seemed a little rushed by waiter but I guess they want to sit the big spenders down. Chef seems to cook the meat... More

Very nice place but our dinners were expensive and not exceptionally good. Ribeye was about 25% fat and the filet mignon wasn't very tender. Nice view from the deck and the valet parking was awesome. Apparently a very nice "early bird special" but we couldn't seem to get there.
