“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We stopped here for lunch while taking the Water Taxi. The atmosphere is awesome (you really feel like you're on vacation) and they were playing island/reggae music. The waiter was super attentive. We ordered an appetizer (spinach dip with pita chips) which was the best I've had! Our food came out very quick and was delicious. The price was right and we even got 10% off our bill because we rode the Water Taxi in.

PS we had to wait a while for the taxi to come back to get us. They had a Wii and let my kids play games to keep them occupied.

Great experience! Will definitely come here again!

“ICK!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Well...I was waiting on a taxi and ordered a Rum Riunner...it was so strong that it was like drinking gasoline. No flavor! Left it behind...maybe I should have asked for more mixer!

“A great water taxi stop”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife and I stopped here for a drink after getting off at one of the water taxi stops. The service was excellent. We both had a horny parrot which was very good. We sat outside on their balcony overlooking the intra-coastal. We did not eat here so cannot comment on the food.

“Laid back casual place to get a cold drink...”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Visited as one of the stops from the Water Taxi, people very friendly and even spoke with one of the managers from St. Louis (were from Kansas City), was nice visiting. We each had a strawberry daquri, just right for the warm humid weather. Restrooms were clean and the area very nice for watching the boats on the intercoastal water way. Caught the Water Taxi again and caught another local hang out. We would visit again, great drinks (we even got a bonus), fair prices and friendly people!
