My wife and I finally hand a chance to visit this restaurant today. Drove by a month ago with the intention of dinner but the lot was so packed we held off for a slower time. Considering how much waterfront property we have in the area, there are very few restaurants and bars which take advantage of the view. This... More

This interesting little place is right on the water so be sure to visit before it turns dark. The seafood gratin was superb. Prices are very reasonable. Atmosphere is casual and it is obviously a favourite spot for locals which speaks volumes for the restaurant.

This amazing restaurant, located right on the water, provides a spectacular view of the intercoastal waterway and an excellent atmosphere. The food is always well prepared and fairly priced. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They enjoy working there. Highly recommend this place.

Our first time there and they made us feel very welcome. The server was very attentive without crowding us. The food was awesome and was hot and quick. Was not planning on staying for the band, but they were so good and stayed till the end!!

Great food, service and location. And a old fashioned fried Bologna sandwich for $2.25! Who can beat that? Drinks are great too.

We stopped by for lunch and actually passed the spot because it's off the side of the road. First let me say that the customer service here is excellent! The lunch was fantastic and the price unbeatable! We ate at a Nationally know chain restaurant in Daytona and paid twice the amount for a meal we left on the table.... More

Great view! We stopped in for lunch after going kayaking down the road. I was surprised by the reviews about the service. We had a great server, Tyler, who made wonderful suggestions and the meal hit the spot.

Sits right on the Banana River with awesome views of the water from everywhere. Great local bands perform. Food is fresh and delicious. Servers (all of them) are... More
