We ordered 4 appetizers for two people and had the perfect amount of food. The fried oysters in spicy cornmeal were definitely the star of the meal. My mom is still raving about them. The oysters were fresh and tasty and the breading wasn't overpowering. The summer salad and baked oysters were excellent and the seared tuna was pretty good.... More

Food is always fresh with different blends of flavors. Love "The One" salad, recommend switching the mahi that comes on it to hogfish. The hogfish is so sweet! The tuna nachos, fish tacos, and pear pasta are also favorites of the kids and myself. Nice wine selection, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The restaurant is small, so... More

The menu listed here is wrong-it has Mexican food listed but this place is definitely NOT Mexican. Great fresh seafood and salads. We had a pasta appetizer that was great, with pear, light cheese, and pine nuts. We shared the summer salad that was also amazing and the grouper piccata on the specials menu that was delicate, light, and delicious.... More

As the name implies, it's a short walk to the river but not exactly on the river. It is located in old Stuart which is a nice little village of shops and restaurants. The dining room is small but still a very nice atmosphere. They do not serve cocktails so if you enjoy a martini before dinner this is not... More

My wife & I read the reviews & were looking for a nice restaurant near the Riverwalk in Stuart. The reviews led us here & we loved the food & the service. Both were very good. We decided after appetizers & a drink we'd had enough to eat as the portions were meal size. The location was great but we... More

Small place without much atmosphere but who cares when the food is this good. Baked oysters for appitizer and we both had fish specials for dinner. The sweet patato crusted fish dinner was killer. Service was excellence and there was a nice blend of letting people dine and not serve so fash you couldn't enjoy the meal. Good chef. Would... More

The restaurant is comfortable clean a little trendy and a lot like a Southern quaint restaurant. Food good proportions. Nice verity. Well cooked and presented elegantly. Wine and beer. No water view but a short stroll across the street is a beautiful sitting area on the river.

Atmosphere was fantastic. Food was even better. Cornmeal encrusted oysters best I have ever had. The dumpling purse app was an overwhelming success. Can't wait to go back.

I have to say, this dinner was true bliss. The service was excellent, atmosphere was wonderful…small and quaint..old brick wall…but the food!!!! I ordered the scallops are they were simply out of this world. Emerill voted this restaurant one of Florida's best and I have to agree! You will not be disappointed!
