We were referred to this restaurant by our kayaking tour guide. We were not disappointed. Service was top notch. Regular food was very good and the sushi was outstanding. I will go here again next trip to the keys.

“ok food, serious management overhaul needed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

Enjoyed the location and the food was not the worst i've eaten. Ordered the crab spinach dip and found maybe one taste of crab meat, I say taste because I did not see any. Our server was friendly however our sushi was TERRIBLE. The sushi rice is not properly prepared and bland. My server asked how our meal was and we informed him the sushi was sub par (volcano roll) to which he stated he would remove from our bill. Several minutes later the whole experience was ruined when the "manager" came over to question why we did not like our food. The manager proceeded to get in our faces stating that the volcano roll had cheese in it and that it was clearly stated on the menu that cheese was mixed in the sushi topping which what was probably what we were tasting. She refused to take the inedible food off our bill. Our server made an effort to correct the situation and went over the managers head to have the item removed and apologized for his sorry excuse for a a managers behavior. Overall, ok service, bland sushi, plain food, relatively nice atmosphere with poor management.

“It has character...”

...and good food, although the establishment is quaint, at best.

The menu is varied and loaded with choices.

A great experience! Excellent food and very impressed with their award winning sushi. I would recommend stopping in for a nice relaxing lunch...only view of water is a small channel though.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Service was superb! Food was delicious! We had a party of 14 & we were accommodated right away. It's nice when the servers have personality! Honey buns were great! Coconut shrimp were out of this world! We will definitely be back!
