We ate lunch there with some friends and some friends of theirs. The food was wonderful and the location divine. Very attentive service and plenty of choice on the menu. A great place to have lunch.

Business lunch. Great location but food quality marginal, portion sizes ridiculously small unless you're a child. Oyster PoBoy grossly undercooked and very greasy. Lunch for 2 for $55? Won't return and you should save your money. Naples has much better waterfront restaurants.

Service was a bit stressed but for a group of eight, can't complain.

Food and wine were excellent.

Highly recommend a drink next door at sunset then into HB's for dinner.

I guess you need to know which is more important: location or food. The location was lovely -- being able to see the sun go down at dinner was a treat. However, my shrimp and grits dish was horrible. I've eaten that dish all over and make it at home. Also, because we were outside, it cooled down as the sun set and we had a long wait until the heaters were turned on after we asked for them. A so-so meal at a top price!

HB's is located off Gulf Shore Blvd. in the Naples Beach Hotel. It is a lovely location, right on the beach. You may eat inside with wonderful views of the Gulf, which is a little more formal. Or you can eat outside under umbrellas enjoying the beach air and view of the surf.

I love HB's for lunch, although other meal times are available. They have a great menu with a variety of foods to please your palate. Recently, I chose the Jamaican Fruit plate with chicken salad. It's presentation was beautiful. A wonderfully fresh and ripe quarter of a pineapple, grapes, strawberries, with a good - sized helping of a spicy chicken salad, served with a date bread (I think) slathered with a sweetened cream cheese. Excellent. I will go back and get the same order again and again.

My friend had a BLT which she said was the most amazing BLT she ever had. A grilled bread with mounds of crispy bacon, fresh greens and lovely red ripe tomatoes. It was served with a bowl of fresh fruit and berries.

What more can you ask for? A beautiful location, outstanding views, good food and nice servers? It isn't cheap, but it is worth it.
