“great decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Great place to come with the family for that beachy feel. It is the closet thing you'll come to that reminds you of all the great resturants in Fort Myers. The whole inside is done very tropical with bamboo, tiki and beach grass. Wonderful selection of tropical drinks. Great sandwiches with fresh crispy cole slaw. Portions are large enough to share. Prices very reasonable. Salads are tasty and very different. Service was excellent. Very friendly. Clean. A great place to escape the drab cold weather.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Huge menu of items, if you go down to the nautical mile and you have group that isnt sure what they want this place can prolly handle them all. Food was ok, prices were ok, I would say 2.5 stars out of 5

“Fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Casual atmosphere. Caribbean decor and good deals. Calamari is the best I have ever had. Coconut banana chicken is a nice change. House salad is excellent

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We moms went out for lunch one afternoon and enjoyed the wonderful food and service at Waves in St. Clair Shores. The décor is the first thing you take in as you walk in the front door. It is consistent throughout the restaurant and enjoyable. The food has always been very delicious. Our service was wonderful. Everything about this experience was great.

“dont eat here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Total junk!. Ordered 2 Tiki Goddess drinks, terrible, tasted like gas, no pineapple juice cheap vodka. Appetizer crab spread had burnt black pita points. My Tiger shrimp was ok, my girlfriend had salmon that was raw, she sent it back and a smaller piece came back, they cut the thick part off! service was bad, had to ask other waitresses to get ours. $55.00 for junk, Very disappointing, never returning
