The food, view and employees was wonderful. I go there every time I'm there on vacation. It's a nice place to eat dinner and watch the dolphins swim at the same time. I recommend this restaurant if your ever in John's Pass!!

You will always get a good meal and at a fair price .Great view of John's Pass and lots to do. Many people walk the dock and most always you will see someone from back home walking the dock.

Located right in John's Pass. Very good seafood choices & cocktail menu. Good service although it does get very busy at dinner time.

I was reminded of the lyrics of the Eagles' Hotel California. They may have been friendly at some point but I expect they haven't had that spirit there since 1979. (They opened in '78.) Granted, we came in at 8:30pm on a Saturday (with no...More

Seated very quickly, we were a group of six on Saturday evening. The fish and chips and cheaper items were good but the lobster and scallops overcooked. Drinks were good with fun coconut souvenir cups. Staff was friendly. We didn't bother to send the food...More
