“Yuck!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2011

If you want a drink and a good view of the water, then this would be a good place to go. However, if you're looking to get good food, you need to go somewhere else. The fried clams were literally like fried rubber. You couldn't even bite into them. Disgusting! My broiled fish and shrimp were edible but Long John Silvers is a lot better (believe it or not!). And they tried to charge us the dinner price ($18.99) during lunch time for the fried seafood platter (the one w/the fried rubber, I mean fried clams). The waitress started to argue w/me but the cashier overheard us and she fixed it. What a waste of nearly $60 for lunch! The food is definitely last on the list of priorities at this place and my raspberry margarita was watered down.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

Above average view, average food. However, the fish sandwiches are very good. Live entertainment often.

“Great view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2011

We ate dinner outside with a great view of the gulf, pier, and sunset. This was the only restaurant we went to that served rolls and salad with dinner. The food was good, although not gourmet. The view more than made up for that and I would definitely go again!

“Best Location, Ok Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

This restaurant may have the best location. It's on the beach at the pier, right on Times Square. There is energy, excitement, great views, nice beach, and people watching. The food, however, is mediocre. They don't have any wine list and the fish was bland and forgettable. I still recommend this place, because it's an institution but there are other restaurants with great views and better food.
