Baja has become a staple place to go at the port for us. Ever since we went to go to Grilles 1 night and it was so packed we couldn't even hardly move to find a table. We find Baja to be a much more relaxing, enjoyable and affordable venue. Our last 2 visits though have been sub par and... More

Here's a great casual restaurant to go for lunch or dinner when in Cocoa Beach or Port Canaveral. Great seafood at reasonable prices and the people are friendly. Afternoons there is music in the bar area that won't blow your ear drums out. Get a table by the water around 4:00-5:00pm and watch the cruise ships leave. The lobster roll... More

Wish I could give it 0 stars. Our family stopped for lunch recently before boarding a cruise ship and our collective recommendation is to choose elsewhere. Whatever you do, if you go there, DO NOT order the "award winning chowder." Pitiful - with uniform square bits of clams??? Really? We fed most of our meal to two stray cats roaming... More

We had the Thursday night lobster tail special and really enjoyed it. We were seated next to a window and were fascinated watching the pelicans and dolphins. I enjoyed the well mannered cats. Probably because I was missing my kitty that I had to be boarded for 4 weeks. The seal point Siamese cat was just gorgeous! Our waitress was... More

We visited this restaurant about a week ago and had a fabulous experience. We were being shown a table close to where we sat last week and I could smell the disgusting stink from cigarettes and I asked if people were allowed to smoke in the restaurant and was told "only on the other side of the partition". Well, the... More

Let's see...choose Millikens, Rusty's, Baja Tavern? All good choices, but in the end it was the casual, unique menu, and TA reviews that tipped our scales. Also, we remembered a few great past dining adventures here. The grouper pot pie is as delicious as it is unique, and my wife loved the lobster roll. Lovely cats wandering about disturbed my...
