We twice had dinner at this restaurant and enjoyed the food both times. The fish tank is awesome with three sharks and a couple or large eels. The pizza was great as recommended by a guy that drove miles just to have what he called the best pizza outside of New York. Also try the shrimp.

I bellied up to the bar after shopping at Ron Jon next door. The place was a madhouse with people with wristbands ordering 1 $ margaritas. I had a very decent and cheap cocktail and watched the activities. I mentioned to the bartender that the place reminded me of an amusement park and she said that the cruise ships were... More

Food is basic Americana grub but consistently tasty. I love the egg burger and tuna appetizer, pizza is good for a group. Staff is fun loving and my girl Brittany behind the bar rocks. Despite the touristy nature of the hotel n complex the grill is one that frequently serves locals and visitors alike. Could use a slightly larger draft... More

Great place for locals or visitors. Wide selection of food. Hidden inside Four Points Hotel and Cocoa Beach Surf Company. Can be very crowded.

The restaurant is located in the Sheraton so its convenient. The taxi driver told us they have amazing pizza so we tried it and it was really good. The service was slow but the people were friendly, The breakfast buffet was a super smaller version so we skipped it.

I have been coming here for 4 years now. I usually just have a drink or dinner but today since I am staying at the hotel that is attached I decided to go for breakfast. What a mistake that was. Should have known something was up when it was almost empty at 9 am. Asked for standard breakfast eggs over... More

This is a quirky, laid back beach bar right on the ocean. They advertise Hurricanes although I did not get one. The beer was cold and service was fast. The shrimp was less than wonderful but my husband's sandwich was very good.

The food was average. The atmosphere was nice. Our server was very nice and saw to it that we got what we wanted and just how we wanted. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stop and try something in the area

Visited last night with son/nephew and their families, felt robbed after 18% undeserved tip and neglected all night tough place almost empty and we had to get menus/flatware. Food took for ever, not complete and partly cold, apparently a mis-communication/staff coordination/supervision/effectiveness; I would fire them all and start fresh before this place bankrupted (such a beautiful place and location)
