Drove 2.5hrs to try this seafood restaurant in clearwater. Took my wife there for her birthday. The place and the food was OK. I expected more for what I have read on the reviews people have written.

Try anything and everything!! I had the special - snapper with a spicy sauce - couldn't have been any better in a 4-star restaurant! Have eaten here on every trip to Sand Key and always try something new - of course the fired shrimp is still my favorite appetizer - starts the meal off so well! Great staff as well!!

This place is fantastic! They make the best bread pudding, but only on Tuesdays....we had our waiter bring a piece of this to our hotel on Tuesday....he went above and beyond for us! Great food and staff...we will always to here for a meal when we go to Clearwater again!

My husband and I ate here on a recent trip and thought it was great. The fish was cooked perfectly and the side dishes were delicious. My only complaint is that I wasn't a huge fan of their wine selection -- next time I will stick to their drink specials!
