My mom loved the oysters, steak was not flavorful and very dry. Husband liked the seafood trio but needed more flavor. It is a seafood place, so stick with the seafood.

Terrible. Nothing is fresh. Everything tasted reheated or refried. The table behind us appeared to be having a similarly bad experience.

My spouse and I went on a Tuesday night about 8:00, and the place was slammed. We were able to grab a couple of seats at the bar, and ordered a pepperoni “wood-fired” pizza. The thing might have been baked in a wood fired oven,...but it was a pre-made shell with very ordinary ingredients. The bartenders were quite busy, too - efficient service but not particularly friendly.More

Well run locally owned seafood restaurant. Very close to NPS Wright Brothers venue. Owner was attentive, and visited our table. Decor nothing special. Plenty of seafood choices to satisfy. Middle range cost.

We went there for our daughter’s wedding rehearsal dinner and had a room to ourselves which worked out great. Our waitress was fantastic and everyone loved the food! This made for a memorable evening and if you are getting married on the beach and need...a place for your rehearsal dinner, I can highly recommend this place.More

Poor host 2 times. Arrived at 5:30 Tuesday 6/22 to be told they couldn't seat us until 7:15. We are a party of 10. There was absolutely no one in the waiting area. We left and went to Bassnights and had no issue getting in....That night we made a ressie for Thursday 6/24 at 5:30. We arrived at 5:25 to the same host who said he had called us to let us know he could seat us at 4:15 or 7. We never got a phone call and our phones are working just fine. He then said to look at our email. Now which 1 is it?! Did you call or email? You can't keep your story straight dude. Either way we got nothing from him. The old lady beside him told us he's not a liar so is she calling customers liars? We have been going here for several years but we will never go back again. Rudest host I've ever met. Piss poor customer service. Ad on website is a lie.More

Second attempt to go to this restaurant in a week, even make a reservation, confirmed by email and was told they left me a voice mail that they couldn't seat us at our time (WHICH I NEVER GOT A VOICE MAIL) EVEN THOUGH I HAD...A CONFIRMED EMAIL RESERVATION!! Front staff were rude and condescending about the whole thing. Been going there for years and now probably won't be going back again.More

Upon arrival the hostess was a hot mess. Rude, flustered. Menu , basic, with five star prices. Food was average. Server made it bearable as he was a kind young man. Also, a decent gluten free pizza. Wouldn’t head back

Cane here for an anniversary dinner. Thanks to reservations, we avoided all of the lines and were immediately seated. The staff was fantastic. We ordered sirloin steaks and they were fine perfectly and delicious. The only negative I could offer is that the vegetable side...was VERY small. We enjoyed this place very much and it is nicely designed and decorated.More

We ate at Mako's because the parking lot seemed to be busy most evenings. Honestly the best thing the four of us had was the Caesar salad, the bread, and my 10 year old's pizza. My husband ordered tuna cooked medium and it was well...done, my son ordered a seafood platter and said it was awful, and my crab cakes were okay, but none of it was spectacular at the prices.More

The servers did not wear masks even after requesting. The pandemic isn't over and you are not immune. I wouldn't recommend this place just for not getting the masks right.

Stopped here by chance - it was a chilly night so didn't want to dine outside, but wanted a place adhering to Covid restrictions. This place had separate booths with high backs and they were seating every other one. All the staff wore masks. Our...waiter was super nice and friendly. The food was outstanding. We ordered tuna as an appetizer and then a mixed seafood grill and fish tacos. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. We would definitely return.More
