We went on a Saturday night, and it was very busy, very loud (you almost could not talk to person across the table). Waiter was very good, but food fell flat. They do have a good wine list.

A great place to go. Love the food and the staff. Second visit and probably not the last. Both times we have seen the band Buffalo Rose/ The Skinny. It's a win win situation.

we had a bus group of 50+ people - I wanted to pay for another entry and the staff would not allow me. The food was just average. the staff was not service oriented. I would not go back on my next visit.

We dined here last evening. Food was good, but for how much you pay for your meal portions are small. Otherwise our meal tasted excellent.

Fabulous food, wonderful atmosphere and our server, Laura, was absolutely the best! I have food allergies and she was knowledgeable, supportive and positive. The risotto rocked and the sea bass was scrumptious! This is a must stop for seafood in Florida. Right on the water...More
