“Disappointing Restaurant”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

We had heard good reviews of this restaurant Nice atmosphere and deck seating I ordered chicken french ...very bland and pappy. Another ordered fish which was OK. We were disappointed. The creme brulee was the best.

“Beautiful Sunset, Fabulous Food, Great Service”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

My friend and I had heard about the sunsets enjoyed at this restaurant so we decided to check it out. We stopped in around 5:30 on a chilly Sunday evening. We we were seated on the deck which was kept cozy by heaters. We dined on a special of sea bass served over herbed risotto with steamed snow peas. The waitress was happy to split our meal since we both wanted the clam chowder as an appetizer...best ever! Our meal was delicious and sure enough, a little after 6pm we witnessed one of the most beautiful, scenic sunsets ever.
I strongly recommend this dining experience to everyone and will surely return if I get the opportunity to return to New Smyrna Beach. Thank you!

“Great location on the water, good food too.”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

Really nice place, with great food, right on the waterway in New Smyrna Beach. Other than my mom's undercooked steak, we were all very happy with our meals - a great place for fish. The bruleed cheesecake was also fantastic. It is a bit expensive though, more of a special occasion place. They do offer brunch on Sundays. Service was very good.

“great spot to be outside”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

expensive but great atmosphere and service. Food is usually above average. Go for a sunset and watch the dolphins. Needs a better beer selection

“Nice place to visit, eat, and enjoy the sunset”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Business associates were in town and we needed a nice place to dine. We had crab cakes, escargot, mahi, chopped steak with mashed potatoes. Three of us ordered from the early bird menu which included salad or soup and a cocktail. All of the food was prepared well but not "extra special." We will definitely return to enjoy the good service and fantastic view of the river and sunset.
