What a great spot for lunch. It was cool but the deck was buttoned-up and the heaters we're on. Service and food were great as were the bloody matte topped with pickled asparagus and dolly beans. Conch fritters were meaty and the fish was fresh and done just right.

We loved this place. Awesome food and good prices. The location was great. The environment is very tropical. We will come again.

This wasn't my first choice of restaurant for our evening, but I was overruled by others in our group, so perhaps my review is more negative than it should be. The weather gods were not cooperating with us either - a gray, overcast evening meant that the restaurant wasn't as open-air as it appears to normally be - they had large clear plastic-y sheets between the outside and the inside to make transparent-y walls of a sort ... and the sky conditions meant a poor sunset. There was seating for our large group which was great, though we were more towards the inside of the restaurant. We didn't have advance reservations, though, so that wasn't unexpected, and it was nice to find enough room for us all without a long wait (around 6:30 pm on a Wed. night). Food was only OK ... nothing special. Portions were plentiful, but none of us were terribly overwhelmingly impressed with anything. Not bad, but not "OMG fantastic" either. Server was nice, but messed up our bills, so those had to be adjusted. Family enjoyed walking along the dock after dinner. Parking is plentiful and restaurant is easy to find, but I personally wouldn't make a special trip back again. Perhaps on a nicer day when the restaurant is more open I'd feel differently.

I took a group of 15 here for lunch after an outing to Dolphin Research facility about 4 miles away. Although they typically do not do reservations, they worked with us and had a couple of big tables waiting. The open air, on the water setting is GREAT. Service was fast and the food was good as well as reasonably priced. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

Loved the rustic tiki bar style of this open air waterfront restaurant! I enjoyed the Ale Steamed Shrimp, seemed to be cooked with Old Bay, shrimp were large and meat dense. Husband had the fish tacos which he said were very filling with no trace of "fishy" flavor. We are already planning to return.
