“a Hidden Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We drove past the sign for this place a few times in our travels, not thinking it could be too much. But, a native of the area sent us there and it was really nice! When you go out to the back of the restaurant, you won't believe what a beautiful area they have for outdoor dining . The tables and chairs are very nice, and set up for all sizes of groups. Each place is a private place, you're not packed in next to others. We chose a 4 seat glider to eat at that was right up to the ocean. The service was very good, the food was excellent, and worth every cent! From appetizers to bread basket, to entree and dessert, everything we ate was excellent.
I'm glad we were told about it, otherwise, we may have continued to pass it by.

“Great View, Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Wonderful place to see the sunset. Tables are arranged outside on pavers so you don't have to walk thru the sand in shoes. Service was slow - waited 10 mins before being greeted by a server to take our drink order. However, server apologized and from that point on the service was fine. Delicious Flatbread to start, hogfish with lump crabmeat for me, onion encrusted mahi for my husband. Nice place to relax and enjoy the view. For me, the musician takes away from the ambience.

“The view is Breathtaking!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Must stop and see the sunset. It just takes your breath away. Even if you don't eat, set and have a drink by the water. The drinks are yummy. The food is average. The prices are high.
The service is always good. The men and women there treat you really good.

“Been here many times.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Consistenly good. Our food was very tasty. Outside patio huge but it was raining on and off so we sat inside which is small but was not crowded for lunch that day. Oh, and the outside area has really nice gliders with seating and table which is neat. Staff wonderful.
