“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This small restaurant is big on superior food and professional service. The menu has so many imaginative items it is difficult to choose just one. I had one of the specials which was deviled crab crusted salmon -- my mouth is watering just thinking of it. My husband had the fish and chips which was cooked perfectly. The service was very attentive with both the hostess and the waitress ensuring that we were well looked after.

“Where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

You can skip the highly touted restaurants at the beaches and cross the lagoon to eat here. It looks like a dive and is equally unpretentious inside but the food, service, and attitude is good to excellent. Usually a large menu means mediocrity but not in this case.Excellent bar, OK wine list desserts to die for (Kentucky Derby bourbon pecan pie) and entrees of all kinds. Make a reservation - they do not push you to leave so they can turn the tables. On US #! just south of the causeway. Have fequented this place for years.

“Nice Unecpected Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Used a gift certificate donated by this restaurant to National Kidney Foundation. Drove by it many times, but like most good restaurants the good surpasses the modest exterior. Lobster and Scallops Florentine was tasty in a gourmet sauce, I would get it next time over angel hair.

“Definitely one to drive on by”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

After many coaxings from friends that knwo I dine out very often and always want to try new places, my dining partner and ventured to Pineda on Sat. July 13. Upon entering we wesat waiting for a hostess to aknowledge that we were indeed there for dinner. We were finally told that it woudl be at least a 25 min. wait. That left us to sit on the very uncomftable benches in a make-do waiting area by the front door. The noise level in the diningroon was horrendous at best. Diners were literally having to yell across their table to be heard by others in their party. The A/C duct system looks rather makeshift and created very uncomfortable cold spots in the room. Finally the table was available and we were seating the very center of the chaotic front dining room. When the waitress came ot the table with menus, I asked that we be able to move to a table next to a wall with a window opening to another dining room , possible to get out of the noise and the cold drafts. While we escaped the freesing air, the yelling going on at tables was almost a competition to be heard. Simple conversation with my dining partner was impossible. Hearing the waitress try and explain the night's specials from less that 2 feet away was impossible. She did manage to get a drink order and in looking further at the menu, the combination of the lack of cleanlinessin the dark, very dingy diningroom, , the ever-growing noise level and outraegous pricing for food that I saw being delivered to tables around us, left no sensible alternative but to leave and find a more suitable, clean and sensible dining establlshment for the evening. Noise levels of a bad rock concert in close quarters ruins the place. Check your prices! 31.00 for a small steak and 25.00 for several scallops with bacon is a bit high for the area despite the availability of the pretentious sauces most at extra charge.A simple caesar salad at almost 11.00 and obviously frozen "fish & chips at 16.00! All in all it was a waste of time that we will not soon make again and will be passing the "beware" to others that ask for good places to enjoy a good meal with nice atmosphere in Brevard County. Clean the place up, and dress the place up if you are going to try for those outraegous prices in this area. It was like trying to possibly enjoy eating in front of a loudspeaker in a busy airport terminal, but the terminal woudl have been cleaner and less dingy.
