I just had 27 people here for a twilight celebration, and it couldn't be more perfect. Assistant General Manager Angie Mumford did a wonderful job setting everything up and service was very professional. Hors d'oeuvres included Swedish meatballs, which were among the best I've had; mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat; cheese platter and crudites. All, on a white cloth-covered table, were... More

Everyone LOVES to bash some of these Restaurants on this site but, I think you have to consider the volume they turn over. You're just not going to please everyone. On this eatery : less then 4% on this site have given it a "terrible" review and reading them (out-of-entertainment) ~most ~ just aren't fair. I used to live in... More

We had a group of 12. Everyone was happy with their choice for dinner. Everything from fish & chips, boiled shrimp, chicken wings to grouper dinner. Desserts were awesome! Waitress was very efficient but could have been a bit more friendly. No smiles! They have inside seating as well outside on the deck. Nice view of the intercoastal waterway -... More

I went there for lunch and was very comfortable when I walked in. The waitress was great. When asked the waitress said she had been there a very long time. That says a lot about the establishment. She was great. It's been a long time since I've had such an attentive and friendly waitress. I hope she is there for... More

We sat outside, on the water, where they have a menu with every item $8. Our group of 7 had quesadillas, burgers, chicken, etc. Everything was tasty. The drinks were good and the chocolate lava cake delicious. A very nice time with good food and great view.

Our waiter asked what we would like to drink. My sister asked for a chilled glass of wine and I a Vodka Gimlet up. The waiter replied... More
