“Awesome view FRESH fish”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

My husband surprised me by taking me here. This was our first time coming, and won't be the last. The stuffed cheeseburger I had (the Riverburger) was probably the best cheeseburger that I have ever tried. My husband had the fresh blackened grouper. It was very very fresh. The restaurant is attached to a marina with access to the gulf. If you do eat here, ask for the outside dining. We were looking for the dolphins, and manatees. Unfortunately, no sightings. The service is exceptional, and the prices were reasonable. The downside is that the restaurant is on a pier, which you have to park a ways away if you drive. They do have shuttles, but if you enjoy the marina, please walk. The walk is one of the great parts of the experience.

“Nice water view”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The view from the deck is nice. The food was nothing special. The service was good. The food was ok, but again, nothing special. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.

“Good food AND a view!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Sarasota/ Bradenton area lacks the "Floridian" style waterfront dining that you would hope to find here. There really are no restaurants that are "on the water" that are worth eating at in this area except this one (and we've tried them all).
We went last night at sunset, had a beautiful, relaxing view of the water, and great service. We sat inside but they do have outside dining on a nice patio.
The food was very good compared to other waterfront restaurants in this area that bank on the view and not the food. This restaurant actually cares about its quality!! I had blackened salmon which was flavorful and cooked to my liking and my husband had a chicken special which he enjoyed. Plenty of food and good value for the money.

it is situated among beautiful docked boats rocking in the water.
The food is excellent and we loved the atmosphere. There is a trolley taking you there across the pier if you prefer.
