“Excellent meal with a great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We went to Hemingways and would def recommend it. We sat on the patio at sunset and were able to enjoy our drinks and dinner while seeing dolphins swim around…..our kids were thrilled! Food and atmosphere were wonderful too.

“Good food - Long wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

My wife and I looked at the menu which had great variety and as usual, at a price because its the beach. I chose the seafood paella which was very delicious. My wife had trigger fish and is Gluten Free so it had little sauce and was served with mashed potatoes. The meal was fine but the 1 hour wait was unacceptable! No bread, no salads meant long wait. They need to add something other than an appetizer if they plan on taking that long to get a meal to you.

“Wonderful fresh seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Had the frozen lemonade and rum drink. Wonderful. The smoked tuna dip was great. Had the trigger fish with florentine sauce and it was amazing. Others had the paella, coconut shrimp, tuna steak and fish sandwich. Everyone was happy! Great service and view of bay!

This is another great place to go for dinner. The service was excellent as well as the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant and don't forget to pick up a shirt on your way out.
