Food was wonderful! The mussels appetizer was popular, even with our picky eater. The seafood was all very, very good. There are lots of Windows with great views! And the drinks from the bar were well made and worth the cost.

It is okay. I had the fish and chips. The Cole slaw was dry and lacked flavor. The haddock was good. Caesar salad was good. They need more inside tables or a way to cool the outdoor area. Tonight the outdoor temp is 88.

We had lunch here and the food was better than expected. I got the Flounder with lobster sausage and it was not second to anyone. Grouper blackened was my wife's selection. Good choices.

The food was a little disappointing but the wait staff was very friendly and courteous. The Grouper wasn't quite as good as expected and the appetizers were just OK. Good scenery overlooking the waterway.

This place has so much potential given the awesome view of the intercostal but their food is really lousy and overpriced. They have good entertainment on Friday nights but that's about it.

We went here on Friday night. The restaurant was not very busy and now I know why. We live in Sarasota and had relatives from out of state come in. They wanted to go to a water front restaurant. We picked this one as they took reservations and we didn't want to wait as this was the 4th of July... More
