Staying on the Island and decided to meet family at this waterside restaurant for dinner and drinks. You order food and beer or wine at one of the bars. The beer is cheap, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Ordered the blackened fish sandwich and it was delicious. Food was delivered fast. They have live music 7 days a week.

OK it’s a little rough. But the food is good and the view is excellent. You are literally over the water on the pier. You can tie up the boat and eat. Friendly service. No frills. Fishermen hang out here and only locals. So it’s comfortable. Fun late afternoon and evening. Music and beer. Always a good mix.

Bonita Bill's is a fun place to hang out. The food is real good. They welcome you and act like you are a long lost friend. Will be back

If you are looking for casual, old time Florida this is your place. Don't expect linen on the table as this is your waterside honky tonk with good food. Parking is limited but has reserved parking right out front. If you like long necks with a view and eats...this is your place!

They only serve wine or beer, and the choice of wine is limited to red, white, and dessert wine. The one brand of wine they serve is what I call headache wine. It is the cheapest of the cheap, and truly horrible. So beer is the only safe thing to get here. No table service, you have to go up and place your order at the bar with the most rude, unpleasant and surly bartender I've ever come across. She was truly awful. Just no excuse to be rude to courteous customers. The place was not very clean. I saw baskets of condiments sitting on the outside tables in the hot sun that included bottles of mayonnaise, so that was alarming. The food was okay, but not good enough to endure the horrible service. There are other waterfront choices right next door that are more deserving of your business!
