“Embarrassment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Decided to try this newly opened restaurant with out of town guests who insisted on treating. I was mortified. It was definitely a rip off and the food wasn't even mediocre. Will never go back.

“Beautiful Spot with Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This used to be a great independent restaurant we frequented the last 5+ years which recently changed to a chain. The location is beautiful right along the Jupiter Inlet. The service was a bit slow even though it was not very busy. The food was okay. I had shrimp scampi and my husband had the baked stuffed shrimp. We both thought it was somewhat bland. We may still go here for drinks but probably not for dinner again.

“Franchise food, with too-abundant peddling of crap souvenirs.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

A franchise based upon a fictional character in a movie that screams "tourist trap," and saturates the restaurant with crappy souvenirs. Who would buy that s*%t??? SOMEONE does, or it would be gone--like I am. Never to return. Too many other options to put up with schlock like this, and unimpressive corporate food to boot. Red Lobster for retards.

“Had better.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The service was bad food was in such little portions. we were surrouded by dirty tables. The wind was blowing the stuff on the floor. It did not seem to bother the staff as they walked buy and looked at it. One waiter even dumped his dirty dishes on one of the dirty tables. To count eight were dirty as the people left the tables stayed dirtyand we were there for over an hour. went to pay and the waitress was gone with my credit card for over twenty minutes. She said machine was down. Well i would of paid cash instead of waiting for twenty minutes. Had to put stop bubba stop sighn just to find where she was. so to say like forest gump, Check forest check, clean forest clean,life is like a box of choclate, You do never know what you will get, At this place you will get bad service, small portions, and a view of dirty tables evan when they were not busy, Thanks forest thanks......
