I am impressed by the menu at this restaurant. The bloody Mary's are really like ordering an appetizer. They are very spicy and are topped with a shish-kabob with pickle, pepperoncini, celery, olive, prawn, and something else that I can't remember on it. The margaritas were some of the best I've had. My father had Pancho Shrimp. We expected them... More

We had a nice lunch here in late January 2013, since we arrived just after noon we had to wait for about 10 minutes for a table so we walked out to the end of the dock and watched the pelicans and fishing boats. When our table was ready we ordered a couple beers which arrived very quickly for how... More

This is a nice restaurant with good food and good wine. The ambiance is a tricky one. It feels a little awkward and cramped at night but before the sun sets you can get a nice view of the gulf and it makes all the difference.

We have eaten breakfast, lunches and dinners here and everything was always great. The seafood is fresh and tasty, the coleslaw is very good and the Bloody Mary's are the best we have ever had. In fact, they are a small snack themselves. The view is spectacular no matter where you look. We have eaten here four times in the... More
