Absolutely beautiful location, then again, I'm very biased towards beach front restaurants. That nice wooden deck, patio furniture, looking out over the water- it would be near impossible for me to give a place that fits such a description less than 3 stars.
I'm with a friend of mine who has been there once before. She recommended I have the conch chowder and the ceviche. I kind of listened to her. I ordered the conch fritters, shrimp cocktail, and the ceviche. The conch fritters are just okay, probably sub-par compared to most of the conch fritters I've had. Maybe they used more flour than necessary, not sure. The presentation on the shrimp was unbelievable, literally. Like, how did anybody that works in culinary let these out of the kitchen. The ceviche was fine, I don't really like ceviche that much, however, that's just personal preference, the dish had good presentation and tasted just like ceviche should.
It is just becoming progressively more apparent and upsetting that none of these waterfront (ocean, marina, bay, inter-coastal, etc.) in Florida offer locally grown and locally fished products. I'm the customer that would be more than happy to have a meal consisting of Florida Rock or Key West Pink Shrimp followed by a fresh caught and served snapper/grouper/mahi maybe stuffed with some spiny lobster stuffing. For some odd reason, frozen crap shipped in freezer bags is way more cost effective, and we as the consumer have become so naive to what fresh food should taste like, that we don't care we're purchasing the same frozen crap offered in the frozen food section at Winn-Dixie at a slight mark-up. Even when these restaurants offer the locally caught fish, it goes right from the loading zone to the walk-in freezer. These fish get upgraded to the Special of the day only when they are about to turn, and not sooner, so buyer beware.
Great service at the bar by the way. That was probably the saving grace. If I go back, it will be to enjoy a cocktail on the beach, maybe shoot craps on their calamari.

We've stopped here both times we visited the area. It's good and a fair value. We eat outside to enjoy the view. The food is good and the staff is very friendly. It's a solid place to enjoy a meal and a view.

The food, service and entertainment great. You are 75 yards from the ocean and when you eat on the deck you feel like you are on vacation.
