We just got done eating here. Got a veggie burger with mystery sauce that our waitress could not identify. Also gator bites were chewy. All the food was extremely greasy. They did take the veggie burger off the bill. The view is awesome though. So just go for the drinks and view.

Nice view that's the only good thing about this place. The worst food I had since I came to America 20 years ago.We ordered the gator bites and onion rings. and it was really hard to tell which one was worst.The gator bites were tough like rubber from an old car tire and tasteless. The onion rings were just rings... More

Food was okay (especially the calamari) but service and entertainment were not worth the trip. Planned to have dinner but changed our minds after a bit.

I wasn't expecting a lot from the food in going here, but at least average bar food. The food however was below average, and the service mediocre, despite it not being that crowded. I'll give it three stars because of the good view of the water and boats, otherwise it would be 2 at best.

We planned to eat dinner here. We sat out on the upper porch. Beautiful view! That was the best part! Drinks were good. But the menu options were limited and not impressive! What a shame! We were craving peel and eat shrimp! Shocked that it wasn't on the menu. So we cashed out after a drink and went elsewhere for... More

Referred here by locals but wasn't impressed with the food whatsoever. We had nachos and gator bites...Neither were impressive. Completely disappointed. The only positive was the singer. He had a great voice and made the atmosphere pleasant.

Very nice place inside and out. Our server Heather was great. Food was disappointing. Fish spread was great but the saltines where stale. The wings where good. The Cuban was all bread with little meat. The fried fish sandwich was cold and soggy. Onion rings where huge and good but would be better if they thinned the batter a little.... More

This is a great relaxing place with a great view of the inlet. Watched dolphins swim as we ate. Portions are large. Ask for kristal. Great waitress to boot! Will be back. For sure when one if the bands Krystal told us about are there. Too hot for outdoor this visit but outdoor looked great also

Good food - the bucket of shellfish was great. Good atmosphere when live music on and the drinks are big and cheap!
