My friend and I shared a cluster of the Alaskan King crab legs, it was so delicious. They cut them open for you, it is large legs and claws with so much meat. We almost couldn't eat it all but I did my best! The drawn butter was warm and perfect. I also had the sautéed spinach, it was very... More

Nice restaurant located upstairs taking the elevator. Beautiful view if you sit below by the water. Unfortunately we came in a little late towards closing which was fine with us so we sat on the upper area. They were able to clean up a table for us for dinner. The stone crab is delicious and the sauce served with it... More

Visit with your boat (or in more conventional way) enjoy the crab legs along with the great and friendly service. Don't miss the key lime cake. To be on a safe side make a reservation in advance. You won't regret it.

Yes, better than Joe's and without the attitude. Seafood was excellent, fresh and very well prepared. Stone crabs were fabulous as always. I just love them! The staff was excellent and so was the freshly baked bread. Yum.

Even though it was mid August, it was pleasant to sit on the dock and dine. The stone crab claws were excellent even though they were out of season. The key lime pie was really good too. I would recommend this for a relaxing and very tasty dinner.

The menu offers a wide range of seafood options. The bread was freshly baked and the servings are huge - enough to share. Ask for a grouper combo or shrimp scampi. The menu offers a wide range of seafood options. The waiter was attentive and friendly.

Stopped in for stone crab before the Marlins game. We were the only diners at the time and our service was amazing! Usually mid day side work takes over and you're lost in the hustle of FOH buzz. The stone crab were perfectly meaty and sweet and ice cold. My son enjoyed the grouper special, fresh and wonderfully appointed with... More
