We have been coming here for years now. The food is by far the best on the island. We usually start with the shrimp egg roll, and the scallops with pulled pork ( I know, sounds strange, but it works!) Then I always have to have the shrimp and grits ( it comes topped with bacon!), and the fish is... More

I have been here several times and always have delicious food. The fish of the day is so fresh and the hush puppy appetizer is something I look forward to. To top it off, they have great service and ambiance. Make sure to have a reservation!

Everyone loved their dinner dishes. There was nothing boring about the composition of flavors, texture, and presentation. Excellent service, seriously, one of the best waiters I ever encountered. A little pricey but worth every penny. Very nice decoration, good for a memorable celebration or just a really nice outing with friends or family. Do not miss this place when you... More

This is a top notch restaurant and I would definitely visit again next time we visit Anna Maria Island. It is different from chain restaurants... More

We had a reservation as this is a small place but the food, service, drinks were impeccable. From our greeting from the hostess, our chat with the bartender to our server Shepard it was an evening we will remember!!!

We had heard a lot about this restaurant. We looked at the menu the last time we were in town and decided to come back and try it. As we live out-of-town, we booked a hotel across the street and spent the night. The restaurant is very cute inside. Our waitress was not very friendly and seemed overwhelmed. We ordered... More

The service was amazing, we come here yearly from Arizona and this was our first time here. It will not be the last as its at the top of our list offering the best fresh... More
