Dine with your toes in the sand on fresh Florida seafood and a variety of menu items made with just picked produce from our own farm and fresh from the gulf seafood as well as sustainable seafood from around the world.

We dined here once during our stay in Bradenton and were fortunate to have only a 30 minute wait to be seated. That can extend over an hour. After cocktails at the bar, the interesting menu did not prove in reality to be as enjoyable as we expected. The tuna steak was overcooked while the crab cake, shrimp and fish dish was very mediocre. We passed on desserts.
The sea view is wonderful. Unfortunately, we did not find the food quality to match.

Although we only visited once while the restaurant was being remodeled we were very impressed with the "new" place. Good service and good food. Great bathrooms!

Was incredibly impressed with service considering a shortage of tables with inside closed for renovations. While waiting for table, we were served drinks quickly (& not charged). They said wait would be an hour and we were actually seated within 30. Our waitress was very prompt with drinks and meal. The 'average' rating however was because of food. My steak tasted spoiled...only way to describe..a very strange taste that my husband even picked up on...so bad we had to spit out. Our waitress was very apologetic and removed meal from ticket. I generally do not write bad restaurant experiences for one event, but I've eaten here before and it can be hit or miss......great meal one night, the next warm soup or item not cooked as requested. I hope with their new kitchen and digs that they work on food quality and consistency. Oh, valet guys are always prompt and pleasant!

As well as a lovely view of the ocean, this restaurant was not crowded on a week day. They are owned by The Sandbar and are not nearly as busy. Valet parking worked for us. We returned there a couple of times. Delicious food and friendly staff. They did not rush us!

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner here. The place and the food are both great. The service four our party of 45 was a little lacking since there was only about 3 people serving the whole party. They had the beer taps switched on some of their beers so we had to re-order a couple of times but the Prime Rib was good, the Fish looked nice also.
