Portions small but the view is "to die for."

Without the view, this would be an over-priced restaurant with small portions. However, the food is good, if not generous and the view of the water is superb. Fried shrimp and oysters are reliable and the burgers aren't bad. Avoid the fish of the day, which is an asian catfish often found on the... read more

We are locals and have eaten here twice, mainly because it is the "nicest" restaurant nearby. The first time, we enjoyed our experience but partly because of the clueless server, who literally knew less than we did about the menu. Fortunately, we are capable of reading the menu ourselves and thought it made for a hilarious memory. Recently, we went... More

We enjoyed lunch watching the boats pass by on the intra-coastal canal. The mahi mahi and shrimp were worth the drive.

Oysters on half shell were good! ( Came after salads) Homemade salad dressing excellent! Our party had seafood platter (all fried), blacked red snapper (fresh and tasty, $26 and they added a sauce with crab patty for another $4.99 which wasn't needed), shrimp and grits with a spicy sauce and fried shrimp ( heavy coating) $21. Service was good. We... More

We ate out on the deck and the view was great. we even saw dolphins swimming and jumping. Hair in the salad dressing. Small portions. Husband only got half of what he ordered. They took it off the bill but it was just too many mistakes. We won't go back.

There are many good seafood restaurants in Perdidio Key, but if you want a nice place on the water with white table clothes and fine wine. this is the place for you. Yes, the seafood was excellent.

We shared the seafood platter. It well prepared and sufficient for 2. Others in our group were disappointed in the oysters, both raw and roasted. The view was nice.

Just from the very beginning the manager and hostesses treated us like we were not welcome. My mom is in her 80's and when they spoke to her they practically yelled, like they thought she could hear! But at the end of the day, in my opinion, the food should be the most important - Its awful, not fresh at... More

My husband and I had dinner here based on the recommendation of our rental company, advising they had the "BEST" fried shrimp in the area and I have to say they were right. There were 12 plump perfectly fried shrimp that were delish. We had a small wait in the bar, with a good glass of wine. TIP........don't fill up... More
