“Good food, automatic 18% tip for bad service”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Decided to give this place a try while on vacation. Atmosphere OK- old Florida. We ordered grouper sandwich and fish and chips, both good. Slaw was interesting. A little overpriced but a tourist location so not surprising. Our server was decent until the meal came and then nothing. No pepper, no drink refills, nowhere to to be found. The surprise was the automatic 18% gratuity added to our bill, along with an opportunity to add more if we wanted. I am a good tipper for good service but this person would not have gotten more than the 10% I leave for poor service. Being forced to reward poor service left a bad taste in our mouths.

“Average but not remarkable”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant located in the.Palm Beach Shores Resort was acceptable but not spectacular or remarkable. The menu offers reasonable selection but the fare is not haute cuisine not the experience in the realm of "fine dining". We thought it overpriced fie what it was but then it is a tourist resort location.
Service was friendly and reasonably prompt, the food hot and delivered promptly.
While no strong negatives we expect more and would not likely go back unless as a convenience option.

Good food at the right price. My wife liked the patio and the kids found plenty of choices on menu. The staff was nice and the service was great.
