We especially like the patio seats that overlook the ocean. We watched some sail boat and just over the balcony edge children playing in the sand.

Great place to go after a day at the beach. We had everything from apps to desserts and drinks. The conch fritters were fab. and served with a really great sauce. We all loved our dinners and the key lime cheesecake was the best.

We came here with a party of 10 on 4th of July. The restaurant is right on the water and has a great atmosphere. The food was above average- but nothing stood out. Service was OK. The thing that made our 4th of July visit spectacular was the prime firework viewing spot. We had a great time!

I was looking for a different place to try seafood and was talked into Squid Lips by my son-in-law. It had be a seafood place prior, so thought what the heck. The food was good and the restaurant amibence was good. Bar was slammed, but handled the adult beverages and child beverages with a smile. Had called ahead and told it wouldn't be a long wait. I had expressed the need to eat inside, as I don't like to sweat while eating (I know it is Florida but we get to make choices). Wait was too long and finally got their attention due to my grandkids being hungry. Quickly seated after that and the orders for the kids put in quick. Food for them came out quick and good. Overall, could have had a better experience for the first time, but will give it another try!
