We were not happy with food or service. Confusion & unprofessional communication between service staff. Shrimp were not properly cleaned. Sat outside on intercoastal but not really a great view. Very disappointing visit.

Stopped by for dinner, and was seated quickly. Beautiful view right on the waterway. Service was prompt and friendly. Had the grilled grouper special with fries and baked mac & cheese. The food was superb! Look forward to returning on my next trip!

First timer, waiter was Steve. weekday late afternoon we just missed the lunch rush. Place was quiet and overcast. The waterfront is the intercoastal, nice scenery. We ordered conch fritters (they were very yummy), and fry baskets - shrimp and scallops as well as shrimp and clams. The seafood was awesome! Really enjoyed the food. Downside....the more food we received... More

The food was good, service could have been better. Sitting right on the water was nice and relaxing. The prices were fair.

went here a couple days ago. With some friends, food was great, had the buffalo shrimp wrap and alligator ribs. a plethora of fish tacos were served. My only gripe was the service was kind of slow, and they weren't very busy. Return imminent. The gator ribs were phenomenal.

Whenever we eat here it is difficult to choose what to eat because there are so many amazing options.
