Food is not great. Close to our home and we really like the staff. For whatever reason the food is just not great. Seems like it should be. I wish I could say more.

Sea food prices over priced for the area. Better value elsewhere. Pork chop dinner and BBQ ribs were very good, price ok.

Great view of the water so try to secure a window table. Very reasonable prices for food and drinks. The lime mahi mahi was very good as was the beef entree that my husband ordered. Key lime pie was too sweet and offered nothing special. Service was efficient and friendly. Good parking which is a plus for this crowded area.

This place never disappoints. The menu is HUGE but I always get the same fried platter. The onion rings are MONSTER! Never seen any that large. I usually get 1/2 order because the meals are quite large and delicious and you don't want to waste any room. Their bread always warm and fresh. The salads always cool and refreshing. The... More
