Bar on the Pier. Just stopped by for a beer with a friend. Nice on the deck watching the boats and such go by. Staff are friendly and not intrusive. Tried the Gator bits just because I have never had Gator before. Deep Fried and breaded. A lot like chewy chicken. But fun to try for sure.

The table was cleared and we pracically had to corner the staff for help. They claimed the trash had been taken out. We wsited 30... More

My husband and I ate lunch here while on vacation. We ordered soup and shrimp. The price, quantity and taste were definitely not up to par. The staff was pleasant and efficient, but the food didn't win us over. Will not be returning!

In an area where you want to go everywhere by boat this is one of the best restaurants for boating facilities. They have some the longest docking available. The food is casual but always large portions and very tasty. I had the Ruben which was amazing and my daughter had the burger which she could barely finish.

How do you use frozen seafood when your restaurant is located on the water? Gonna try bubba gump shrimp company tonight. Hope they produce a better... More

We ate here for dinner. We started with an order of onion rings that were so disgustingly greasy, there was a puddle at the bottom of the basket. My husband had the Jamacian Jerk Beef Tips, they had no flavor and the meat was cheap. I ordered the fish tacos which were very wet and basically fell apart. This dish... More
