My mother and I went there for an early New Year's Eve, had some appetizers and the lobster bisque soup and it was the best we ever had. We sat outside under the awnings and watched heron's and egrets fishing in the mangroves across the Intracoastal and the boats going by. We even saw the bridge go up for a... More

If you're looking for a Party atmosphere along the Inter-Coastal with inside and outside dining this is a Good Choice. Be advised during the High Season you will wait for a table. If you're looking for Fine Dining forget it...Good menu & service w/ a docking slip if you arrive by Boat. Valet parking at the door. Great place for... More

My daughter and I were down early in Florida this year and had an excellent outside table along the A1A. She definitely wanted the sea food and was very pleased with her selection. I have never been disappointed in the service or the food we have received. People are always friendly there. We always try to go on an off-hour... More

The food was fine and the service was good but I won't go again. I did not expect to be treated to a burlesques type experience at lunch. All the waitresses had on skimpy tiny strap tee shirts...showing lots of cleavage and tattoos. Most wore tiny, tiny white short, shorts...when bending over lots of "cheek leak" and little in the...

Great place to take visitors to lunch. Lunch out on the deck is wonderful on a nice day. Great view of boats going up and down the intercostal. There is also the draw bridge going up and down that everyone likes. The service is fantastic and the food is great. I really like their fresh fish grilled. Nice and light... More

This is a good place to go for lunch or a drink when the weather is good. It is right on the Intracoastal (accessible by boat). Bar food is pretty standard but sometimes specials (like fish tacos) are good

The whole birthday party mood was spoiled when waitress played dumb at the end of the meal, saying that it would be hard to split the $400 check amongst 11 people, even though it was stated in the beginning we would all be on separate checks. Then, she had to send another waitress to say that, "we just don't split... More

The Banana Boat is in a prime location for dining waterside on the Inter-Coastal Waterway. You have a choice of dining inside (with large windows with water view) or on the deck outside. A totally enjoyable experience eating, drinking and chatting while watching boats of all sizes passing by. The menu offers appetizers, pasta dishes, sandwiches and of course seafood... More

We've been here a few times, but never again. The menu is reasonable and varied (i had very good fish and chips and a well made drink) and the service was generally attentive and okay ( they seemed to be understaffed). One of our party had a salad which she swore was from the day before...terrible. But, in general the... More

The Banana Boat is my favorite place to eat on the intercostal waterway. I prefer eating on the deck where you can watch the activity on the waterway. The food is consistently good whether eating lunch or dinner. My favorite dish for lunch is the chicken stir fry. I've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed with the... More
