“Poor Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We were very upset about the service here. The waitress was rude and never smiled. She acted as if we were a bother to her. Other waitresses appeared to also be unfriendly.

“Lovely view, Food was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

We visited on the recommendation from some friends who were traveling with us. They are incredibly picky eaters, so we tend to visit places that they like so we don't run into challenges.

That being said, I felt that the food was a bit on the average side. I do like that they offered all seafood selections to be either broiled or fried (with a bit more of a wait if you wanted broiled). My shrimp were adequate, as were the french fries they were served with. Nothing terribly salty, but also nothing terribly flavorful either. Perhaps I should have chosen something else...

The view was lovely. We had a window seat that overlooked the boat launch area, so people watching was a good way to pass the time between ordering and arrival of food.

“Almost like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

The conch fritters are almost as good as in Key West. The dining room overlooks a small marina and river which always seemed to be a hub of activity.

“Nice view of the bay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

When the wife I are want seafood, we normally end up here. The restaurant is very well lite and the seafood is always good. My wife loves to get the Stone Crab claws when they are in season. I love the fried oysters. They have indoor and outdoor seating with views of the bay. I would recommend reservations if you want a window seat at supper time.

“Soft Shell Grabs were great, rest not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The soft shell grabs were fantastic, out of this world. However also had fried shrimp and fish and onion rings, and these were only OK. Server was very good and friendly. Prices were high for portions and quality. Would go back again but only for the soft shell grabs.
