“Best 2 meals of the holiday”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

The scallops were the best tasting we have ever had.
The atmosphere and music at this restaurant (open aired) was a pleasure...everybody seemed to be having a good time.
The staff were very attentive and friendly.

“Worth Finding This Great Spot!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

This is a perfect lunch spot on the way out of Ft Myers Beach. It is in the Lover's Key Resort area, off the main road a bit.
The soups are always delicious and hot. The clam chowder and chicken poblano are two of our favorites. My usual is the fried grouper sandwich, which is consistently cooked perfectly. This time, I tried the Surfboard, which was a fried swai fish hoagie. If not familiar with swai, it is a very light, flaky white fish, similar to tilapia, some say catfish. It was yummy, served with crunchy fries.
The view of the bay is beautiful, almost always see dolphin passing by. Many people come by boat, as well. It is just a perfect retreat, sort of tucked away. It is definitely worth finding.

“Fun setting, great view, good food and service”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We ate here with friends and sat on the deck overlooking the water....feels like you're at the keys with the Floridian style outdoor deck and casualness. Food very good, a bit on the high side in price. Great service, fabulous views. A bit of a distraction was the [sometimes very loud] wave runners just off the beach.

“Hard to find.”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

We had a hard time finding flippers. When we got there we found it was outside. Would have been great if it wasn't dark, cold and a bit windy and misty. There were Warmers but I could not get warm. Food was okay.
