“Right on the River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Some of the best seafood as you watch the boats move back and forth to the ocean. Tiki bar is also fun.

“Tiki Bar, Restaurant, & Fish market on the River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We went there last night for happy hour drinks. What a crowd! We were lucky & got a table right on the edge of the deck by the river. The drinks were served promptly and efficiently. It is a nice place to get the evening started. We watched the fishing boats and private boats come in from a day of fishing as we enjoyed a conversation with friends. When the boats come in from off shore they open the railroad bridge and the route 71 bridge. We need to go back soon and try having a dinner there. From the looks of everything I suspect it might be a good experience if it is not slammed with people.

“Seafood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The place is packed. Be prepared to wait 25-30 min for a table by the water. The food is good but not great. Being that it is such a big place the orders take a long time to come (45min) for the lobster. It is one of those places that you go there only once because everyone knows its name.

“Food good, but heat and flies are brutal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Took my husband out for his birthday. He wanted seafood, my kids don't like seafood but there menu had a variety of things. The food was very good but we happened to go on one of the hottest days and it was extremely hot in the restaurant and the flies were brutal! I would go back but not in the summer!
