We ate here during our first visit to NSB in 1999 but despite being local since 2000 hadn’t visited in a long time because of mixed reviews and because there were other places we enjoyed. However, the recent reviews seemed better- except for one in...which the diner reported being told to change tables to accommodate a VIP- and we were in the mood for roast beef which just doesn’t come out right in our oven on the beach so we made a reservation for a weeknight. We arrived on time and waited 10 minutes at the reception desk during which literally three staffers told us that someone would be with us shortly before being shown to our table by a fourth staffer. We ordered drinks, an appetizer, roast beef as our entree and a bottle of wine. After a mishap in which the server spilled our drinks and had to get them refilled, we received them. That wasn’t a problem, but we were long finished with them when we finally received our appetizer. The bacon wrapped scallops were very tasty but pricy at $14.95 for three small pieces. Then, the server brought a bottle of wine but it wasn’t what we ordered so we sent it back. Eventually, we were told that what we ordered wasn’t available so we ordered something else. Before it arrived, and more than 45 minutes after ordering our roast beef we were told it was sold out. We paid for our drinks and appetizer and left. The attitude of everyone we encountered was just terrible, including the manager whom we asked to turn on the heater (we were outside and told by our server that we had to ask the manager) who told us she didn’t know how to turn it on and just walked away. We suspect that the server knew that the wine she brought wasn’t what we ordered because she didn’t seem at all surprised when we told her it was not what we ordered. The man who came and told us that the roast beef was sold out acted as if we were unreasonable for having ordered it. While restaurants can and do run out of dishes, the timing in this instance was suspect because we told at a time after we should have already received our entrees. It appeared to be bait and switch. This place doesn’t deserve anyone’s patronage. The restaurant business is hard but customers shouldn’t be treated with disdain. I should have heeded the review from the patron who was relocated and never considered it. We won’t ever return- even in another 20 years. Don’t visit unless you enjoy being treated badly and enjoy paying for it.More

While the early bird specials seemed interesting and cost effective, we instead choose to order off the diner menu and so happy we did. Jennifer was a great server! We will ask for her next time. We sat outside on a cook Decenber evening and...watched a beautiful sunset while enjoying complimentary bread, butter, and seasoned oil for dipping. We each had two perfectĺy made cocktails, shrimp cocktail, french onion soup, and delicilous shaved beef sliders (we will return for that!). For our meal we had grouper and a reuben sandwich. The athmosphere coupled with great service made for a lovely evening. Thank you.More

We’re local residents and like to support the local businesses, but the service, food and managements response was beyond disappointing. My husband and I often argue that there’s a difference between chain restaurants and local fair because it’s worth the extra $$ for good food...and service. $100 down the drain, indigestion and I lost!More

Great dinner options on their early bird menu. Wonderfully delicious and a good value. My Prime Rib was among the best I’ve had dinning out in New Smyrna Beach area.

Great service! We sat inside and still had a view of the water. The food was prepared by a chef. Excellent vegetables with great seasoning.

I made reservation here over the weekend, my party was not asked, but told to move to a new table by a server and then by the manager because some "V.I.P. customers" had come in and wanted the table we had. They did not ask...us nicely or provide any further explanation. Not even as much as a "sorry". There were also multiple empty tables in our section. After being treated that way, we just decided to Take our money elsewhere. My wife called the owner about the situation the next morning to which we received no response. Never have I been treated with such blatant disrespect. I plan on warning my friends and fellow business owners about this. Also mask mandate was not enforced. 0 stars.More

Service was great. The prime rib was terrific! Best I’ve had in years. The potatoes and corn were excellent. I will definitely go back.

Stopped here for a late lunch. It's right on the river and you can sit outside on the deck to enjoy the boats going by. Food was wonderful. Hubby and I shared a delicious shrimp cocktail and New England clam chowder. Hubby had a blackened...Mahi sandwich and I had the Chicken Francaise. The rice the chicken was served with were amazing, and the vegetables were cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. Friendly staff. The inside part of the restaurant looked gorgeous, and we'll definitely return for dinner the next time we're in town.More

6/16/2020; It was our anniversary and I told them at the desk but apparently it was not relayed to the server. My cod was so so and minimal flavor, and the green beans were over cooked, not what I would expect for a restaurant of...this caliper. Our Calamari was good as was the bread. My wife's Linguine and clams were so so as well, just not the flavor I was expecting. I was told after my Valentines day review that this dinner experience would be special and we would be very pleased, sorry it did not happen.More

Service was prompt and the food is excellent. The only thing we didn't like was the pickle. Perhaps they should count the number of pickles returned with empty plates and then consider a change. Great view.
