Food is good, but not special for us, we usually have the Grouper while in Florida, its the new fish taking the place of the tilapia , fresh water farm raisable fish, in the area.

Food was good, staff were good, view was good but don't go there for their special offer prices expecting a good plate full. Half the usual price but half the amount. I left hungary!! I enjoyed it and would recommend.

The food was very good. Service OK. Bar waitress was excellent. We sat inside because of the heat but still had a nice water view.
