Blackened scallops wrapped in bacon was wonderful. Ran out of special, but Mahi Mahi was good. Homemade key lime pie was excellent.

Went here for my birthday and it was a very good choice.Heather was our waitress and she did everything possible to make my birthday dinner the best ever and she was just a great waitress..We had steaks and they were done perfectly and since it was still happy hour the drinks were a bargain too..I don't think I could have made a better choice for my birthday...Will definately go back

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!!
