“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

Located right on the water and with outside seating, this place has great low key atmosphere, especially on a warm, sunny day. My husband, now 11 month old son and I have returned a few times. The meals are tasty and reasonable priced (at least for lunch--that's the only time we have gone). The service is prompt and pleasant. Give it a try!

“hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We caught lunch at Grouper's on the waterfront on a nice sunny day. We kind of accidentally found it as it's not real obvious to a first time traveler. Although it seemed a little strange at the back of a retail complex the waterfront beckoned. When we entered for lunch around 1 PM the hostess and sole waitress warned us she was working alone and it would be a while until we'd be eating. Thankfully we were not in a hurry to get anywhere. The humor of it was that their service was better than many other restaurants with full staff. That waitress had eyes in the back of her head and kept our drinks filled and the service was actually pretty good. The salads were extremely fresh and crisp and the calamari nicely done. Both our meals were excellent, and I would readily eat there again.

Worst $50 I ever spent! Service was slow and poor! Grouper was dry. Beer was flat. Need I say more!

“Just average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

You can see the river but the food is just okay. A little pricey but your paying for the
river view.
