really liked the atmosphere. It was a fun place that we stopped in for an after dinner drink to watch the sun set. Right on the water- beautiful sunset view.. They have great drinks and servers are very friendly

Food was good and service was good but wasn't the cleanest place around. Seafood was tasty and the selection was similar to what is available at other places. Good local choices done well. As we were staying at the Hampton Inn, the short walk down the street was a big draw. We would come back. The view is tough to beat.

Great beach front restaurant, regular food like anywhere else, but the key lime pie....oh my heavens, key lime pie is amazing. I haven't had another one as good as this one yet!! Very relaxed atmosphere, friendly waitresses, ocean breeze, ::sigh:: I wish I was there now!

It was a tasteless fish sandwich and fries. Also, tasteless draft beer. Go to chic-fil-a. Don't expect exceptional seafood from this place. Families and children and so little else.
