This place is a local favorite. It offers waterfront dining and live music. The burgers and appetizers are great. Saturdays and Sundays are great for the atmosphere.

Cheese fries appetizer is second only to outback. Awesome! I've had most of the menu and the best item, I think, is the fish tacos. Grouper sandwich is good as is grouper Reuben. Burger was also very good. Shrimp poboy also good. Fried scallops were terrible so avoid that one. Great bar scene as well!

Nothing to write home about. Been here a few times and the food is just ok,when it didn't suck.service generally sucks except the one time I sat at the tiki bar, Christina the bartender was the only great thing about it! She made delicious drinks too. So I'll give two stars.

I decided to get 'take out' for the family based on Trip Advisor reviews. Good decision. We ordered 2 burgers and the Scallops dinner. Burgers were prepared nicely. Wife commented that her side of potato salad with her burger was very good, tasted bacon in it and was a nice touch. I had the scallops with broccoli and side salad.... More

Christine is an awesome bartender! Always attentive and friendly. Food is spot on good! I've never had a bad experience there. I'm am so glad the new owners saved this place from oblivion.

I accidentally discovered this place after being detoured onto 580 off of Tampa road. To avoid traffic I sneaked over to St Pete drive but was trapped by the light rear the canal where it reentered 580. Glancing out my window I saw an abandoned building juxtaposed to a sad looking bumpy parking lot. A big sign from a bygone... More

The past reviews tempted us to give this restaurant a try. What a great surprise. Sort of "hidden" off the main highway, but easy to find. First appearance, it looks like, and with all due respect a "dive bar". Couldn't be anything further from the truth. We dined inside, and the area was spotless. The wait staff was extremely attentive.... More

Great get together spot. Outside patio is where it's at! Decent menu. Fish n chips was good and plentiful. The bubble machine was a cute touch to a biker style bar.

Unique eatery with a whimsical, local appeal that will surprise the most seasoned traveler, snowbird or business professional passing through the area. The food options were vast, the portions plentiful and the prices very attractive. My business group sat outside and enjoyed a nice lunch, with great service while respecting our need for privacy during our business lunch. The only... More
