“Excellent seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We frequent this restaurant often and always choose the Caesar salmon salad. The fish is cooked to perfection and the lettuce is crisp. Their dressing is prepared just so. Excellent choice every time we stop in.

“Excellent fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

First time at this restaurant during brief stay at Melbourne. Picked it because of good trip advisor reviews.
It was very good indeed. We both tried the clam chowder to start, which is apparently award winning, and you can see why - it's superb. For mains the combo of mahi mahi, crab and shrimp was excellent as was the shrimp salad.

Service excellent and prices very reasonable.
Strongly recommend it

“Great service. Good food reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We had the salmon, mahi-mahi, and barramundi all were delicious. They did a nice job on the crab cake and the service was outstanding.

The service was friendly and efficient. Cajun platter was great and so was the pasta. Prices were reasonable for the quality.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Three of us went to this restaurant for the first time this past Friday. As others have stated the prices were very competitive and the menu offered a wide seafood selection in addition to several fresh fish specials. We all had different dishes but found the food very greasy--it had been over buttered or cooked in oil but served in it to the point of being drenched in grease and overwhelming the food flavor.
The clam chowder was very good . It was loaded with clams.
