“Fun outdoor tropical place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

I eat here once every time I am in town, which is 8-10 times a year. Fish and shrimp is very good. Asked if they could make quesso, which is on their menu-just not everyday. Was told no. And they do not carry French fries which was an issue for my one son. Also called to see how long the wait was and the gal told me little to no wait. We live 5 minutes from there and when we got here the gal told us an hour wait. Overall great place to go for fish.

“Tropical feel and setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We fell in love with the place. Carribean atmosphere. We had the shrimps, chicken/cheese empanadas, crabmeat fritters. Sangria was delicious and not cheap on the fruit. They had fans blowing mist from foliage above near a small river forming a wonderful breeze and cover from florida's heat and humidity.

“Beautiful scenery! Average food and service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

My family and I ate there on a Wednesday night. The wait was about 15 minutes but no one minded because the atmosphere is amazing! The food was average and a bit pricey but we were fine with that because we were on vacation. My husband was not happy that he ordered a Corona and it didn't come until he was almost finished with his meal. We would definitely return for drinks and appetizers and to enjoy the vibe.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Really neat place. The food ranges from ok to very good so make sure you ask for and follow the recommendation of your server. The outside atmosphere was outstanding, even though the temps were mid 90's. Drinks at the bar before the meal made the short wait insignificant to us, although to some the no reservation policy is a drag, Valet parking too.

“Loved the Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is by far one of the best places for both great food and great atmosphere. They have tables overlooking the water, a bar that wraps around, live music at night and a great staff. They do not take reservations so in season, be prepared to wait. You can now come by boat if it can get under the fixed bridge. They have a place right there that you can rent paddle boards as well. This restaurant is a must on your trip to Jupiter.
