“Not a bad meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Channel Marker was recommended to us by the hotel staff. The ladies who greeted us were pleasant and the ambiance was nice. Great view overlooking the water. Unfortunately the dirty wine glass and oversalted stuffed flounder kept to from being great. Food was ok and the waitress was very nice and attentive. I would try it again.

“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We had great service, Alfredo made sure our glasses were filled and our needs were met without being pushy. We were seated promptly, right by the window overlooking the water, it was really fun watching a storm roll by as we sat warm and dry! The food wasn't bad, not the greatest we've ever had but certainly not the worst. The spinach crab dip was really tasty, we really liked the homemade spinach tortillas that came with it. Brought home key lime pie, delish!
