Nice piece of fish with a view

The orange cake was delicious, save room for dessert. Best piece of grilled mahi I've had along the Florida coast! Our server Japeth was so knowlegeable and even gave us a great scenic rout to take home. A lovely Sunday afternoon.

Sailor's Return is right on the St Lucie River. Beautiful view and great atmosphere. A little pricey but the food is good.

We decided to visit family in Stuart for Father's Day and picked this wonderful watering hole with fantastic food down by the Marina below the Roosevelt bridge. We were blown away with how good the food was. The portions were huge and delicious. I had the Mahi Rachel with slaw, melted Swiss and thousand island dressing on rye. The wife... More

I visited Sailor's Return several times during my vacation in Jensen Beach. The view is beautiful with the restaurant being located in a busy Marina. My husband and I enjoyed outside seating in their covered and comfortable patio, watching boats pass by. You can't help but breathe a sigh of relaxation in this place. Cocktails were expertly made and every... More

We recently had dinner at Sailor's Return due to the close proximity to where we were staying. As others have noted, it has a fabulous view of the marina and harbor--we elected to sit outside as it was a perfect early summer evening. Based on the happy-hour crowd and touristy feel, I was not expecting a great dinner--but, I was... More

Mother's Day with a reservation an awful experience!!!We arrived at the restaurant and I approached the desk to check in, listening to other' inquire about a table . The hostess demeanor and attitude was one of abruptness and far from welcoming. We were supposed to be seated on the porch area and were placed below. There were 7 of us.... More

Not sure what it is about waterside restaurants, but they seem to all share one trait...mediocre food! Sailor's Return is no exception. The good...great location and the lunch menu is affordable and they serve a pretty good fish taco. The bad...dinner is WAY over priced and the several times i have eaten there, the food has been average to down... More
