Group of 21 who'd eaten like royalty all week long were a bit spoiled and disappointed by the limited seafood menu; think sports bar type offerings. But service was friendly.

We found this delightful little restaurant by chance, and finished up eating here 4 more times, the specials are special but the all you can eat fish on a Wednesday and Friday was delicious if this place was at the bottom of our road we would eat there every day. And there live music as well.

Off the beaten path a great little small location with great good and beer. A very friendly atmosphere. The fish tacos were fantastic. Has a great view and just a nice spot to stop and get a quick bite to eat.

A Friday night for dinner for our last night visiting the area-this place was packed! A bit tricky to find a parking space,but worth it. Food was served quickly and it's was tasty. this place is such a treasure-very old school Florida coast. We love to visit non-chain restaurant -Bert's did not let us down.

We were there the night Hurricane Matthew was busy upsetting the East Coast. We were entertained by a fantastic blues/soul band. We ate super food whilst being expertly attended by Danielle who was not only very professional but charming with it. Wish thus was our local and if we were to return to this area again would certainly re-visit.

Went last night on family recommendation. Did not disappoint!! All four of us had shrimp plates in either fried or blackened. All fantastic!! Homemade chips were crisp and perfectly fried. Not fancy but great atmosphere. Looking forward to a return visit!!

If you are looking for a silver service restaraunt, then this is NOT for you. They do not have a pot washer as the plates and cutlery are all disposible. BUT, the food is excellent, we ate here a couple of times and were never disappointed, from the homemade Chips (We call them crisp), to the amazing shrimp dinner, buffalo... More

This was our first time here, but will not be the last. We drove to Matlache and shopped the boutique stores. Then we walked over to the restaurant. At first I thought it was really small, but then the hostess showed us an entire dining room in the back which is over the water. This was a great view! We... More

75 year oldtime Waterfront Restaurant and Bar with a Million Dollar view. Local seafood. Both local and national entertainment with no cover charge. Recommended by Southern Living, Coastal Living, Florida Travel & Life, Boston Globe, and American Airlines to mention a few. Quality food at reasonable prices. Great place to relax, enjoy the view and perhaps to see dolphins and/or manatees.
