“Great atmosphere on the water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great atmosphere outside on the Intracoastal Waterway in South Florida by beautiful draw bridge. Food is excellent, especially the chef specials. Good bar scene. Fun live music....overall awesome place to go with friends or family. (Only con is the water galsses are tiny and must be refilled too often!)

“Fun dining and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went to this restaurant at the last minute and should have called ahead for a reservation. Very popular place and the hostess found us a table in no time. All our dishes were excellent and very reasonable. It can get quite noisy as they have a young bar crowd but this did not affect our evening. The shanghai chicken salad was particularly delicious and plentiful;enough for a meal in itself. Parking can get tight but there is excellent free valet parking available. Try to get an outside table on the intercoastal to make the evening a great success.

“Average says it all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is a nice location with outdoor seating, but beware. If you sit outside your view may be of the place next door with an awning covered in pelican poop. Not there fault, just a bit unappetizing. As for the food we had a hi tuna appetizer, very good. Ordered two salads at 2.50 each and were treated to iceberg lettuce, cuke, and two cherry tomatoes, small cup of dressing. A little more effort you think? Dinner was coconut shrimp and crab encrusted snapper. Both were good, took a long time to come out. Food was proper temp, mashed potato was cold. Overall an average doing experience.
