We've been here a few times when down for vacation and it is wonderful! We made a 6 pm reservation (recommended) using Open Table and got it with ease. My husband ordered filet mignon and I got the Grouper. Both were delicious! We split the Wedge Salad; blue cheese dressing was perfect. We will be back next year!

Chose 3 "stars" because past dinners have been 5's, recent lunch a 0. We walked in at 1:15 on a Sunday, place not very busy, outside tables--those with prime water views---full, inside nearly empty. Server never made eye contact with either of us, when I asked for raw garlic to come with my Caesar salad he muttered something like "I'll... More

Great drinks, great food, and great views. Make sure you get there early enough to see the dolphins from the outside seating area.

we went there on our last vacation night for a special treat. The service was good, the restaurant overlooks the water, could see dolphins. The hostess that greeted us was a bit of a snot, we arrived 15 minutes before reservation time, and were directed to a bar area and told to return in 15 minutes "and then we can... More

My family and I ate here while on our vacation. Service and the meals we had were very good. The Dirty Martinis were made to perfection. You definitely want to make reservations because it fills up. We got there early and had a drink at the bar up in the crows nest atop of the restaurant, real nice 360 degree... More

We went for appetizers and drinks and to watch the sunset from the rooftop. The view was great and we met some fun and friendly people. The service was slow; the waiter asked if we wanted another beer and when we said yes he left and then came back a few minutes later and said we'd have to go to... More

There were 6 of us and we made a reservation which I recommend. A party of 2 came up and had no reservation and was told it would be a 2-1/2 hour wait! This was a Saturday night. We ate outside on the porch and it was warm but tolerable.Beautiful sunset! Wait staff was very efficient and personable. The food... More

We made dinner reservations and arrived early to enjoy an outdoor cocktail. There was live music on the rooftop and the view was phenomenal. We moved downstairs for dinner which was decent. Next time I'd probably stay longer for drinks and just have a couple appetizers.

Thank guess2
