Late lunch...lobster special for $14.99. Very good. Friendly staff, nice view of the barges, cruise ships in the water. Recommended by a local or we would not have found it. Highly recommend.

This was a place that was recommended by the hotel........good atmosphere for the beach theme. However the seafood was made from frozen seafood and you could tell by the sogginess of the crab legs. Not what we were looking for at all. It was ok but we are looking for fresh. The high point was the view from our table... More

Recommended by a friend, this was our first time at this restaurant. We made reservations for 6:45 and were seated promptly and beverages were attended to, Our waitress advised that ALL 'fish" on the menu were tilapia. And I ordered the grouper nuggets instead. A friend was similarly discouraged from the Escargot and settled for a loaded Baja Burger. My... More

Pleasant family atmosphere with a nice view of the water, friendly service and good food. Loved the seared tuna and the Baaa ja Bread (sp?) was a tasty side. Being from coastal New England myself the Clam Chowder wasn't the best I have ever tasted, but it was good. They had a band playing on the outside adjunct, allowing people... More

The waitress took our drink order and our appetizer order, had plantains and spicy shrimp, both tasted great. I ordered grouper tacos, my wife had a caesar salad with lobster, we were a group of 6, everyone was... More

The taste of the food was amazing, but they gave you very small portions. Earlier in the week when my family had ordered fried shrimp they were given twelve and when they ordered it here they only received nine. It was the same price as the other restaurants, even using the "Early Bird" menu. I also did not like how... More

The bartender, waitress and hostess are RUDE!!!! Hostess more interested in texting on her damaged screen cell phone then seating guests. Bartender and waitress more interested in darting out behind the fence and gate which is to the left of the building then attending to customers... At one point all three were there and only one bus boy and one... More

We always eat at Baja Chowder when we go to Port Canaveral, Florida for a cruise. The food is great and the staff is wonderful. Everyone is friendly and the service is great. You can see the cruise ships from the restaurant.
