We almost walked past this place and were so glad we didn't! The food and service were outstanding. Wine list was great. Fish was fresh and delicious and better than anything we had previously in Delray Beach. Outside dining wasn't available when we visited and the inside decor is nothing to shout about but COME FOR THE FOOD!

Knowledgeable, friendly service paired with yummy food. We, both, ordered a salad along with an entree of grouper, smashed potatoes and asparagus. We felt like we hit the jackpot finding this gem during the off season and look forward to return to enjoy a variety of entrees from the menu and specials.

Found this wonderful restaurant quite by accident as we were strolling Atlantic Ave on a recent summer evening. Small, intimate and quiet. The food was absolutely amazing and our group of 4 had no complaints. Reasonably priced compared to some of the other bigger restaurants in Delray. We will return as much as possible !

This seafood-centric entry on the main thoroughfare in Delray Beach, is a delightful choice for very good to excellent food. Our group of 3 all were intrigued by the coffee and pecan glazed salmon that was downright addictively delicious. The atmosphere is warm and atmospheric in the evening. The place is not large, so a reservation is pretty much a... More

Find this at the other end of Atlantic Ave separated from the hustle.We got there just as they were opening and sat at the bar. The bartender was wonderful. We had Blue Point Oysters shucked right in front of us and the fish nuggets recommended by our bartender. Both were outstanding. We then moved on to the crab and lobster... More

You will always get a and wonderfully presented meal here - along with thoughtful wine list choices. I recommend pretty much everything on the menu. Mostly stick with seafood, but steak, soups, salads, are good too. Favorites Appetizers: Potato Crusted scallops, Seafood Trio (Shrimp scallop, Crab cake), Seafood bar choices. Salads very good too. Mains: Yellowtail any way: the chef... More

I have wintered in Delray for 20+ years and whenever I am asked for the name of restaurant to recommend, I usually tell people about this one. It has been consistently great time after time. The seafood is the star but there are other options as well so anyone can find an above average meal. The Tower is my favorite... More

Tucked in between, you might miss this very small restaurant along Atlantic Ave. The food was fresh and the menu varied. We had a pleasant meal with friends. Be sure to make a reservation since seating is limited.
