After about a 45 minute wait we were seated,it was happy hour until 6:30 pm,so that was ok.my entree was blackened Mahi with a sauce on the side,terrific.The service was a little slow because the place was packed on. Tuesday night.The other fish entrees were also raved about by our friends.Go early or late they are busy.!! Great food!!!

We ate here on Friday and nearly froze to death. We complained to the waiter twice but he sort of laughed our discomfit off. We will not go back.. The place was absolutely frigid.

The restaurant is located in a strip mall within Lakewood Ranch. This is a fish place and you will have the freshest fish you can imagine. There is a specials menu which includes the fresh fish on hand. if you select from this list you will then choose blacken or sauteed and sit back for a great dining experience. I had the Salmon and it was a thick cut cooked just right...highly recommend.
Service was excellent. Reservations are required if you wish to dine during 6-8 pm. The atmosphere is very nice and casual as is the dress.
