Great view and sunset. Regular menu with moderate prices. Extremely long wait even if you call and get wait listed. Waited 2 and 1/2 hours for a seat. Not worth the wait unless you have nothing to do.

What a fantastic sunset! This made the meal memorable, even if the food didn't. To be fair, the starters were really tasty, but the main course let them down. I would recommend this restaurant for sundowners and snacks, that would be a very enjoyable evening.

A beautiful view and great food equate to an enjoyable experience. It is very popular so expect at least an hour or more wait.

This was a great place to have a few drinks while watching the dolphins in the sunset! We were a large group of 11. We made reservations by calling in at 630 and we were seated by 8 - half hour before sunset. No problems at all! Service was great! The food was good but not the best I've had in the area. Skip the oysters and go for the scallops - best recommendation our waitress made. Lots of parking in the area as well.
