Nice surprise!! Good place to watch the cruise ships and great food!

We had a restaurant.com coupon and thought we would check it out... couldn't hurt for for a discounted meal. We were pleasently surprised! I had read several comments prior to going so I was prepared for a few disappointments. Several reviews talked about stray cats on the outside deck... read more

very disappointing. Last time we were here, the food was as good as the view. This time, not so much. I had the lobster roll....big mistake. Not only was it dry, it was flavorless. Only after adding mayo AND tartar sauce (just to give it a little flavor) was it edible. My husband had the fried grouper basket. He said... More

Had lunch here today and it was great! The fish and chips were delicious, nice light breading, and very fresh. Other diners had Cesaer salad and yummy chowder. We'll be back again to try more items on the menu. The view is wonderful of the port; meal arrived in a timely manner; friendly and efficient wait staff. Reasonable prices. Thanks... More

I reviewed this restaurant a couple of months ago and couldn't say enough about the lobster rolls. I must admit, back then I had 5 in three days! Lunch dinner and take out. Yuh, they were that good. We revisited the place in April all set to once again pig out on such a treat. But, I was really disappointed... More

We stopped by here on a whim one afternoon. We got a nice booth by the channel. It took awhile for the food but it was good when we received it. The staff was very friendly. We will probably stop again.

We came for dinner on Tuesday night. We had the Garlic Shrimp and Blackened Mahi. The only thing that was good on each plate was the black beans and rice and plantains. I ordered a bottle of wine. The wine was not good was brought another and it ok. I am a local of Port Canaveral. I must say that... More

Port Canaveral waterfront restaurant. Great location but was disappointed with food. Claimed to have an award winning chowder. Average at best. Also had fried fish and fried shrimp basket. Both had a different tasting coating that was not to our liking. Staff friendly. Atmosphere casual. Would not return.

Great waterfront restaurant with super food and outstanding staff. We eat here every time we come to the area and have never been disappointed. The only drawback is that when the band is playing they are extremely loud, I mean knock you over loud - with that said - do not even attempt to eat in the bar area. I... More

Four for lunch, dozen raw oysters (good), two chowders (good), one burger (good) and two shrimp baskets (good,good). We enjoyed our visit, sat on the waterfront and watched the boats and pelicans. Worth another try on another day. Give it a shot, hope you like it too.
