Just had an awesome dinner, with great service, fun place. We arrived around 7:30 PM.
Very few waterfront places on the west coast, that have good seafood. I live over here. Have looked at several for two years, and this was the best and most fun. Kids were here from Iowa. Son had Whiskey BBQ Ribs, Great!! He does not care for sea food.
The Oscar Grouper was the best I have ever had, Make sure if you like grouper, order it!!!!
The blue crab stuffing and Flounder, with a shrimpn sauce was very good. Blue crab stuffed mushrooms are Huge!! We will go back and take friends and family. It is only 45 mins away, but well worth it.

Stopped for a drink and appetizers. Food was OK. The location was great though on the water. Nice big deck to sit outside. Looked like a fun place at night. Will have to check it out next time.

Just what I was looking for ......waterfront, good food, cold beer, and friendly people. Dolphins were swimming right next to the building! Very laid back and comfortable.

Awesome place that is not easy to find. Even though it is one of the only waterfront restaurants at Siesta Key, it is kind of tucked away. The view is awesome, we saw dolphins swimming by. The blackened grouper sandwich was great, and my wife really enjoyed her florida cobb salad. All of the food seemed of a high quality, and the prices were very reasonable. Our server Smitty was excellent, and took great care of us. We will be going back soon.
