Happy place in the "happiest town"

The pizza was great. It seems that Thursday night is open mic night, which led to good local talent having fun and welcoming new performers. Servers were attentive although very busy. Great location on the water, we enjoyed our experience at Yacht Basin Eatery.

this is a neat waterway eatery with a varied menu, serving seafood, italian dishes, pizza and a whole lot more. Having music on the weekend and being on the intracoastal is a plus. friendly staff make it a nice night out.

Food and service ok, nice to sit near the water in good weather, over priced drinks. Could be better, could be worse..

Food quality is inconsistent. My wife had a mixed salad which shrimp which was good. I had the fried shrimp basket w/french fries. My shrimp was overdone and my fries were soggy and oversalted by any standard. Prices were a bit high even for the better meal.

Had a half tuna melt sandwich that was over toasted, bread too thick and content so-so. Drinks were WAY overpriced -$12 for a small Black Russian. Lobster bisque was very good, though, and waitress was friendly. Docks appear short (ate only - didn't dock.)

Waited 15 minutes at hostess stand before being acknowledged. Older guy running around totally flustered. Took 3 trips trying to clean off a table then took our name down. We ordered a beer while we waited but never got it, he brought people that ordered drinks after us their drinks. When we asked him where our drinks were he said... More

It's in a great spot, and the claims and goals on the menu sound impressive--I was impressed by how many ingredients are prepared in-house. But with 5 entrees, only one was even acceptable (the reuben had good toppings, though they didn't have any corned beef that day. Everything else was lacking flavor, and the textures and proportions of ingredients were... More

I went with my family to this restaurant and the location and view are great. The disappointment was the food, we just ordered a couple of appetizers, and one of them was the spanakopita with crab. The crab was barely edible and was either from a can or frozen, either way it was bad. I would advise getting some drinks... More

Shrimp at the beach…how can that be a miss? And grits…in the South? Ditto. Description from the menu: fresh Creole Shrimp (which was THE only good thing) with hot Italian and smoked sausages and bacon sautéed in olive oil, garlic, shallots, sweet and hot peppers, and plum tomatoes served over creamy, cheesy stone ground grits. Sounds good doesn't it? As... More

I've never had a bad meal here. It is a great place for lunch. The restaurant has outdoor seating on a deck of the yacht basin. It is a great place to watch boaters and dolphins go by while enjoying your meal. I've had several meals at the Eatery, their Italian selections are very good as are their sandwiches, pizzas,...
