A great location on the water across from Catches makes this an ideal spot for warm weather outdoor dinning. The service was fine as our waitress was pleasant and attentive. The food was as you would expect in a sports bar, but reasonably priced. My Cuban sandwich was too dry as the bread was overdone, but it was good value... More

Great location, service and the food is, well, horrible. Some make and effort, but the others do not. Its a bar on the water. That's it. I watched employees , giving off employees free drinks. (We're not stupid). And the attitudes have got to go. Do your self a favor, find a good chef, clean up the place (cause it... More

Happened to drop in on Jam night, (Wednesdays) We really enjoyed the music along with our blackened fish tacos. They were delicious! The new owner makes you feel very welcome, usually makes his round to all tables to greet you. The atmosphere is really nice , and the staff courteous and thoughtful. We had planned to make it an early... More

Had dinner there twice last week, food wasn't bad but, the service needs a lot of work. Two different entrances doesn't help. We sat for fifteen minutes before being greeted then had to ask for silverware and ketchup after dinner arrived.

The family was on a quick trip from Florida to Canada so they ordered something quick. Funny thing with several things on the menu all 4 of them ordered... More

Three of us opted for fish and chips and the other had shrimp- all were delicious and generous portions For an extra .99 we had a fresh green salad- well worth the visit... More

(I prefer places popular with the locals) Glad we stumbled across it. Great food and excellent service. Companion chose shrimp basket and reported them to be excellent. I chose the Seared Aji Tuna Tacos. Glad I... More

We were in Port Richey for a couple of nights and ended up at Whiskey River both nights! The service was excellent both nights and when we had happy hour specials the first night, they were both wonderful. We had the shrimp bourbon and the house bisque....both excellent and something we would order again. We had the BEST bartenders and... More
