“Awful!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Do not go to eat here. The lunch we had was disgusting. The popcorn shrimp was terrible - all burnt and rubbery. The onion grilled mahi mahi was terrible - like eating a cooked shoe. After our meals were served we didn't even get any utensils to eat the meal with. Terrible, terrible. Used to be good - not anymore. Don't waste your money!

“Used to be a good place to bring out of town guests.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

They need to update their menu - not sure what clientele they are after.
Seafood just ok. Fried clams a little gritty.

“Fried...Fried & Fried!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

I have not had the best experience in this restaurant. Food service OK, but food is a heavy fried menu. In some cases, I have had food over fried and not taste that great! With so many good places to eat in Vero Beach, I would suggest you give some others a chance first!
