Description: This rambling eclectic island style restaurant building complete with thatched roofs, mahogany bars, private beach, outside deck and band stand and some funky decor--is part of the historic Oleander Hotel that occupied this gorgeous waterfront property since 1925. Multiple dining areas and the ability to handle large parties offer something for everyone. Daily entertainment, island drinks, cold beer, toes in the sand, fresh fish and Floribbean cusine from our scratch kitchen prepared by one of the area's most popular restaurants and served by friendly staff--Squid Lips, where the locals eat and drink. Come by boat or car.

Good place to sit outside with a good river view. Usually go at happy hour outside, entertainment (not always great music -- they need more island themed bands for the setting). Covered bar deck or tables in the sand.

My husband and I stopped here for "happy hour" specials! We were amazingly surprised! Great menu selection! Great music and water view! A very popular place to enjoy happy hour, music and great seafood! We had calamari, coconut shrimp and wings! All very good! A casual and food place, great for families also.

We had a great service. Very prompt. Huge menu, asked for recommendation from the waiter, good idea, he was right. Three out of the four of us had seafood, this is not an expensive fancy restaurant, this is a casual fun family or friends seafood restaurant. It does seem a bit worn, but I think that is part of the "dock side" charm. Will go back.

The grouper fish sandwich and conch soup are excellent. The honey lime sauce is tasty and the coleslaw is a tasty side. Great service.

Great place to meet after an afternoon of paddleboarding. The outdoor bar area has a great view of the intercostal. Music is live. The inside areas are a bit dark and dated. We've met friends here several times and have enjoyed each visit.
