“I want my credit card and time back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

OUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER WAS STOLEN AFTER EATING AT THIS RESTAURANT!

Granted, we can't prove who took the number, but what a coincidence after dining here that a large amount of charges appeared. Overall, the food and experience were entirely overrated for the amount of good reviews the place has gotten and dealing with a credit card fiasco afterward was extremely unpleasant. Wish we went somewhere else.

PS. Call your "bread girls" something else... what an unprofessional way to introduce yourself. "Hi, I'm your bread girl" is a horrible start of what's supposed to be a classy meal upstairs.

“Seafood Skillet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Enjoyable dinner outside. Staff was friendly and offer advise and recommendations. I had the Joe's Skillet which was delicious. The key lime pie was typical pie but cut in square. It tasted like anyother key lime pie.

“Beautiful Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Food was good, but the atmosphere was better. This place was so nice at night. You can feed the fish while you wait for your food.

“Fresh and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Had the Marina salad and there must have been a full pound of crab and shrimp on it. My friend had the Mahi sandwich and she said it was fabulous. Great service, reasonable prices. Will go again.

“Go to RED LOBSTER instead!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We went to this restaurant after hearing it is often voted the best waterfront dining in South Florida. If that's the case, people like the view and don't care about decent food. We were seated in the "upscale" dining. With most entrees priced at $30+. Over server was very pleasant, however, having to wait ten minutes for pepper, another ten for butter and almost that long for a fork was ridiculous. Especially given that the servers worked in "teams", the the other one coming by a few times to stare at the table without saying a word and walk away. There was a 40 minute wait between courses. When the entrees arrived, the Ahi tuna steak was six slices of thin tuna and the halibut was so overcooked it was about as hard as the table.
This place is a total joke, depending on tourists that don't know any better or perhaps hanging on to a once good reputation.
Total waste of time and money.
