I ordered a hot dog. They threw a warm dog, a bun pulled from a bag, cheese not melted, yesterdays bacon chips and ran from the bar where I sat. Even with the service, which was disgusting and negligent at any standard and food that wouldn't have been served in a soup kitchen, I was willing to pay. After 45 minutes without attention I left this pathetic place without paying. Thought about it for a minute, ran back in telling them I wanted to pay my bill and still couldn't get some person to help me. While I was there, five groups came in wanted to be seated, could not get any help and fortunately for them, they left. This place isn't worth a first chance, much less a second. Never, ever go to this place, it is probably the worst service I have seen and the food is not far behind.

This terrible restaurant across from beautiful Deerfield Pier & Beach. Extremely long wait for terrible food. Service almost non- existent. Have been there 3 times, first time dinner was fair, second time brunch was bad, awful food & service, third time dinner was consistently poor food, service & extremely long wait.. Will not return. Take my advise & go only for cocktails & great music.

Great food experience. Share a salad they are gigantic. Good wine list. Our waiter was originally from our home town of Pittsburgh. James can steer through the menu well.

We were 7 of us who went there for lunch today. First of all while the hostess was seating us outside the waitress made a comment "oh god"...so right there we felt unwelcomed. We placed our order and an hour and a half later after asking where our order was especially our appetizer of fried calamari the waitress said she will check. It came out finally and was not thoroughly cooked. So we sent that back. The food was horrible, burger was too cooked when asked for Medium. Beef sandwich was dry. We were told two different stories on why the food came out so late, personally I think they forgot about our order. I would NEVER go back there again. It will soon be another one bites the dust once they go out of business like all the others on that corner.

Dear Annbats

It is with great concern that I am reading about your much less than positive experience with us. I did investigate what happened and we pinpointed the issue and fixed it immediately. There are no excuses for waiting that long for food but only apologies to present.
That day as we do every week end, we served over 400 guests with no issues and it makes us feel very bad that your party had to endure a long wait. Please do contact me at 954-596-5840 directly for it is now my mission to turn this around and provide you with the experience you rightfully expected and that our guests do always get.
We will have many new and exciting things rolling out this summer and since it appears you are from the area we would very much like to share them with all our local friends. We will commit to a speedy and delicious experience like none other provides around here.
I am looking forward to hearing from you soon, in the mean time we wish you a great spring season.

Best Regards
