This restaurant offer great food, service, and view. It is very relaxing place to have dinner, especially after being on the water all day. I had blackened grouper, it has my seal of approval.

A great day on the water with dinner on the water. Couldn't ask for better!! In case you didn't know, you can always bring in your catch if your day on the water included fishing!! More

We went for lunch last Sunday and ordered from the early bird special. Prime rib, potato, salad for $11.95, heck of a deal. Unfortunately we had a half order of their incredibly big onion rings (they are great and as usual our stomachs over rides our brains), so although the dinner was great, we were so full neither of us...

The view is second to none. The food is always good and freshly made. A nice variety of seafood and meat without over doing the selections. If you want something that isn't on the menu, just ask. The adult beverages are outstanding.

This is an average restaurant. They are located on the water which is nice. No booths, only tables. I ordered the rib-eye steak along with crab legs. I asked for medium rare and got well done. Also the crab legs were not fresh and difficult to get out of the shell. The key lime pie was good. If you are... More

Hi Tim, thank you for taking the time to review us. I apologize if your dinner wasn't correct. I will discuss the steak with the cooks. As far as the Alaskan snow crab is concerned, that does comes in frozen, as all snow crab does. If you ever have an issue, please let us know about it right away so... More

We arrived on a recommendation for an early dinner; 4:30. We were seated at a table in an empty restaurant next to a couple with two very young, and ill mannered children. I asked to be moved slightly further down in order to be able to have a business conversation without interruption. The hostess shot me an "eat it" look,... More

I do apologize for your experience. I can assure you that we don't discriminate between locals and tourists when handing out earlybirds. I am not making excuses for anyone as it may have very well been me that forgot to hand out the earlybird. I will however address this all of this with the other hostesses. I hope that if... More
