We walked in and didn't see a hostess. After a minute I found a server that said just sit anywhere we wanted. Shortly thereafter our waitress informed us she had been double sat and had every table in this dining area. She was nice and doing her best, but this place was very unorganized. I don't blame the waitress, seems... More

Went there today for lunch. Meet up with family there was 11 of us. The staff was very friendly, the food was AMAZING and you can't beat the view. Seated us uptop on outside deck. Lobster Basque was best I have ever had. Margarita was scrumptious. 1st time any of us have been there and we will definetly be back.

Love the Coconut Shrimp here. They have a Nacho appetizer that is really good but bring your appetite because this will feed six. The view is very nice. Our server Nick was great! Watch the sunset in the evenings.

We had a wonderful time on the top deck patio that overlooks the harbor. It is across from Johns Pass so it is not a parking nightmare. We ordered the nachos and they were ridiculously big. Overall the food was good and not overpriced. The staff was friendly and the view was superb. We even saw 3 dolphins swimming while... More

We went to here because my mother-in-law raved about their buffalo shrimp from a previous visit, but when we went, they no longer carried the buffalo shrimp. We had some tasty rum-based drinks. The dockside seating has excellent ambiance and I love hearing the waves and watching the birds as the sun set. I had the fish and chips. The... More

They are remodeling so this place is " a work in progress". "slim pickens" when it comes to ordering but this will "not last forever." Forever ends in January. The waitress is "up front and honest" from the beginning about the remodeling. I have been to this place one time before, about a year ago and tried their alligator bites.... More

Clam chowder was terrible, got order wrong for several family members. Food took too long and 4 orders were cold. Not coming back.

This is a great place for happy hour. Good apps and a large selection of draft beers. We were there for sunset and you can get a very good view from their deck. Lots of pelicans to watch. Tom and Stacy were very welcoming. I highly recommend this spot.

Place was very empty and servers where just standing around talking took forever for them to take our order. the sauté grill was down so could not order some of the food, of course what i wanted was food prepared on that grill so I couldn't order that. Went with the fish tacos which were cold and tasteless. Order of... More
