Nice views, but food was very lackluster. Salad bar and appetizer about the only thing they have going.

Saw this written up on TA so we drove out to the location when staying in Cocoa Beach. It was a good ways out from where we were staying, but believing that it would be worth the trip, we went inside for dinner. It was at sunset, and yes, the deck has a lovely view. But the service and the food were a big disappointment...don't go out of your way to eat here if you have other choices...(May 2010)

We probably caught them on a bad day but the service was worse than poor; there was some mix up on whose table we were and we sat for I while with no service so I asked the hostess if we could get someone to wait on us; still no service and we were getting ready to leave when a waiter came up and said, has anyone waited on you, we said no so he took our drink order and said your server is really busy; he of, course wasn't. Our drinks came and we finished them and then the waitress came over, clearly put off about how much work she had to do and annoyed with life in general. We did get our food, which wasn't bad, but kept having to ask for unimportant things like silverware and our water glasses to be refilled. We haven't been back.

We visited the restaurant during Spring Break this year. We waited 35 minutes to be seated and then the problems started. About 30 minutes into the meal, our server informed us that our order was behind due to a large party in the restaurant. We received our food after being seated for 50 minutes. Some of it had obviously been sitting under a heat lamp. Overall, the food was average. Our server offered free dessert to make up for the long wait, but the restaurant was out of 3 of the selections on the menu. Instead, we received free beverages ($6.00 value) off of a $100 bill. Atmosphere is good as the restaurant is right on the waterway, but the service is extremely poor.

We wanted to sit outside but it was too windy. The interior is just OK, but we weren't eating the ambiance. We ate seafood, and it was very good, extremely good for the price. The New England clam chowder was the best I've had. Simply outstanding.

Rock shrimp, a local favorite, was very good.

Service was fast, attentive and friendly.
