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

The decor is an eclectic collection of things covering the walls and ceiling. Food is ample and pretty good. Lasagna and chicken parm are fab. If you have a boat, you can dock here. Come early it gets crowded.

What a terrific place! The food was excellent the service was excellent and the place was so nice. Eclectic decor was warm, happy and inviting. There is a great outdoor area overlooking the water. I highly recommend this place. It's off the beaten path, but a true gem.

On vacation in the area. Wanted nice dinner with view of water with my son and his wife and two sons. We arrived at restaurant and noticed all the window seats were taken but there were other tables around with good view. Restaurant was less than 1/4 filled. Host seated us as far away from view and other people as... More
