I will preface this review by saying I have never written a review about anyplace we have gone except one other time. But I was so disappointed to spend $50 for a meal that was not what the reviews portrayed. We came here from Ft. Myers while checking out the beach in Englwood. Hubby looked up the reviews... knowing I like water, good food, and music he figured that the reviews covered two out of three. What a disappointment. I even took photos to attach but realized you couldn't do that. The water view was a very short inlet up the side of the restaurant that was so weedy and was red tide filled the smell was overwhelming, you could smell it even inside. You stared at a white fence and if you strained your neck you could see the river. My husband ordered the fried Cod special. The portions in a KFC to go cup are bigger, wish I could post the picture. I ordered blackened chicken breast which I must say was large. I paid an extra $3 for a mango salsa that was bland. It was mentioned in previous reviews what a great salad bar they had, it was very disappointing. I have always been skeptical of negative reviews when there are many positive ones . I guess that's why I posted. Very disappointed and would not recommend this place. The waitress was very curtious and the people pleasant but the food and atmosphere were disappointing
