Our over all experience was good. The ambiance is a little drab. Our food was very good. Basic options but perfectly prepared.

This is a must try if you are visiting Fort Pierce. The food is amazing. I had the Lobster Bisque and it was delicious. My entree was the lobster and it was HUGE and the price was so worth it. 5 stars from me!

I don't think they take reservations. Sometime there is a wait and sometimes not. It is worth the wait.
