Very good food, ice cold beer and good Latin style service. Cuban/American atmosphere. Beautiful view over No Name's Bay. There's live music sometimes. Look for a waiter called "Pita" - good service for sure! Good for after beach lunch during weekends and dinner on Fridays.

My brother and I had played a round of golf a couple of miles away and wanted to grab a bite for dinner. I ordered a cheeseburger and fries. The menu was fairly extensive so maybe I should have ordered one of the entrees. The hamburger was tough and tasteless. The "cheese" part of the cheeseburger was a piece of... More

This place has so much potential and has such a fantastic view it's such a shame that it's let down by the food and service. We asked to sit outside by the water but we were told that is reserved for patrons with dogs only, even though others were sat there without dogs. There were 5 servers on for an... More

Look at my review of the Lighthouse Cafe - Same owners. Excellent seafood and Cuban food. They cook a great "lechon."

Watch the sunset over Miami, see manatees and real boaters, eat amazing snapper and Paella, but keep it a secret. Please.

We went to Boater's Grill during a hectic time (new years eve day at lunch time), so we had some issues with service (an appetizer we ordered was out, but we didn't find out until our mains arrived; we waited for our credit cards to arrive back at the table for about 15 minutes, etc.) The food is not cheap,...

I've always liked this bustling restaurant with its beautiful location overlooking No Name harbour. As others have remarked, if you can come by boat - there's usually plenty of space to moor, often adjacent to Boater's especially if you have a small craft. The service is friendly and efficient. The menu focuses on sea food with Latin/Cuban touches (black beans,... More
