The service was good and the location of the restaurant by the ICW where you can see boats go by is great. My husband ordered Ceviche which was out if this world. However, I ordered the catch of the day, which was red snapper and it was not very good. The fish wasn't firm like it should be if fresh.... More

Although I've lived in the area for 25 years, I've only recently "discovered" this restaurant. Food is freshly prepared. On my last visit I had Mahi stuffed with crabmeat with shrimp risotto. Great waterfront views to watch the boats. A great bar, too. Waitstaff is very friendly. Be sure you ask about the resident ghost!

The atmosphere of the place is fantastic. Even if it is close to the water there is not much of a view during lunch because of the shades. However, the decor of the place is very special. We started with the calamari appetizer, as entree we had fish (the fish taco trio and the catch of the day) and the... More

This little tucked away restaurant on the intercoastal is worth the trip. If you love fish, this is the place. Loved, loved the seafood casserole. Daily specials are varied and fresh. Can't wait to go back.

We showed up with over an hour to spare according to their posted hours online. Walked in the door, about 8 or so locals sitting at the bar drinking. We were greeted with "we're closed. our kitchen is closed." When we inquired as to their posted hours, they replied "yeah, we closed early tonight". There aren't many options on the... More

We have eaten here a few times. The seafood as well as the rest of the menu is average. There isn't anything on the menu that has that "wow " factor. The service is good and the restaurant has a fun, haunted history.
