Make sure to stroll out on the dock!

The atmosphere here is great - right on the water with gorgeous views and an adorable gift shop. Make sure to go out on the dock and feed the fish for a quarter! The food was good, but I wouldn't recommend the crab legs. Perhaps I got a bad batch but they tasted like they had been reheated one... read more

We arrived to go to dinner only to be met by a nice gentleman that informed us that they were closed temporarily by the health department. Not planning to return anytime soon.

In April, I had lunch with a friend at this very nice restaurant located right on the water (the Indian River). The establishment has been in this location for decades and has had many names. The restaurant is set back from the road a good distance and is nestled in and around trees and tropical landscape. Parking is ample and... More

Great atmosphere food is just ok. I kept thinking how I was overpaying for food I didn't love. Waitress must have attention issues.

Conveniently located on the water in Jensen Beach. They have an Early Bird Menu from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm that has a lot of reasonably priced selections that even include a desert. I especially like the Catch of the Day which can be either Dolphin or Salmon. My wife especially likes their salad bar. They have seating with a... More

A beautiful old Florida atmosphere right on the water. Christine was our server and she was very attentive right there to refill drinks. Food was better than average but not spectacular. They have a great number of early bird specials that are available from 4-5:30. Value for the price very good. And dessert is included.
