Some one needs to teach them how to make oyster rockerfeller. Not very good at all. The grilled oysters were dry and needed some seasonings. We have been before and really enjoyed it so maybe they were having an off night. The staff was friendly and helpful. The salad and pie were good. It is a pretty place to watch... More

PKOB. has the best views sitting above the intercoastal. During day times warmer weather you will see Dolphins swim by. Watch all the boats and people sail past, Food is good. Crab claws here are very good. Always ask their size. Here size does matter. Interior is well lite, seems like at night it all changes to a romantic feeling.... More

I’m thrilled to report the ship has been righted! One of my favorite restaurants at the beach, and one of the best, has fixed the poor service and lower food quality we encountered last year. It’s back on track offering the terrific food and great service we were used to. Our service was professional, seamless and on time, and a... More

It had been awhile so we thought we'd try it again. Bottom line: Overpriced and overrated. Nice views, mediocre service, tired decor and 2 out of 4 meals nearly inedible. The Special was Not. Stuffed red snapper was so overcooked, the edges were like shoe leather. Saving Grace-the wine was good. Suggest you spend your money across the road at... More

Started out with half dozen oysters on the half shell. Very tasty and fresh. Assortment of condiments to go with the oysters, such as a tasty horseradish. Two meals, noonish, had to wait 20 mins. After having the meal, found out why such a wait. Delicious as well as the place was packed. We had the broiled seafood platter and... More

We ate at the bar the three times we visited during February so the service was good. However, the food quality was inconsistent. Our first visit the steamed oysters were wonderful....topped with parm cheese and melted butter on the side...the second visit they weren't as good...the third visit they were sandy and not as much parm on top. I used... More

An upscale restaurant but down to earth food at reasonable prices. Oysters were great--I had never tried raw oysters til now. I had shrimp and grits and it was GREAT! Others had coconut shrimp, grouper and ahi tuna---all were very good. The ahi tuna had a very salty coating which my friend finally stripped away, so be warned. Service was... More

My wife and I had dinner here about a month ago. My wife had the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp and I had the Asian Salad. Both were quite good- nothing over the top but actually not bad. My wife said her shrimp tasted very good but the sauce was not as thick as it probably should have been. Quite runny... More

There's a very short list of the good things about this restaurant. It's on the water and the facility is beautiful - that's about it. Ironically, the non-seafood items on the menu are not bad but if you're going for seafood be aware that you're going to pay higher end prices for the same kind of seafood you would expect... More
