Good food, friendly service, nice environment

We went with our 2 year old for dinner and the food was good and staff was very friendly and welcoming. Not cheap but good for a special occasion.

We arrived at about 6:30 on a Saturday night. We had no reservation. ***If restaurants want to require reservations, they should say that. If they want to express that they are booked, they should say that.**** What they shouldn't do is make a funny face then tell you they can serve you out on the patio. This is what they... More

We rented the entire place for an event and our kids were with us. They were ok but I recommend keeping little ones at home since it is such an intimate atmosphere. Live the food and wine selection. My husband had the swordfish, which was caught two hours before prep time. I had the petite sirloin which was fantastic! Love... More

Cozy atmosphere and excellent food. Everything we read here was true... If you want a wonderful meal to celebrate a special occasion (it was our anniversary), this is the place to go while in Port A.

Legit. Great small restaurant. Ask for the oysters without cheese. It is a chef driven restaurant that is more than fried foods.

What a great cozy little restaurant. Loved the wedge salad, the red snapper with ravioli and the amazing bread. They were so nice to split all dishes.. . Great service.. Enjoy!

This hole in the wall doesn't look like much, and there are just a few tables (NB: make reservations as soon as you arrive in Port A. during the high tourist season, or forget about getting in!). The chef is amazing. The presentation of the food is first class and thoughtful. I had the stuffed flounder, and it was terrific.... More

Absolutely the finest seafood you will find in Port A, and that is saying a lot due to all the incredible seafood places there. Excellent catering as well (my wife and I were married at the Tarpon Inn and Roosevelt's catered). So many memories, excellent wine list, and the chef (his name escapes me) is just the friendliest dude you... More

Just when I had given up hope of any place with great food we found the place. Everything was just perfect. Make a reservation but otherwise you should be in good shape. All the apps, salads and entrees were very good.
