The service is ungracious, the food regular at most, the atmosphere isn't cozy, at least isn't expansive, if you considere it's on Ocean Drive. But you can find better options.

Four of us stopped here on the recommendation of a friend who ate here a year ago...it turned out to be an excellent choice! We were seated promptly on the sidewalk as we waited for our friends. Three of us ended up having the Fisherman's Platter and the other the Seafood Pasta. The food was excellent - fresh and tasty.... More

We stopped there because we saw the specials ($20 steak, $30 lobster and shrimp). Frankly, I didn't expect much but we were hungry and tired from our long day. I received a 8oz filet for $20 that rivaled steaks from the higher end steak places - honestly it was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth! The lobster/shrimp combo... More

Grouper in a bag, the house specialty, is fabulous. We had a 16 ounce ribeye, the nightly special, for $20 that was a great quality. Great friendly atmosphere, liberal pours on the cocktails. Chris, the owner, greets everyone personally and and the Staff makes you feel like family

Take this for what's it's worth, we just grabbed a quick bite at 2 to hold us till our late dinner, but it was just ok. Though it's on the strip in South Beach it felt more like the sidewalk. Nothing special about the atmosphere. No cool umbrellas or South of France feel here. We wanted Stone Crabs and we... More

Okay, found this place on TripAdvisor and I must say I was warned about the slow service. Dinner for two and it seemed like it took them over an hour to bring out our food. We had to ask the server how much longer and if he could bring out some bread. The crablegs were good and hot when they... More

My cousin recommended this restaurant, and it was awesome! We sat outside and literally watched a never ending car-show on a Sunday evening. Wonderful classic, antique, expensive vehicles paraded by the entire evening as we enjoyed the company of the owner/host (C.J.). The food was excellent (grouper in a bag and fisherman's platter). Drinks were enjoyable, and the ambience of... More
