Lydia S is correct, there is no restaurant at this address. Either the other reviewers didn't notice the bad address or the reviews are a hoax. The Ponce Inlet restaurant is on the water and worth a visit. The have live music on weekends.

Nice place for a quick and casual cocktail and bar food. Great views on the deck. We enjoyed it. Lots of wildlife.

We ate here after a scenic cruise on the Indian River. The fish we had tasted great. The waffle fries were also wonderful and the service excellent. We were right on the water and the view was awesome. I would recommend this to anyone.

We thought this sounded nice but there was something odd about it because we could not find a phone number, menu, website, nothing. The photo also looked like a private home, not a restaurant. We drove by to take a look. It is a residential neighbourhood and I'm pretty sure this is not a restaurant.

Excellent food! Excellent views! Friendly waitstaff. I am so glad we visited this restaurant. It was a wonderful place. My 6 year old loved it and that's saying a lot. We will definitely be back on our next visit!

Wow, sitting by the river! The view is spectacular. Food is wonderful and the staff is terrific. We had appetizers, but the menu has a nice variety.

I spent the evening here after a day on the water with my friends. The food was a great ending to a long day on the water. We were quickly seated and fed (which is what we needed)! It is across the water from the Dissapearing beach if you are looking for it.
