Rachel was our server, what a pleasant personality. We had the SheCrab soup that we passed back and forth. A doz oysters and a Crab Louie. Excellent. Quick Service and we always enjoy here in our Snowbird part of the year. Have fun here we...did. Oysters are small and the shucker cut most if them in half!More

We stopped for lunch last week. The views from the deck were very nice, staff was friendly and attentive. However the food was average at best. I had the Grouper Ruben sandwich. It was very bland with very little taste. My wife had the Ahi...tuna salad and again the tuna was basically tasteless. Both dishes were in need of spices and flavor. With so many other places to eat we probably will not be back here while spending 5 months in the area. BObKMore

The food was very good. We had a larger party and had grouper sandwiches, oysters, calamari, yellowtail stuffed avocado, triple tail (daily speciall), and mahi. All were good. The cocktails were good and beer was cold. The food and drinks are slightly overpriced, but not...so much that it would stop us from going there. There is adequate outdoor seating (under a roof) with a view of the marina/water. A highway runs close and you can hear the noise from the highway, but it's not overly distracting. Our service was adequate but probably would've ordered another cocktail if she had come back sooner (they weren't very busy).More

Went because we had read it was dog-friendly and we were traveling with an old dog. Wasn't prepared for it being on the 2nd floor! No worries though, an elevator in the front of the building. Took a seat at the outside bar for lunch,...with no wait. Friendly and informative waitress and staff in general. Beautiful view of the marina and bridges. Driftwood art on the walls. I had the crab croissant sandwich, filled with 3 types of crab and simply delicious! Husband had the grouper sandwich and said it was fresh and very tasty. We are from south Florida, so he is particular about his grouper! The dog could rest under the bar and enjoy the view. Great selection of beer and cocktails. Would definitely visit again!More

Big shout out to our server. Mandy. This was our 5th stop Sat night after visiting several downtown bars/eateries. Always a good meal here, but she was a breath of fresh air. Great sense of humor!

We are here visiting friends and they took us to this restaurant that sits on the water. Lovely ambiance, relaxing and quiet. We sat outside that overlooked the water and made decisions as to what boats we would buy once done with dinner..lol. Over comes...our server STEVE! I will tell you in this review how great the food was, because it was from start to finish...I will tell you how comfortable we were in this restaurant and how great the view was...but none of this mattered to us as much as the service we got from Steve. He was relaxed, friendly, helpful and very very informative. We were a group of 5 and we want certain things done certain ways. We wanted our she crab soup first and then our salad and appetizers. Could they make us shrimp pot stickers for dinner when in fact they were only on the menu for lunch I think. Steve got us. He answered the questions. He offered solutions to replacing this with that. He was cheerful and most of all he never ever got the least bit flustered. A real professional. We were a bit of a demanding group and he rode the wave like a pro. We started with the soup as I said and that was creamy, sweet and loaded with crab. Next I had a ceasar salad that didn't rock my world, but thats ok. Next came the shrimp pot stickers and a seafood dip with chips. AMAZING. I ordered the stuffed shrimp and it was to die for. I asked for no rice and when Steve offered me a couple substitutions I declined. When the meal came out he told me he made sure I got extra broccoli. Thanks Steve!! My husband ordered the Creole seafood. He was hoping it had a bit more kick, but he still really liked it. Our friends ordered the stuffed grouper and raved about it. Steve was there to refill drinks, bring out more water and make sure we were happy. As I said..there are servers and then there are SERVERS. We absolutely loved him. Thankyou Steve!!More

The soap in the bowl is an irritating mess! They are trying to sell this gritty paste and it is kind of gross in this big bowl and tends to be all over the counter. I would not sell it at a restaurant venue.

Probably not, since you have to go through the restaurant to get to the outside seating.
