Dined at HB's tonight. Went to enjoy a Naples sunset which did not disappoint. However, my wife ordered poached grouper with orzo which was drowned in broth and I ordered the 12oz rib-eye which was dry and tasteless. What made it worse was the price-$32 for the grouper and $28 for the rib-eye. With a soup and salad, the tab for two came to $83. Our advice, go for drinks and sunset, not dinner. Server, Bridgid was engaging and very nice.

We had a wonderful "Ladies Luncheon" at HB's on the Gulf. The view was relaxing! The food was wonderful! Most tried soups, salads and sandwiches. All were very good! Everyone was pleased. I tried the Jamaican Pineapple Boat which had Curried chicken salad with pineapple, grapes, cashews and toasted coconut and was served with cream cheese and banana nut finger sandwich. The curried chicken salad was not overbearing with curry - and freshly made. Fruits were tasty and fresh from market too. Nice blend of everything. Their ice tea was freshly brewed. The servers were very accommodating to our group and provided separate checks (9 ppl). HB's is truly a perfect lunch spot on the beach in Naples! We will go back again and again.....

We had a dinner outside for 18 people on Sunday 5/26/13 for a small informal wedding get together.They don't usually accomodate parties of that size, unless you are having a reception, but they did a great job! I think every single person that attended our dinner made comments of how fantastic their dinners were,the presentation, and the wide selection of which to choose from. The only downfall, which can't be helped, were the flies.

We stayed at the NBGR Sunday to Thursday this passed week and we ate here our first night. It was a bit on the later side since we'd unpacked etc. so we had a good meal but about half way through, the out door lights went out. I thought there had been a brief power outage/blown fuse...then 5 or so minutes later, lights are still off. I asked the waitress and she said at 9pm all outdoor lights are turned off for the sea turtle nesting period (May-Sept) since the lights confuse them. I totally respect that, but a little heads up like "Hey, you'll be eating in the dark soon better hurry up" would have help. I used the flameless candle on the table to see my food in order to eat, but other than that it was a good experience. A bit pricey depending on what you get, but fair amount of options.
