The seafood and drinks were excellent. It was no problem to have a 6 year old around, and the... read more

We eat here often for dinner and lunch and have always been pleased with the service and the food. We hadn't tried brunch in 10 years and were looking forward to it's bountiful display of breakfast items, seafood, and crazy yummy dessert table. Running 10 minutes late to our 11:30 , 6 person reservation due to a traffic re-route because... More

An excellent service and choice of meals. The food was really good and our server offered us a great service. We ate on the terrace which offered a beautiful view. Even though the weather was cooler, there had decorative lights that was really appreciated on the terrace. It was a wonderful evening !

A popular Restaurant & bar on the waterfront. Popular at lunchtime. It has a nice atmosphere. Lunch with friends, busy restaurant but alas our waiter was forgetful on a couple of occasions. The food was good, my friends love the restaurant and go regularly.

We have been here several times, as a couple and group setting. Everytime we have been amazed with the scenery and waterfront to the selection of the menu and the location is prime for any event at Amalie.

Nice place to eat overlooking The harbor and convention center. Sushi and wine was great. Ambience was nice. Conch fritters were over cooked.

There isn't anything to dislike. Room was tastefully decorated and the lights from the buildings outside added to the ambiance. Very classy.
