We've been going to HB's for 10+ years and it is hit and miss at best. The best place for sunset dining - hands down. But the food quality is just not there. For many years I've begged my mom and sister to give it just one more try, well I don't think that will work again. Sad, gorgeous restaurant....

We were served room temperature white wine and were told it would cool in the ice bucket. The bread is great and piping hot but the butter is from the freezer meaning the bread is cold by the time you can spread the butter. They knocked off the price of the wine but the meal was alreadt spoilt.

The location doesn't get any better! You can watch the beautiful Naples sunset right from your table. Highly recommend the outdoor dining.

HB's has such a rare and enviable position on the beach that it could probably get away with serving rubbish (they don't) and it would still be full. The food is perfectly okay, nothing very memorable but the staff are friendly, the sunset stunning and a lovely evening can be had here.

Great table, but service was very slow and food was below par. My seafood trio consisted of one Bad Tasting Scallop, Two Dried out Shrimp and small piece of Mahi Mahi. Spinach Salad had rancid taste....I think it was the dressing. Had out of town guests....thank God atmosphere was good.
