We have been to this location several times and this was the first time I walked out disappointed. When I ordered the lamb sliders the waitress said they were out of them...at 3:30 in the afternoon. Two friends ordered Pepsi which arrived obviously flat. Waitress didn't seem to care much and asked what they would like instead. One ordered raspberry iced tea. Food arrived; okay but nothing to rave about. When bill came we questioned why the iced tea was $2 on the menu and the bill said $4. Waitress' answer, "We don't have the one on the menu and can't make it so we have the bottled iced tea...there are a lot of typos on the menu."

We asked if the restaurant was under new management since this was definitely not the experience we had had in previous visits. Hopefully this was just an "off" day but I would now definitely hesitate to recommend to anyone.

We went at 6pm and it was still Happy Hour.
Very nicely priced apps
Dinner was pretty reasonable we had calamari, coconut shrimp, shorts ribs, grouper, salmon and the steak. Everything was very good.

What a refreshing find for lunch in Coconut Point! I had the pineapple boat (gluten free) which consisted of a scoop of tuna salad and chicken salad over greens inside a fresh cut pineapple. The chunks of pineapple--so delicious-- were then placed on the plate. it was the perfect amount of food for lunch. My husband ordered the blackened grouper sandwich with fries and a side salad. He loved the salad with the lemon vinaigrette dressing and also loved the sandwich. The bun was very light and the fish tasty. The fries left a little to be desired.
The gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. The waitress mentioned that some other items can be prepared gluten free if requested.
Our entrees were $13 each. Note: my plain ice tea was $2 but the raspberry ice tea was $4. It is Republic Raspberry Ice Tea and came in the bottle.
The dinner menu had many gluten free items but nothing really out of the ordinary.
We will eat here again if we are in the area.

We were about 50 friends getting together for happy hour. The owners Joe and Donna were very accommodating. Waiters and waitresses were serving with a smile and efficiency. Very reasonable and satisfying.
