Food was great, atmosphere was relaxing. Right on the St. johns River, great scenery while you eat inside or out. We have eaten there several times. Prices are very reasonable as well!

I've always seen this place from the St. John's River and wanted to go there. I finally got my chance on a Saturday afternoon. We went by car and found it quite easily.

We were visiting friends and they brought us to this restaurant. They said we had to try one of their favorites places. Brandon was a great server! He anticipated needs and was excellent in suggesting items!
