Although we didn't eat an entree, the items we had were delicious. We had lobster spring rolls & lobster bisque. Beer & wine, and our lite lunch was perfect. They were getting ready to go on vacation and will be closed for two weeks, so check before trying. The atmosphere was a mixture of garage-sale tables & chairs that fit... More

My wife and I had a light lunch at Hognose Snapper after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We each had a cup of their Lobster Bisque, which was outstanding, and I wish I had asked for a bowl instead of a cup! Then we shared some Lobster Spring Rolls, which came with six bountiful rolls and a sweet &... More

This is easily the best casual dining on front beach road in PCB. Pulling up to the restaurant I expected the typical tourist trap beach restaurant, but upon stepping inside my opinion immediately changed. The restaurant has a very warm and homey feel to it. Every single table and chairs is different, there is unique artwork on the walls, and... More

What a great place to visit. I ate there 6 times in my 10 day visit. The Key lime pie was so good I took 6 pieces with me when I went home. Every meal I had was top of the line. Daniel is a great chef. I shopped the menu and almost ate all of the dinner entrees. The... More

Chef Daniel is dedicated to the best ingredients, preparation and service. He bakes all the bread fresh from scratch each morning & whips the real butter for your table. Makes all his sauces (for example, for his 'pico' he's sourced really fine tomatoes from his tomato guy for ten years! 'Chef', as his staff respectfully calls him, is a stickler... More

Overall this is a mediocre restaurant but pay attention to the details of the reviews posted here and you can find a few gems. Specifically the lobster spring rolls and the blackened Mahi sandwich - both were excellent. The fried shrimp was also a pleasant surprise; the breading was light and crispy and not at all greasy. The crab stuffed... More

Another great find from TripAdvisor. Went with our family. The homemade bread was the best, followed by the Lobster spring rolls! Blackened Mahi Mahi was good. But the service was spectacular made us feel at home.

Both the food and service were good. Nothing extraordinary, but a good value and family friendly atmosphere.

I had the blackened mahi mahi, which was delicious and just enough spice to be flavorful. My gf had the shrimp, it was lightly breaded, so there was shrimp and not a ton of batter like at some places. The key lime pie is among the best we've had. Our server Elizabeth was spot on with her suggestions, since this... More

We will not be back after eating fried tomatoes (which were ok) & fried grouper sandwiches The fish was horrible, very dry and greasy, almost like it had been refried. Or waitress was inattentive and offered no hospitality above what was minimally required to get our order. We waited a long time for the food, and we only ate the... More
