If location alone were the determine factor, then a 5 would be in order here.....the restaurant is adjacent to the marina and offered magnificent views of amazing yachts and boats. There is both indoor and outdoor dining (we opted for the latter, which was fabulous). To see the sun set was breathtaking.

Server was efficient...we got the impression he was special needs or something as there was "something"about his mannerisms, etc. Regardless, he was friendly enough and while somewhat slow, he was efficient in terms of accuracy.

My lobster and shrimp wrap was Okay.....too much tomato and not enough flavor though.

My colleagues both had fried shrimp and they advised the shrimp was Okay.......

Cocktails were good......

I would patronize this place again...if no other reason, the bar.

Category 3 and Painkiller = great time. If they have grouper it should be on your plate. Lot's of space for big groups but cozy enough for a few.

Well, I went here with a group of friends the night before this past Miami/UF game. Everyone ranted and raved about the place, and it was my first time. Place was WAYYY too crowded, each bar has 3 bartenders for about 400 patrons, and once the doors to the inside are open, the A/C is cut off. I really wanted to like this place, but, this definitely did not impress me. Probably won't be back. Only reason I didn't give it 1 star was because of the location.
