This is old Florida. Had not been here for over 25 years. Must say that the menu has changed. They used to have Grouper Ribs! These were fantastic and only available when they had the large Grouper. Gone are those days. Long waits for tables....Went to bar for beer and that was just fine. Got a table by the rail and loved the pelicans and other water birds and boats and goings on in the water. Actually saw a dolphin. Lunch was a mixed bag. We had Mahi Mahi sandwich which was really good and fresh. Also tried the crab cake sandwich. This was a disappointment. Lots and lots of filler. Hard to get a good crabcake anywhere unless it's Maryland, anyway. Should have gotten something else. Fries were good and crispy. If you are going to Ponce Point Inlet make the stop to Hidden Treasures!More

We visited in February after .climbing the Ponce Lighthouse. We had blackened shrimp and grilled shrimp. Even though they were very busy service was good. It took a little bit to get a server but once she came, everything just went smoothly. The shrimp was...very fresh and tasty. We enjoyed our dinner and when we come back will certainly stop again!More

My husband and I have been going here for over thirty years. In the last nine years we have been taking our dog and could sit anywhere. Now they only have 4 low tables in a corner. We waited 20 minutes, nothing opened up, so...we left. Went to another local restaurant and no problem.More

An authentic beach style bar with pelicans roosting nearby. Huge food portions very good reasonably priced. We had grilled chicken sandwich, fish sandwich, and coconut shrimp. Everything was excellent. Great service and fun place.

Stopped here after a great visit at the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. Sat on the deck overlooking the water. View was great. Service was fair. When a nearby patron politely requested an umbrella at her table, the server just replied that they weren't doing umbrellas right...now. Husband had shrimp basket and I had the cod sandwich. Sandwich was huge, but greasy. Both of us ended up with a stomach ache later that day. Seems like we might have just been there on an off day, but wanted to honestly share experience so you can judge. Think it is likely a super place in the warmer months.More

I was disappointed with this restaurant. Really surprised it was called a rum bar because I got a pina colado and it had absolutely no flavor, just $10 icee! I’m pretty sure a lady by me had the same problem because she asked for a...shot of rum for her “icee”. They were way over priced with a menu that had the ol stand by’s. Everything I asked for was answered with “have to charge you extra for that” and the service was cordial at best from the waitress carrying on about having to wear a mask 😷More
