BOGO drinks till 10 pm!!! This place is great for drinks, dancing, and people watching from upstairs. Indoor and outdoor setting. Food is pretty good too.

Popular place, especially during happy hour which is why they have been around for so long. Service can be slow and it is very loud inside. However, food has always been good, especially the seafood, mahi sandwiches, salads, etc.

This time of year the weather is so pleasant and conducive to outside dining. Thus did I take a shaded table on the sidewalk. I ordered the Southwest chicken tortilla salad. As usual, it was very good. Service was excellent, from the kitchen staff and from my waitress, Jessica. The meal was fairy priced. I'll be back.

Been here many times for lunch, dinner and happy hour but last Sunday was our first time for brunch. Crab cake benedict was delicious. Complimentary mimosas for the ladies who order an entrée was a great bonus. Several of the other restaurants on 2nd offer brunch but also played very loud music so you couldn't have a conversation. While you... More

We had skipped lunch so went for dinner during happy hour. Arrived around 5:30. Draft beers were 2 for 1 - even all the craft beer, which a lot of places do not include. We had... More

On the first Sunday of each month, the Jazz Brunch Music Fest is held at the downtown Fort Lauderdale band shell along the New River. It is a fun venue with live music and lots of families out enjoying the local flavor of the event. When you get hungry, head on over to Tarpon Bend in the Himmarshee section for... More

I have never eaten food here nor would I. I mean it might be good but to me it is just a place to come for happy hour and meet your local buddies. Or hang out on the upper deck and watch the college girls try to walk in fancy heels to turn on the banker types. Happy hour here... More
