Went there last Friday night for the first time, and probably the last time. 5 of us. To be fair two enjoyed their meal, the salmon was apparently quite tasty. My lady and I ordered their specialty, barbeque. She had the spare ribs, and I the pulled pork and beef brisket. The pork was dry and the brisket tough. There was a nice selection of 5 sauces to put on the entrée, and I tried all five and found them acceptable. The coleslaw was very good. Her spare ribs were very fatty and also dry. Our wine was served in plastic cups. There was live music, and it made conversation difficult, although the music was good....just not during the dinner hour. The view is of the Myakka River, a slow meandering waterway, the deck of the restaurant is right next to the shore, it is peaceful and serene. If you are looking for a throwback to "old" Florida, then this is your place, but probably better to go and listen and not to eat.
