We went here for lunch this afternoon. The mahi sandwich that my friends got looked good and was a decent size piece of fish. I got the sampler, fried; some of the fish looked as if it was bought from the supermarket already battered and they just heated it up. Everything tasted fine, but I was just a little disappointed...

Coconut shrimp- excellent, scallops Rockefeller- excellent. And make sure you go out back and see the school of big tarpon that hang out, hoping for scraps from the seafood market next door. This is a very rare fish to see up close. Very cool!

Very popular with locals. This review is based on three visits for dinner. The fried large shrimp are very good. The shrimp scampi just average. I liked the salad and since I always visit on a Tuesday, I always get their homemade turnip greens which are delicious. Also, the hush puppies are super. I recommend this for a good family... More

OMG. LOVED this place. 4 of us all enjoyed very much. Grouper, salad, and baked potato, hush puppies were ALL wonderful! Blue Marlin cocktail also very good. After we ate we went out to water and saw the biggest Tarpon! Highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner!!! Server was also fantastic! Thank you CFH!! :)

The waitress was kind of nice view is spectacular and the ambience of the building is truly nice. But that's the end of the good side. For the price they're charging you expect a very nice atmosphere but instead it lacks an atmosphere for casual relaxed dining. We started dinner off with a margarita and right up front we were...

The seafood here is typical good and it was pleasant eating there today with our family. The tuna tataki was somewhat tasteless except for the sesame seeds, plus not quite as fresh as we like. The fried dishes are typical of other restaurants in the area. Our waitress was not spot-on, forgetting to bring the beers that were ordered. Their... More

Our server started our dining off the wrong foot. No smile or enthusiasm, did not read us the specials and took our order and was gone. She seemed bored and we were in her way. Disappointing. The $10 calamari was worth about $5. Grouper sandwich with all the fixings was delicious for only $10. Overall, an average restaurant. Won't go... More

It was scallop season when we visited so the place was busy! Even so, our party of 6 was seated right away for a seafood dinner. This place is attractive inside and boasts a nice view of a marina. Our table was near the windows so we could look out at the sunset and scenic harbor while enjoying the air... More

Nice for watching the boats come in. Food was delicious - good service. Seems very popular with the locals- that speaks loudly!

We went back two nights for a casual dinner and for the beer shrimp. Me and my teenage sons enjoyed the humor and being served by Kerri Ann.
