I've only eaten here once, early afternoon lunch, and had the crabcakes. They were great, full of crabmeat, excellent seasoning. The vegetables were swimming in butter - yummy, but not too calorie friendly. I would have liked a steamed or grilled vegetable option. The service was good, food is freshly prepared so it takes time, not like those restaurants that... More

If you've got a boat, just pull-up to the dock. Food is good as is the service. Lots of Itallian items I.e. Pasta.

We went with a large party. Diner reservations were not excepted. We had no problem being seated as the place was not that crowded. Like a Diner the menu was very diverse. Everything from American to Italian to Greek. The service was very good. My wife and I shared a Cocoanut Shrimp for an appetizer and it was very good.... More

Gentleman who seated us was humorless and not friendly. Our food took about an hour and rockfish was tasteless and veal overcooked. We liked the meatloaf. Not worth the trip.

We had the seafood mac-n-cheese which was good but was floating in butter. It came with a piece of roasted cauliflower. No salad. No green veggie. Apparently there was a "bread bar" which the server did not tell us about. Had the fried calamari. It was nothing special and $10.

Very poor wine choice. Rex Goliath at $7.00 very small glass. Husband had grilled rockfish. Dry, tasteless, drowned in a cornstarch sauce. Side salad pathetic, 2 tiny orange grape tomatoes, white onion, 2 slices cucs and iceberg lettuce. They have a bread bar with old stale bread sitting out with flies on it. Husband ordered a beer,they sell bottled only... More

I have been here several times over the past couple of years and went here this morning for breakfast. We had the place to ourselves which I have noticed seems to be the way this place is headed as the crowds that were once here seem to have found another spot (although this is my first time here for breakfast)....

This is now my favorite restaurant at the DE seashore, located along the Indian River. The decor is eclectic as is the menu and the wait staff. There is NOTHING cookie cutter about anything. Everything is made fresh on site and DELICIOUS! Make sure you save room for dessert, made by mom! Our server was very attentive and excited about... More

The décor is very cool and unusual. Also, this is a waterfront restaurant. I have had drinks and appetizers here...both average and the pricing is high.

I have mixed feeling about this place. I have been there twice, once for dinner and then again for lunch. The dinner was tasty, but way overpriced for what you get. They think a lot of themselves. It is a cute, different kind of atmosphere, but I don't believe I will go back. There are so many different restaurants to... More
