We've been here many times. You can sit outside (lots of covered seating) and have a drink or a meal on the water. They have a pretty private room with lots of glass windows, where we had my daughter's rehearsal dinner. The restaurant is very big, so there's not usually much trouble getting a seat. Service and food are always... More

Restaurant is located on the water. They have outside seating which is nice. We will definitely come back. The food is delicious. From the fried calamari to the sesame crusted tuna. Service wasn't bad. We will definitely come back here again

We were a bit unsure because another review site has some poor reviews but we were quite pleased with the service and the quality of the food. Prices were a bit high with some dishes running over forty dollars. But compared to the nearby Weston the prices were moderate.

Visiting from Baltimore with friends, we ate here before the Capitals/Bolts Game and the food was delicious! recommend the King Crab and shrimp tempura roll. It was drizzled in a sauce similar to apple sauce and spicy mayo, a strange combination I would have thought, but really so tasty! Also the view was really nice and it was a short... More

Next time we stopped for lunch on the deck whilst watching tide roll away 😉 we had the pork rolls & a chicken caeser salad both very good. I... More

We had our family Thanksgiving dinner here which included a 2 year old. Our waiter John Paul was wonderful and attentive. The food was delicious. The pumpkin cheesecake was out of this world. Even fussy Violet slurped it up. And the view of Tampa Bay, lit up, was breathtaking as always.

Went here for my birthday. Food was very good. My husband dropped off a cake he had made elsewhere earlier in the day as a surprise. Not 3 mins into conversation with the waiter at seating, he asked if it was a special occasion to which my husband said it was my birthday. The waiter then spilled the beans by... More

Its was a large party for a birthday. After we were seated the manager came by and said Happy birthday as well as explained that we were a very large party so it may take some time to get all of our food together so please be patient. . . Completely understandable and I commend him for setting expectations up... More
