I followed the reviews on Yelp and the food was just ok. Will not go back next trip. Too many other fish in the proverbial sea.

Our first dinner here was on 9/1/14 to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. We dined on bbq shrimp as well as the onion straws both were very good. We tried bbq shrimp at a few other restaurants and in my opinion Hemingway's were the best! Lobster bisque was cold when it arrived to the table, so it was sent back.... More

Nice place and good food BUT they seem to hire the most inexperienced waitstaff. Takes away from the whole experience. Visited last year and the same the same this year too. Got apps before drinks and then rushed with the salad and entree. These kids know nothing about timing. Just get em in and get em out. Sadly if they... More

The first time we came here for lunch it was excellent but the second visit was horrible because the grilled oysters included two that smelled very rotten it was just gross and something the chef should have smelled and never sent to the table, I hate that this happened because we loved our first visit but it has ruined any...

We generally eat at Hemingway's Island Grill once a week or once every two weeks at the least. We love the fish tacos, and they have great wine, desserts. For couples, family, friends, even just dropping by after work or the beach...this is a wonderful and appreciative place to eat. We prefer eating at the bar or in the bar... More

My family of 10 celebrated our dad's birthday and had a terrific experience. The wait staff was very attentive, especially Chloe. I had the Mahi Mahi, and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. The prices were not unreasonable considering the quality and freshness. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and we all look... More

I was excited to visit this restaurant, we went the first night we arrived. the ambiance was nice, but wasn't really impressed with the menu or food we ordered. I had the grouper Florentine style, it was good, the smashed potatoes really overwhelmed it though. My husband had the hurricane grilled shrimp...he's not a fan of yellow rice so he... More

I arrived right behind a 12 top so I thought I'd be forgotten for the rest of the night. I was passed around the servers and Jessica ended up taking excellent care of me. Sautéed crab claws were interesting and a treat. The conch chowder never came (well have to see if it's on the check. I couldn't eat it... More

Nice restaurant with a view. More upscale atmosphere than several surrounding restaurants. Staff was friendly. Food is pricey, but good. I enjoyed the flat bread pizza as well as the Hurricane Shrimp.
