We ate here on the recommendation of one of the traveller's in our party. So glad we did. Our server Steven was excellent. He gave great recommendations and was really polite and attentive without being overbearing. I had blackened crab cakes with shrimp, two sides and a salad. Cost was under $30; I felt this was a great deal for... More

Went there on a recommendation from another couple we met at our hotel. They were right, it was a great local place to eat. Right on the harbor, across from a mariner. Fresh fish was very good, good selection, very good service and a fun place to eat when in the area. We are headed back for a second time... More

We had grilled Mahi for dinner that was excellent. The bread/olive oil/seasonings sets this restaurant a part from others in the area. The entire meal was wonderful. Cannot say enough good things about the food. This was not our first meal at Ernies nor will it be our last. The dining experience is great whether you are indoors or outside.

We stopped by for lunch on the recommendation of my wife's co-worker. We were not disappointed. We ordered one of the daily specials and split it, Grilled Grouper and Shrimp. My wife ordered a side salad. The only disappointment was that it came with 2 little shrimp. The grouper was very nice sized and excellent. Came with 2 sides plus... More

We had lunch here today. I ordered the Fish Tacos with Grouper, the wife ordered the Grouper Sandwich. I got two fish tacos with three or four quarter sized pieces of fish in each one. It really didn't matter though. They used a sickeningly sweet chili sauce on the tacos. That overwhelmed any other flavor you might have in the... More

If you're looking for a special place for dinner, Uncle Ernie's is one of the best places in town. The view is excellent with passing boat traffic and the food is first rate. Get the Pecan Crusted Shrimp appetizer, its one of the best you'll find. If you're not the designated driver, have the Lemon Drop Martini, you will not... More

The key lime pie was excellent. The crab cakes were good. The restaurant had a good atmosphere. We wanted to sit outside but there was a wait.
