We took the family out for my son's 17th birthday, instead of getting a sitter for our 4yo daughter, we brought her along. We had a party of 7. We were seated right away and we were quickly greeted by a tub full of toys...More

Everything here was fried and heavy and unappealing. I ordered a martini, and the BARTENDER asked me how to make it! Interesting funky, shabby chic decor, but man they don't know what they're doing.

Just celebrated my birthday at the Moorings. What a great dinner. The food was so fresh. I rarely eat out because I have a very delicate stomach, but I can tell you from the fish to clam (caught that day) , the fried bread stick,...More

We were looking for the Florida Seafood experience and after reading reviews drove right over. Even though they were busy, the owner seated us right away and brought a free appetizer that included fried alligator! The teen boys loved that. We all pretty much ordered...More

Does not look like much from the outside but the food is really good. The staff is very eager to please but quite inexperienced. Recommended dishes: The pan fried scrod (=cod when we were there) and the scallops. Friendly proprietor who walks around and makes...More

A perfect experience from beginning to end! Al, the owner, greeted us at the door and brought out a complimentary shrimp appetizer, followed by another free sampling of some fish (and alligator), followed by the coldest beer I've ever had, some cole slaw and bread...More

A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
