If you want to smoke and eat you need to sit outside on the deck which is in the parking lot. Poor service and average Cysco food. The inside looked nice and there was a guitar player playing. Not a place I'd go back to.

We had the most well prepared meal in two weeks at the beach. Our waitress was gracious, the mussels were fresh and delicious, great sangria, and three cheers for the shrimp tacos and coconut rice. So glad we gave this place a try.

We stopped for late afternoon appetizers and drinks. The key lime margaritas were delicious. The appetizers were good and the service was good. We enjoyed visiting with George who was originally from Missouri.

I had a craving for seafood and my fiancé found this place when searching for somewhere to eat a late lunch. We weren't disappointed. We started with the Captain's Punch and the Blur Floridian for drinks and they were delicious. Not so sweet that they...More
