Good food, great view

A friend and I were looking for a lunch place by the beach after shopping. I pulled into the little plaza just south of the park in Melbourne Beach even though we really couldn't decipher by the sign if there was a restaurant there or not. We walked in and decided to try the upstairs seating even... read more

I just stopped with my cousin to have a couple of cold ones while we watched the surf. His drink was so sweet he couldn't drink it. I ordered some appetizer plates and they were terrible. Calamari was so cooked it was rubber but the sauce was ok the ahi sashimi was fair at best.

Food was good, scenery was beautiful, service was average. My complaint is when I went to the one seater restroom, it was occupied. After waiting forever, the person came out, the toilet still had paper in it (and who knows what else) and the person coming out was a server! And the toilet flushed just fine for me.

This place is great for their casual oceanfront dining. They have a restaurant downstairs and then a restaurant/bar upstairs. We went yesterday and took advantage of the Happy Hour specials. Only $6 for mahi tacos! The view doesn't get any better than this place. They also have buckets of Landshark beer for $15 all day every day. We enjoyed our... More

We were looking for a nice dinner place on the beach. The service was terrible. 😞 I even felt bad for the server and went to get my own wine from the bar during dinner. After 10 minutes of standing there, with no service, I left my glass on the bar and returned to cold food. I ordered the special,... More

We were here for early dinner the day before Mother's Day. Beautiful sunny day on the ocean, comfortable outside on the shaded deck. The physical plant is a little run down, could use some TLC. We wanted seafood, I tried white wine and garlic mussels, at $12 sounded good, but disappointed. The sauce was very neutral, hard to divine either... More
