You can eat dinner while enjoying the beautiful ocean. The food was good, nothing over the top. The prices were way over the top.

Took my grown children and grandson to eat there last night. The waitress was very nice, but took forever to take our order. I ordered the Hogfish dinner special.

Originally wanted fish but was surprised at the limited selection of seafood, plus the fish dishes were mostly "stacked". Not my thing. Had the 16 oz. NY Strip - charred med. rare.... More

Spent the day on Caspersen looking for the elusive sharks teeth After finding a mouth full we headed home. We decided to stop in and have a bit to eat and a drink. The staff was great the food was plenty full and the drinks hit the spot. We will be back

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The waiter was very personable and helpful. The three course dinner of appetizer main course and dessert for twenty five dollars was excellent. Drinks were reasonably priced and you could not beat the view of sunset over the Gulf. Would gladly return.

The food is very good...the staff is friendly...and the view is outstanding. We were there during the tropical storm and the views of the gulf were breathtaking. The nachos are fantastic.
