Tough as shoe leather and an overdone baked potato. Salad had one tiny grape tomato. Blue cheese dressing was Faux. Wouldn't consider returning. Don't usually have this poor an experience.

Food came out on time but that was only thing that went well. Fried seafood platter was breaded so heavily that you could barely taste the seafood. Half of the food was barely even still warm. Kitchen brigade is missing the boat on several dishes. Good location deserves better food.

We have eaten there many times since moving the Florida. Food has been good and at a reasonable price. My wife loves the clam strip. However, 6 months ago we ate there and I got the seafood platter. The next two days I was sick as a dog, and I have trouble going back. All the other times were great,... More

My review should be a 3.5. The draw back for me was that this restaurant had mostly fried food on the menu. My husband had the oyster stew, which he enjoyed, but the oysters were small and limited. He also had the oyster po'boy. The oysters were fried, of course, and he said they were not too heavily breaded. I... More

We chose to have outside seating and enjoy the beautiful evening . Food was outstanding. One of the highlights was the appetizer we ordered. It was the seafood melt. So much crab and shrimp and toast. Enough for 4 people. It was delicious. We ordered the fresh salmon and also the grouper sandwich. Both were very tasty. This place is... More

A seafood restaurant with one crab dish , king crab only, that the waitress said was "over rated " . The prime rib was cold in the center . The scallop and shrimp dish ,the waitress said was the house special ,had a broken, grainy cheese sauce. My baked potato had tarter sauce served on it instead of sour cream.... More

Tried numerous times, forget it, I'm done with it. Nice views that's it. Dungeness inside dark, poor quality of fish... Fishy taste and smell when arrived at table. Not sure how people think this is good food.... To each their own I guess!

Located overlooking the Indian River, the views from the outside porch are great. We went for lunch. We ordered our favorites- clam chowder and oyster po-boys. The creamy clam chowder was not salty. The po-boys are big and come with excellent home made chips. The service was very good.
