“Good seafood but that's it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I have no problems with the food. My seafood was excellent and my wife's steak good. The atmosphere is lacking. One of our pet peeves are people on cell phones. One customer was on his computer and cell doing business. A no no in a restaurant. The owner was present.
He should have stopped this.

“King Craptunes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I don't know who the people are that previously reviewed this restaurant but, our experience was NOT plesant. One of our party of 4 read the reviews and wanted to try this place for awhile. We called ahead of time because we where eating a late dinner. They informed us that they closed at 9:00 but if we arrived before 8:15 that would be good. We arrived at 8:13. When we entered there was 1 available table so we sat there. After several minutes, a waitress gave us menus and took our drink order. They were out of or didn't have the first 3 beer selections on their menu that we ordered. When she finally returned with our drinks, we all order the special that Wednesday night which was all you can eat steamed shrimp. We were informed they were all out of shrimp, even the appetizer shrimp. This is a seafood house! The waitress was not happy or even pleasant to us. We were treated like we were imposing on her. After a short discussion about just leaving, we decided to stay. 2 people ordered the seafood bisque, which was lukewarm at best and only average. I ordered the hush puppies which were burnt, or from my restaurant experience, the frying oil was very old and in need of changing. We all order the steam clams which were decent. The following day, the 2 people that ordered the seafood bisque had ill side effects. We all agreeded that we would never go back.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Sometimes great things come in small packages. It's hard to believe that the staff of this restaurant can prepare and serve wonderful meals in such a cramped space. We had to wait outside for 10-15 minutes to get a table but you can do that in Florida in February. Our scallops and mahi-mahi were as good as it gets. Wait staff is very courteous and helpful.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Some chefs can cook seafood but only a handful of chefs can cook it to perfection time after time. The Chef(s) at King Neptune get it right, not only, with their specials but with special orders as well!
This restaurant is VERY SMALL..10 tables of different sizes and heights! We went on a Tuesday night around 6:30PM. We had a party in front of us. We sat outside and the owner came out and asked if he could get us a beer or a glass of wine! We waited 20 minutes for a table which based on the size of the restaurant was not bad. We did notice many people coming in to pickup take out orders while we were waiting!
Waitstaff was great. Food was as described on menu..Would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Also, please don't be afraid to order the lobster roll. The Lobster is as fresh here as it is in Maine.
Give this place a try for lunch or dinner you will not be disappointed.

“MISLEADING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

By looking from the outside it is very misleading. Don't let that stop you from enjoying the great food that they "dish" out. They do a great job and the food is to die for. I've had the Grouper Ruben, Shrimp Scampi, and all you can eat Peel & Eat Shrimp. All very good. Get there early because they fill up fast. I shouldn't be telling this because it will make it harder for me to get in. Once seated I've asked people to join us so they wouldn't have to wait so long. It's just that kind of place. Great Food, Great People. Very Busy. ENJOY, Boomer
