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.

Business lunch while working at the Cape. The reviews I read were mixed, and most revolved around drinks and the view. It should have been a warning. "Award winning" clam chowder was barely lukewarm. It had very little flavor, and a grainy texture unlike any chowder I've ever had. The grouper sandwich had decent sized chunks (not a filet) but... More

First time in Florida a place that knows how to cook fish and chips. Lime pie like your mother could only dream about. Service was top notch. Go there.

There's some good seafood restaurants along the row dockside but this one has its own charm. It's a lot bigger inside than it looks from the outside and your chance of getting seated is better than some of the other places that appear larger. There is a large inside seating area, a smaller outside open area and another outside bar... More
