We had a hot dog and fries and a couple of drinks for around $27. The service was good but the experience was kind of let down when at the end he asked us where we were from and found out we were from the UK and insisted on the tip of 15%. I don't know if people from the... More

If you like your food fried, two or three times, overpriced and are happy to wait 30 minutes for someone to bring water then this is the place for you! Honestly.... avoid this place if possible. It's cheaper to get better food and service down the road a few miles. You're paying for the convenience of the beech not for... More

We enjoyed a great lunch here along with fabulous adult beverages. Outdoor sitting is terrific though a bit toasty in June. Still they have a covered deck with ceiling fans to keep the air moving.

This is a great breakfast and lunch place with the freshest seafood and a great view of the Biscayne Bay. It is a very simple place with outdoor seating surrounded by lots of vegetation and sand. It is inside of a state park so you need to pay an entry fee to access the park and the restaurant. Prices are... More

The food here is not bad and the prices are reasonable. The french fries were a bit undercooked for my taste though. The sangria was very good and the staff was friendly.

If you come to Bill Baggs Park and want to grab a bite, the price was right and the watermelon juice was a refreshing surprise on a hot day.

The view from the deck is very nice. The food was pretty good, but a little overpriced. Wait staff seemed to have limited English, so there were some language issues in ordering. They have seafood, burgers, fries, hot dogs, popcicles, and fresh juice. There was an adjoining shop where it looked like beach necessities were available. I believe this is... More

Located in cape Florida state park, overlooks hidden harbor. Beautiful site and a good place to catch a snack or meal after a bike ride. Decent menu but a bit pricy. Wait staff not overly helpful. Food is decent
