Good dinner

Stopped here for dinner after seeing it from the road. Seems like a fun place, live band was decent and entertaining. Food was good, fish and chips was well done and not greasy like most. Blackened Mahi sandwich was very good. Service was decent despite it being fairly crowded. Prices were... read more

It is a sportbar, that is for sure. Every night live music, often super, sometimes not.. It is noisy at the bar, but ok on the outside seating by the river. The food is really great! I loved the Whiskey River Bourbon shrimp, the shrimp wrap and the Philly. The Chilli ist hearty and meaty. We have been there for... More

We stopped for lunch and were glad we did. The view is excellent, the service was excellent and the food was good. They have daily specials which are excellent values. Old time Florida with a large deck area. Will go there again the next time we are in the area.

Fun atmosphere. We sat on the river side and enjoyed watching the fish jump and the bird activity. Definitely try a "Rum Runner", delicious and reasonably priced. Drafts were only $2, too. We were there early afternoon. The staff was very friendly. Will definitely return.

It can get very busy at weekends and seating mainly inside, there are bands on at weekends and various offers through the week. We have onky ate appetizers there. Service good although can be slow at week ends due to the sheer... More

While it is not easy to find, it will be one of my all time favorites. It is on the water and while it is called a sports bar and grill it is so much more. Yes they have TV's with sports and standard bar food (Burgers and wings) but I had the Whiskey River Penne Pasta with scallops and... More

Fun place to hang out with friends. Great place to take snow birds when they come to visit. Food is good, but a little over priced. This place emits old time Florida, nice water view.

The food was really good , but it took a very very long time to get the food and there was mistakes. It took again a very long time to correct. I hope they correct the issues because the location is good and the food was good
