Wonderful Lobster Special

Had a really great meal here. Started with the 2-fer Oyster Appetizer and some salads, followed by the $20 lobster specials. All just excellent, but the very best dish was the Bloody Mary's. Absolutely GREAT drinks. Really worth going early for Happy Hour since you can save alot, and there is still... read more

The food was disgusting, and we were ignored by our waiter. Everything was sent back and the waiter couldn't care less. The manager removed food from the bill and I still felt ripped off. I've heard that they frequently run out of food during the night because they can't pay their bills. The food we ordered tasted spoiled and gross.... More

Great beachy vibe! Terrific food at reasonable beach resort prices. Happy hour from opening until I think 6:00. Good service; friendly staff.

Good food, nice tropical atmosphere, but like most places on Siesta Key, the prices are high for the quantity and quality of food received. $14-$16 for a burger and fries is high. They do often have live music, but don't sit too close, because it can be loud.

The place has a decent atmosphere but I found the food to be lacking. No food is made with no love. The menu gives you an impression of something mouthwatering but it doesn't deliver. Brisket sandwich was dry and lacked flavor. Lobster was forgettably plain. Matt's mac & cheese burger was disappointing. The Hub next door is by far a... More

Great service, average food. My wife really enjoyed the lobster dinner but I was looking for a good barbecue. I had the brisket and it was just ok, not great. The waitress was very nice.
