Food was decent, 40 minute wait for food ridiculous

There were about 6 tables of customers in the restaurant and this wait was not explained by the waitress at all. Also, they have a coupon on their website that they only accept if it's printed out which really left a bad taste. By the time the food came and the after the coupon fiasco, it wasn't a... read more

The pet-friendly place is right in the water and accessible by cars, boats and paddle boards. No frills, but good food, good drinks and great people.

If you like dining along the water then this will do. Nice staff but the food was not fabulous. Casual bar atmosphere. Bathrooms are "out back" behind the restaurant. A bit pricey for the fare they provide. They were accommodating to our large group (11) though and seated us along the long bar. I would not go back if I... More

If you're looking for fine dining, look elsewhere. If you want good food, nice water views and friendly staff, this is the place for you! Sunday brunches are particularly enjoyable (if the weather cooperates) and the food is always tasty. Sure, it's bar food, but it's FLORIDA bar food, which makes it great. Lots of seafood on the menu, and... More

This is a place that you won't find just by driving around St. Petersburg. It is on a side street that most people wouldn't normally drive on. Two of us had the fish & chips. The fish was not rubbery and greasy tasting like you may find in many of lower priced restaurants. They give you three big pieces that... More

I love hanging out at this restaurant/bar staring at the water and reliving growing up in St. Petersburg. The food isn't that great, but there is a wide variety of beers and the location is ideal. It has a very "St. Petersburg" feel to it. It once had a seafood boil once a week or month that was great, but... More

Have eaten here on and off for many years. Always good food in an out of the way location 5 min south of downtown. Waterfront setting is nice. Good food, good service, good value. Great Happy Hour. Very convenient to the Dali Museum.

We ate here for lunch and enjoyed our visit. Seafood chowder was yummy. They had a good choice of wings. The grouper sandwich was also very good. Our server knew the menu very well and was spot on with her recommendations. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of boats going in and out. Nice lunch spot.

We were able to have an enjoyable time with family at this restaurant while we were waiting for our trip to begin with Lotto Boats. The fish sandwich I had was incredible.

Some friends suggested Fish Takes to us. We had lunch outside on the docks on a warm Mobday in November. The docks are more for pleasure boaters than landing catches. They have a large selection of beers and a complete bar. Each of us had a different seafood sandwich or wrap. The tab for 4 meals and a beer came... More
