I went there last month while on vacation and didn't think the food was that great and the services was pretty crappy. I would not visit this place again.

We have passed this restaurant often but had never stopped. It was EXCELLENT. Sybil was a terrific server and very knowledgeable, when asked how something was prepared or the ingredients of entrees. The food was great. I had the shrimp & scallop au gratin and my friend had the haddock. More than ample amounts served. This meal was better than... More

This has a beautiful view of the lagoon and the food was absolutely amazing. I've been there a few times now and haven't been let down. I always order something different, but I most love the seafood. I highly recommend going around Halloween; they decorate everything (even the bar!) so the whole family is entertained. I'm local and always love... More

The service was rather slow, but, the wait staff were wonderful and apologetic that we had to wait. They were very busy. We sat outside on the porch overlooking the water. All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We shared an appetizer of seafood melt which was very good. I had Shrimp Allegro which was on the menu for... More

Our serrver Jade was so helpful with information and recommendations. The swordfish was wonderful and my wife's scallops and shrimp were very good. There will likely be a return visit before we return home from this vacation.

We always enjoy having lunch on the porch to view the serene Indian River scenery. This time we had softshell BLT, house salad and oyster po' boy sandwich. it was all delicious. I recommend not using the red sauce on the po'boy. The sauce on it is great. The staff was very attentive.

I had the fried seafood platter and though there was good variety and portions, the batter was exceedingly thick. Clam strips obviously prepared off-site because the coating was completely different than everything else. Friends had baked scrod and crab cakes. I didn't try but it looked good. Service was excellent.

Fun lunch with relatives yesterday. Dined at a leisurely pace with appropriate attention from the waitstaff. Seafood was fresh and flavorful. Outside porch was a great setting on a perfect day. The facility is reminiscent of "old" Florida. Good value.
