We had a group of ten adults and three toddlers so it was tough to find a restaurant that would take reservations for our group. While we were disappointed that we couldn't find a place on the water, we had no choice really. That being...More

We went out for a family dinner; we had 7 people! We knew it would not be cheap, but for what we had and the cost not worth it! The shrimp and grits had been recommended by other reviewers and I thought it was just...More

Based on the reviews I had read I was really looking forward to eating here. Upon arrival we were seated immediately as a party of four, which was a pleasant surprise. We all ordered (two adults and two kids under 10) and prepared for this...More

My husband, kids (10 & 8), and I stopped in yesterday for lunch. When we arrived it took a few minutes to be acknowledged and seated by the staff, so we were a little worried. A large party was just ordering when we were seated,...More

Had dinner with the family, group of 6. They got us right in. The server, Anton, was excellent. Most of us had some sort of seafood. I had the seafood jumbilia, which was excellent and very filling. We would go back again.

We were a party of 8 and had reservations. The staff was very nice and helpful. Everyone had something different. My husband and I shared the paella which was good but different from what we are accustomed to - more like a gumbo. The others...More
