Four of us dined here this week, and all of us loved our appetizer and meal choices. The waitress was very attentive, and helpful with good recommendations when asked. We liked the menu approach that allows you to match from a set of fish options with a set of preparation options. Yum! We had a reservation, and were seated right... More

I was so hoping that this place would be good. The building is right on the bay. Beautiful views. I have watched countless restaurants come and go for the last 25 years from here. The food was fair. Crab cakes were greasy. The chicken I ordered was so tuff that I had to send it back. The server was a... More

After our apps came I waited for someone to come to our table so I could get fresh dog round pepper for my salad. After 5 minutes a busboy came by. He came back with a broken pepper mill and put...

We chose the outdoor covered deck, but really felt we were right on the... More

Don't order the crab claws, they were frozen. But the drinks, green salad, and yellow tail snapper were very good. We got the tropical salsa on the side. It was wonderful.

Very expensive compaired to most of the other local restaurants. Great view overlooking the bay. Food was nothing special for the price. I had a frozen mango colada which was $10.50 which was good. The main complaint was my wifes dinner came out before her salad and my dinner came out about 7 minutes after her salad came out. The... More

My husband and I came to listen to some Regae tonight and have a good meal. Service was amazing...ask for Kate. The music was a bit too loud for our liking durring meal. Appetizers were good.
