We were looking for a place to eat with seafood and steak and found this place had good reviews and thought that we should give it a try. We ordered lunch to share - a ribeye, and a seafood platter with fries, breaded fish, 3 pcs of shrimp and crab cake. Because my husband has allergies to blue crabs, I... More

Three of us ladies went out on a Saturday afternoon. I had the Maui Maui. I must say it was excellent. The service was great and the atmosphere was as well.

Great location (once you find it). Good food. Excellent sunset. We had the stuffed flounder and guacamole and shrimp salad. Although it was good, very good in fact, we have had better but location and view made up for it. Reasonably priced. Nice calming live music too.

Sunset dining is a must. Beautiful photo opportunities. However, the food is ok and unfortunately the service is incredibly slow. We've been multiple times & it's the same every time. The folk singers are always good though.

Without question-THE BEST seafood I have ever had! For an appetizer,we ordered a portabella mushroom and crabmeat starter-lots of flavor,very good. Our entree was: fried gulf shrimp,coleslaw,fries,and bread...oh my goodness-this was just awesome! Everything about it was delicious. We ordered the Key Lime pie for dessert.....again, wonderful...not too sweet and not too tart-just right! Our server was Isabel. She gave... More

Great place just before sunset. Although there are of course a lot of people there thinking the same thing.. However food was also great, so it is worth the wait, if you do not get a table at once, buy a drink and enjoy the sunset while you wait.

Service is horrible. Food is mediocre Prices are inflated Ordered: Kids Fish Basket, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, 1 sprite, 1 beer, 2 Hurricanes = $70 check. Fish was heavily greasy from frying with a side of basic french fries. Bacon wrapped shrimp were just average. Little shrimp wrapped with bacon, definitely not medium sized. Nothing exceptional. When we arrived we wanted... More
