A great little hang spot for dinner, drinks and music. Just make sure you get there early if you want a table to listen to music and dinner, they fill up fast. Had great food and service and fun time.

We were there while on vacation. Place is easy to find. Great staff, very friendly. We took our small dog and had no issue. Wife had the crab legs I had the shrimp tacos. Both were great. We really loved the atmosphere.

Short rib sandwich and key lime martini made a fantastic lunch. Happy to have given this place a shot.

Lived here for 20years and haven't found a better place for grouper sandwich. Better than the port, Beaches, or seafood specialty restaurants. Nice to have a local bar to look out over the water without the Disney crowds.

People dancing the two-step not to country music, but to 60’s & 70’s classic rock? I see the tiki decor and the theme is all over the place... but where’s the Island sound... and where even, is the food? Burgers they had and I think...More
