Always visit this restaurant when in St. Pete. Usually for lunch. Indoor and outdoor dining with umbrellas to shade from sun. Great view of boats coming in and out of marina and a pleasant dining experience. Friendly efficient staff.

been going here for several years. Please take a detour a block off of beach drive to find a classic marina view, away from the man-buns to have an elegant, yet easy going meal~

Good place for drinks but food nothing special. Very noisy by the bar but we chose to sit closer to the front of the patio away from most people. Weather was perfect, sadly the food and service were not. Shame for such a great location.
