“Lovely atmosphere - wonderful sunfish”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I'm glad I didn't order the calamari after reading another's review. However, we had lunch there on Saturday with family and it was very enjoyable. We arrived just before the lunch rusand scored a table next to the floor to ceiling glass so we had a great view of the water - boats coming and going made for interesting viewing. We ordered sunfish which was lightly breaded with macadamia nut breading and fried. Served with fried plantains. A lovely light mango sauce served with a smattering of fresh fruit; a few blueberries, etc. made for a great presentation. Quite delicious and not an overload of food. Just the right amount with a bit of crusty baked bread.

A wonderful afternoon enjoying the Florida sunshine in this bright and pleasant restaurant by the water. I couldn't think of a better way to spend an hour or so while visiting this area!

“Great view, good menu and dog friendly”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch and the crunchy grouper sandwich was very good. My husband had fish tacos that were also excellent although they should serve 3. Even the grouper was smaller than I had last year. But we love the atmosphere and when you travel with a dog appreciate having her with us.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

The only thing positive to say is about the view overlooking the water. We ordered the raw oysters which were absolutely the worse we have had anywhere. There was no flavor and they looked old. Salads and drinks (martini and cosmo) were fair. Service less than fair - didn't know where our waitress was half the time.

“Dreadful food”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Chewy calamari, tasteless conch fritters and mussels. Seafood paella ok. Great location but the food was a Hugh disappointment.

“Beautiful Waterfront Restaurant”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Had lunch in this lovely restaurant with several friends. Seating is available both inside and out. Inside was rather noisy during the busy time. Nice big windows so anywhere you sit inside, you can still enjoy the boats passing by. You can also come to the restaurant in your boat. Service was excellent. Two menus, one listing selections offered daily and one with specials of the day. Each lunch was attractively served and very good. We would certainly return there when in the area.
