I used to go here all the time but not anymore...they have a revolving door policy on the help, which is crazy...the people that used to work there were much much much better, now the service staff is nothing but rude and lazy. The food is mediocre at best. I really don't think the owner knows what he/she is doing... More

We enjoyed the outside atmosphere by the water and marina. The food was hot and tasty, but service is so slow. We waited over 40 minutes for our food to come out. Maybe they need more people behind the bar. There was only one person and she could not keep up.

This place is right on the waterway in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Right on alternate 19 easy to get to, plenty of parking. I'm not a bar person but its right on the dock. The long outside patio stretches across the entire backside of the building along the water. The bar area can use a little TLC for sure and so... More

I love this restaurant. The clam chowder is delicious and fresh (and i HATE seafood) the coconut shrimp was good but not as great as usual. they are very accommodating to anything you request and allow pets which is fantastic. we ordered our dogs a plain hamburger patty and they did exactly as asked. this is exactly the type of...

This really was a meal of two halves. I had coconut shrimp to start. Was freshly cooked and plentiful. My husband asked for a dozen oysters and was told they only had 10 so would pro rata the cost. When the bill came we were charged $17.99 with a $2 deduction. You do the math. My husbands burger was delicious... More

This is a popular stop for boats on the river. And so easy to access by vehicle. An eye catching establishment located on Alt 19 in Tarpon Springs. The seafood is some of the freshest in the area. Service is always fast and the entertainment is always great. This is a place you will visit time after time!!! Dale Baird... More

Service was slow but there was live music. Food was average but the water view was very nice; we sat upstairs and there was a nice breeze. Interesting boat watching.

Sort of agree with other comments about grouper sandwich. Being a ex restaurant chef I wasn't happy with small, thin piece of "grouper"(have my doubts what it really was). Need to buy smaller rolls so minnow size of fish won't get lost on the tasteless, 20yr shelf life hamburger roll. Had to pay extra for cold french fries. Didn't bother... More

Who serves fish spread with tortilla chips? Capt. Jack's. Had to order crackers. Zero condiments on table. My $15 grouper sandwick came with a green tomato and one limp piece of brown lettuce. No tartar sauce or mayo. Had to call for the manager. I ordered fries. Got potato chips. Had to ask them to bring them out. My friend... More

We came here for lunch after reading some rave reviews for this restaurant. The food was bland and the restaurant itself seemed somewhat run down.
