“You pay for the ambience”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

You pay for the ambience; but while the prices are higher than many nearby places, it is great sitting right on (the inland) water. This time, yes we come back for the ambience, while enjoying the sun and drinks a dolphin graced us with it's presence for about a half dozen visits to the surface right off one of The Pub's three waterfront docks. BONUS. We were there around 5:30 Friday and thought it would be busier, making us wonder why the service, especailly to get our drinks was (in both of our opinions) too slow.

Two drinks with tip $20.00.

“Good food with a great view”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Love the food, love the view, HATE the smoking! there needs to be somewhere non-smokers can go to enjoy this place and all it has to offer. This is my only complaint about this place.

It's the 21st century we all know about secondhand smoke so why should we have to put up with it.

“Good food and atmosphere on the water”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We eat here every time we are on the Gulf. We had 2-6oz lobster tails with garlic mashed potatoes, salad, and clam chowder. Was all excellent. The steaks are always good and done just how you like them cooked. The BBQ ribs are really tasy too. The keylime pie and choc cake was a nice topper to the dinner.

“Gorgeous view for Sunday lunch !!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Stopped by for lunch today, seated right away, outside right by the marina. Great breeze, wonderful views. Our server KK (she asked to be called that because first and last names were a challenge) was wonderful. Gave us tips on what to order, it is a very large menu, and we chose scallops and were not disappointed. It was our first visit and KK gave us info about the restaurant, the area, everything you could want while serving and excellent meal with exceptional service. We will definitely return !!

“The best Alaskan king crab, Why in florida, it just doesn't make sense.”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Rhonda the hostess was amazing, Jeff our server did a great job. Grouper nuggets were a great appetizer, Alaskan king crab was the best I have found, Oyster Rockefeller unbeatable. atmosphere was fun and exciting busy but under control. We sat out doors overlooking the water.
