“Horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Food may be good. We don't know because we were turned away at the door by the world's rudest hostess. We called ahead, but they gave away our table. I realize that happens, but if you are not going to honor call ahead then don't offer it. That wouldn't bother me so much if they were at least nice about it. But she wasn't and acted like we were idiots for doing so. Poor service is inexcusable hence the ones. Now I have no incentive to try it again.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Enjoyed lunch outside upstairs overlooking the water (even saw a dolphin!) We both had Caesar salads, mine with grilled chicken, my husband's with fish. Meat was yummy and salad pretty good.

“Very good but poor parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Not easy to get to but well worth it when you do. Had the fish taco which were excellent. My wife had the steak that is not on the Trip Advisor menu. Excellent as well. Little bit of a wait on a Monday evening bit not too bad. Our server was efficient with zero personality. The food and view are well worth going back again.

“Must get the grilled oysters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night. Very busy but the hostess was very helpful and got us a table in a reasonable time. We had a great server who was very friendly and attentive. We had the grilled oyster trio..YUM. We got 6 but wished we had gotten a dozen. Our entrees were fried shrimp with sweet potato fries and crab cakes with regular fries. Both were well prepared, hot and tasty. Reasonably priced. Would definitely come back if ever in Fernandina again.

“Sunset special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Watering hole with a view -- if you're upstairs. Gets crowded at sunset. Good beer selection. Food ok; good for snack.
