Greg, the restaurant manager, ensure everything goes smoothly. We love the chopped Italian or beet salad as an appetizer. All the fish dishes are really wonderful. The eggplant stack ( on the starter... More

Have been to the river location twice now. Once for an event we had catered there in the back room where they did a SPECTACULAR job with everything. Recently went for dinner at sunset. The sun is blinding as it gets lower in the sky so the blinds are drawn but as soon as the glare is gone they open... More

We went there for lunch on Saturday. Hardly anybody, food and service were good. Nice view on the ocean. We decided to make a reservation for dinner that same day at 7:30 pm. Don't bother making a reservation, it's useless. A couple in front of us had no reservation and was told there was 15-20 minutes wait. Even with our... More

Seven of us had an 8pm reservation, even though it wasn't really needed. Took way too long to receive our drinks and to take our order! However, they get a good rating on the food alone. Very good, and I highly recommend the Crispy Duck with Orange Sauce!!

Four of us greeted and seated right away..no wait...More than one server all of them very cordial and polite...A nice comfortable atmosphere. Had drinks before dinner...they made me the wrong drink but gladly corrected it. Not rushed, the sunset over the river was very nice. All four us enjoyed our dinner. A bit pricey for drinks and food. We had... More

We have visited this restaurant twice, once on Easter a year ago and last weekend. On both visits the food was not good. My wife's duck entrée on the Easter visit was dry and way over cooked. Last weekend, my lamb chop entrée consisted of two very small, over cooked chops. My wife had a seafood combination that was way... More

Service is excellent but the food is hit or miss. We took the CEO of the company I work for to dinner there. Needless to say we were disappointed. The prime rib I ordered medium rear was so over cooked I could hardly cut it. The filet the CEO ordered was so dry and over cooked he could not chew... More

This is sort of a fancier place, white table cloths, etc. Problem is the sunset is why you go but the sun is so bright they have to put the shades down so go if a little cloudy. A little pricey but over all good food and service.

As usual, the food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. This establishment really knows how to cater to their clientele. It has been a favorite of ours for years.

Good food, good service. We went to this restaurant thinking we would view a beautiful sunset since the restaurant faces west overlooking the Indian River. However, there is no deck and in the restaurant shades are pulled down when the sunset gets too much glare. My opinion is there should be a deck for dining with shade provided for comfort.
