The fried oysters, shrimp and grouper fingers are the best (although maybe not the healthiest). Always love the snapper too. And then there's the gold brick for dessert. Love The Temp! (hint, sit in the front room)

We recently went here for dinner with our 2 teenagers. I had the blackened grouper, which was one of the smallest pieces of fish encountered on this vacation. Served with 4 spears of asparagus and 1/2 of a baked sweet potato that had a rotten spot on 1 end. For $36! We ordered a bottle of wine for over $70 and after the initial pour, the waitress never touched the bottle again. Would not be in a hurry to return.

We loved this place. Probably one of our favorites. The best snapper I think I've ever eaten. Great steaks! Love the ambiance of this place. Enjoyed the conversation of some locals in the bar.

We went here as two couples for a birthday dinner. It was a quiet night as the weather in Florida was20 degrees colder than usual. We informed the hostess that it was our friend's birthday and told the waitress as well. I don't think the waitress even said happy birthday. We were visiting from New York and our friends were local to the Boca Grande area. The fish I ordered was well prepared, but the side dish was nothing spectacular and the vegetables were soggy and not worthy of the price we paid for the dish. For 4 people, 3 drinks, 2 coffees, no dessert and no appetizers the bill was $260 before tip. Completely outrageous for the experience. The waitress never came back to warm up the coffees and shockingly NOTHING was done for our friends birthday. After we left he said "wow not even a candle in a cupcake?" We were all surprised by the service as the prices would have dictated fine dining with good service. That was not the case. Overall the food was OK, the ambiance was lacking....the waitress actually brings the food over on a plastic cart like they use in offices to deliver the mail!!! Abysmal. At least if you won't use trays, use a cart that looks like it was made for food.
Two nights later we went to the main restaurant at Gasparilla Inn, paid similar prices and had impeccable service and exquisite food. Save your money and go to the Gasparilla Inn.

Went out fishing and caught some beautiful Trout. The guide filleted them and we took them right over to the restaurant. gave them the fish when we checked in. Ordered a nice whit wine from the wine list and within 30min from the dock we had an incredible meal. Outstanding!
