“Very average food and service”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

The restaurant is located right as you enter Marathon going south. It sort of has that tourist trap feel to it but we were hungry and it was getting late. The parking lot was full and difficult to find a space but the restaurant had a few empty tables so we were seated immediately. Service was relatively quick, friendly. Menu was very average, not much imagination here, sort of a blend of seafood and south of the border food. The food was very average but served promptly.

“Don't get the quesadilla with shrimp and scallop”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Quesadilla with shrimp and scallop very soggy and tasteless. Chopped up shrimp and tiny scallops . Covered with cheese.
Taco bell all the way.
Pineapple salsa not fresh. The fish tacos were a mess with one piece of fish and tons of cabbage stuffed on top. Not something you could pick up and eat. Dry and in need of a sauce that works with mahi mahi.
On the other hand the spinach oysters nice. The wine list and. Draft beer great selection and view great.

“Great Bar, Great Hang Out, Average Food”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

If you are looking for cheap drinks in an open air restaurant and don't order anything too ambitious you will have a great time. The drinks were good and very resonably priced. The service was friendly and effecient, the burgers and quesidillas were fine, the fish was fresh but uninspired. Dinner was just OK but we had a great time enjoying the ocean breezes and the views.
