Nothing special however the boat ride was cool. They dont let you leave the resturant once you are on the island which is stupid you should at least be allowed to view the beaches!

Take the restaurant ferry out, from Palm Harbor marina - $6, and enjoy the marine life on the way. Restaurant is pleasant, quiet when we were there, and the food is good and not too pricey.

We were going to sit outside but we’re swarmed with bugs. The staff quickly accommodated us and we moved inside. The food and drinks were good. We ordered salads and fish sandwiches.

Service was great! Enjoyed our lobster and seafood dinners at a table comfortable for 6, with windows for viewing outside, and acoustics reasonable for hearing in a large room.
