Was out riding the bicycles with the wife and decided to give this place a try. Like old time Florida. Beer was on ice behind the bar and the grouper sandwiches were big and tasty. For those in the know from the Tampa area, this place is like Woody's, Dockside Dave's, or back when Jimmy Mac's was around except the view is a lot better. Will be stopping by again when we are out for a ride.

going on a Friday evening was a mistake as it was packed downstairs where the bar is and the upstairs was ok , close tables but average as was the food....view of Sunshine Skyway was nice but....kind of reminded me of a diner....get em in and get em out.....place was on the list to eat per recommendations but not necessary a return place....sitting on the pier was pleasant to watch all the pelicans

This had a lot of people around it. Fun to visit, but nice when you are away from the noise. Lots of folks fishing, nice resurant there, but did not eat.

Old Florida dining. Casual and simple. The fried grouper sandwich was delicious! My husband had a hotdog which was also good. The view is wonderful! Looking out over the water towards the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Was told that the fishing from the pier is good and there were certainly many there trying their luck. Lots of baitfish in the water so bring a net. While we enjoyed our meal here and would go back, I would not use a credit card, I would pay cash.
