We dined on the blackened yellowtail snapper lunch special with black beans and rice. The food was very well prepared and made for a happy birthday lunch choice. Their mojito was great tasting but should be served in a larger glass. Don't order a Bahama Mama it is a premix they really need to rethink. Service by Derek at bar... More

I've been here twice and both times the food was good and their service prompt as well as friendly. Valet parking makes it easy to just walk in. The meals were average proportion and the desserts even better. Indoor and outdoor seating right on the water with a large indoor bar.

I enjoy watching the boats travel on the intracoastal while eating excellent seafood and listening to reggae. Banana Boat is a piece of old Florida which will hopefully stay that way.

The food is ok but really over priced in my opinion. Typical waterfront nonsense. The decor has not been updated in 35 plus years😳. The service is pretty good. Not warm but efficient. The "bar" scene is hilarious!

This restaurant is located on the intercoastal. Their fish dishes are delicious and the waitresses are friendly and the service is good. This is a good casual place to hang out have a beer or two. Parking can be a problem because it has become very well known and is frequented by the locals as well as tourists. You get... More

My wife and I are suckers for oceanfront dining, so this restaurant being situated on a dock on the intercoastal was right up our alley. The fact that the food and service were as good as they were brought us back a second time. We ate on the outdoor dock in Summer and had a ball. It was great watching... More

Hadn't been to the Banana Boat in many years and never to this location. The view on the intracoastal waterway is wonderful. Service was very good and the appetizers - we were there for Friday night appetizers and cocktails - were excellent.
