This delightful eclectic beach bar on Merritt Island is a definite DON'T miss! The owner, a former Army Ranger and his wife Sue, have resuscitated a location that has gone thru a variety of owners. Now, given he and his lady's entrepreneurial background, they have given new birth to a magnificent beach-type bar/eatery at a more than significant riverfront establishment.... More

Casual place. Nothing fancy, but a beautiful view of the river from the patio and excellent food at a great price. Try the blackened fish tacos. Yum!

If you have a boat and want to pull up to the dock for a meal as you are out enjoying a day on the Banana River, this is a lovely place. The food is good, but not great. However, the view is fantastic! Dolphins often chase bait fish in the cove and around the docks. You can often spot... More

Very casual and fun water front bar. Good food, nothing fancy but quality food at reasonable prices. Enjoy the great views of the river and the fresh air eating or drinking under the tiki bars. Good friendly bartenders, good drink/ beer prices. Good place to stop for a couple beers and a burger.

I don't normally give 5s but for this place I do! I enjoyed the fish sandwich for lunch. I did not get the special fish, just the standard stuff. I asked what it was but never heard of that type of fish. Sorry cannot remember. It was meaty and very enjoyable. Try the Angry Orchard hard cider! Outstanding! They had... More

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.
