Server got the order wrong twice. I ordered Tilapia and the first time he brought me Salmon. While he took that back to the kitchen, my wife received her fried oysters. The were cut into small pieces and very chewy. The manager came by the table and ask how our meal was. I told her I was still waiting on... More

This resturant is great. We sat outside on the rooftop deck. The view is amazing and the atmosphere is very beachy. The raw oysters were really fresh and the drinks were cold. Service is very good.

The location is excellent. The food is okay, but overpriced! This place is always busy and often there is a wait - but it's just because of the location.

We finished up our work as far as we could go today and then ran to Academy and grabbed a fishing license and a pole and went to Bolivar Peninsula for some fishing. After catching nothing it was great to sit out beside the gulf and enjoy a pleasant meal of snow crab topped off with a Carmel sundae.

Had a wonderful lunch upstairs overlooking the pier and the ocean. The service was great - very friendly. The food was amazing. My fish tacos were the best I've ever had (and I try them everywhere) and my husband loved the blackened catfish. You can't go wrong here!

We stopped for a late lunch here. The atmosphere was fun. We split a meal and had a drink while watching the gulf across the street. Nice place.

It was really busy this time we visited so we didn't get a nice view table up top. We were kind of stuck in a corner, however the service and food was really good. We had kids with us and the waiter was really patient and helpful. It is hard to beat the location and (usually) good views at this... More
