We went for lunch on a Saturday, and the service was quick and the food was excellent! We had the shrimp taco and the Boca Grouper Sandwich. Very tasty indeed! Our server, Mikel was extremely helpful with our questions on the menu and served our meal and beverages with a friendly attitude! We'll definitely be back!

The restaurant takes shortcuts where possible. For example the rice is often stale, probably cooked the day before. The sushi is mediocre, service inconsistent.

The good was delicious! And the service was great! It is a bit crowded though. They should have built the building a little larger considering the crowd that would flock here. It's a very popular place!

Had dinner here with the family on Tuesday night. Place was very busy and there are tables right when you walk in that are first come, first serve so if you're quick you can jump on one of those. Even though the place was packed, we only waited about 10-15min. My wife had the crusted chicken, which was huge and... More

The service was excellent. The food was fresh and a perfect portion size. The Boca fish sandwich became a fork and knife adventure, but better than missing a drop. The salmon salad was very tasty - one of the nicest salad mixes ever. We didn't try the nachos but saw order after order flying out of the kitchen. Looked like... More

We ate there twice and had excellent food both times. Pretty much everything was top quality. We had tuna bowls which were really great. A fried crab sandwich which was really awesome and some of the best fried grouper we ever ate.

We love salt life so much! We dine here and own about 10 of the tshirts and hats. Everyone loves it. We enjoy the FCFS outdoor seating just before or after the dinner rush. We have been here 20 times over 3 years and always have excellent service, high quality food and lovely evening.
