This restaurants view is awesome. The place is very clean and the food is great. the drinks are delicious. The breeze on the balcony is very calming. May be a bit pricey to some people. Definitely recommend to try at least once!

I have a Joe's where I live, but this one seemed far better. The food selection seem better with better prices. Staff was great they took care of our large group. If I was in Jacksonville I would eat their again.

It turns out that we had one side of the table seeking super-spicy seafood while the other side wanted no spice whatsoever. I, being on the spicy side, ordered the Cajun and my husband ordered the extra-Hot. Mine was spicier than his, but neither had any real "kick." We were fine with eating it anyway, but the restaurant gave us... More

Below average food. Not even as good as other franchises we've visited. It's a shame because this is one of the best locations. Please don't eat here for the food. The service is okay. It's a fun atmosphere for kids. Not so much for anyone else. The prices are vet high and even though they are right on the ocean... More

The only good thing about this restaurant is that it's on the ocean and there are very few places to eat at the beaches with ocean views. The food is awful and the drinks are overpriced. The service is a bit below average and the turnover very high. Unfortunately when visitors come they want to go to a casual place... More

Service is horrible. We waited 1.5 hours for our food after ordering. Food tastes like it's from Captain D's. Eat there next time! It's cheaper and the service is better!!
