“Great Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We ate here our last night. The concierge made the reservation and when we go there we were told that they would treat us to an appetizer for our party of five. It was a shrimp and oyster combo that was great. I had the seafood platter grilled and it was good except for the crab cakes. Several had the swordfish which was the catch of the day. The highlight may have been the home made coconut cake. We all had it and would have taken one with us if we could. I wish we had discovered this earlier in our stay.

“Greasy Food at Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Typical tourist seafood joint on a wonderful dock in the Intercostal Waterway! Go for the drinks-all freshly made and NO mixes. Meals are quite forgettable.

“Memorable location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The scenic location of this restaurant is tops. We have dined here since the 1970;s and it is still good. Over the past few years, they have added more innovative modern items that improve the selection. I had a blackened cod with crab, spinach, and it was very good. Our server was friendly, however he seemed to be over stretched with tables to provide the service needed to everyone

“Excellent service, food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

I had pan seared scallops, shrimp and fish and all were excellently prepared, service was great, and the atmosphere was very good. great view looking out over the water. My wife had the tilapia and hers was also very good. They brag about their hush puppies but back it up. They were awesome. One of the best meals we had on the island.
