Went last minute, 30 minute wait but expected during lunch hour. The hostess was great and accommodated as requested. During our wait, went inside for a drink, bar and lounge very nice, outdoor seating was great by the water.

Like gliding while sipping your drink on a beautiful summer day? Try this restaurant for a break from boating or just to enjoy their Fort Lauderdale gliders. There are several gliders, fitting about 6 people. Eat, drink, and be merry!
