Description: We are 1 block off U.S.1 ocean side, (left going south) at the end of North Point Dr. Or you can take Garden Cove Dr. We are a very cute/nice restaurant that offers a large menu to suit any palate. We serve only quality food that is a cut above a lot of other places you could choose. Google us, I think you will enjoy stopping in and dining with us.

Watch for signs to find it. Found that if you sit by the waters edge you will get a fish smell as this restaurant is surrounded by a marina. So we went into the a/c room and were still able to get a view of the inlet. You go to eat in the keys with a view of the water. Had 2 lunches here and first time had a great waiter who was attentive and helpful with lots of information about the keys. Second visit the waitress we had wasn't attentive and seemed put off when my daughter wanted to order off the kids menu which wasn't an issue first time around (she's a fussy eater). Had the house salad as a meal and plenty of croutons, boiled egg, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. 2nd visit had the Hawaiian Burger and it was really good but a big burger and didn't quite finish it.

Set back on a side road on the Atlantic side, I've passed this spot many times and never realized it was there. We sat out back on the cut with a view of the Atlantic and boats, very relaxing! Food was great! Lobster bite salad had a ton of fried lobster and the cracked conch was very tender. Try this place!

If you want to know where the locals eat, look no further. This little restaurant boast big flavors on its menu. I am a sucker for the barge burger and there awesome conch fritters. some of the best in the keys. My family usually orders the triple appetizer. It comes with phenomenal peel and eat, amazing fish dip and hit or miss ceviche. Sometimes there's more veggies than snapper, but it is good non the less. have to say the only thing slightly disappointing is the lobster bisque but my daughter orders it every time, but the service is outstanding. There is 3 sections to sit in, inside ac, outside no ac and by the water. it is a very relaxing atmosphere and keys casual is accepted. We usually bring friends there for lunch and family for dinner. It can get pricey but their specials are great. a 10 dollar appetizer or a 10 dollar burger. a 9 dollar fish sandwich or a 35 dollar steak. There is something for everyone.

We enjoyed our first visit so much, we went back the next day. Each time, the service, food drinks and atmosphere were wonderful! Our first visit had live music - steel drums, really enjoyable and very tropical atmosphere. It was loud enough to enjoy and still be able to have a conversation. Some of our favorite menu items were: baked Brie, oysters, chicken salad sandwich, tuna, key lime pie, and coconut cake.

Great, reasonably priced food, overlooking marina. Very casual, good service, very relaxed. Would never have seen the sign but found on Trip Advisor with high marks.
