“Outdoor Bar Looking Out @ Water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is my second review of The Wharf. I went there a couple weeks ago for happy hour since we live in the area. We were shocked to see that they have a new outdoor bar. That's right an outdoor bar. All the bar seating is looks out over the water, they have fans out there and a small grill. The only drawback and the reason for a rating of 4 instead of 5 is this: at the time it was a cash only bar which had a couple different beers that we couldn't get from inside - like Corona Light and one other craft brew. So I suggest bringing some cash along with you if you'd like to sit at the outdoor bar.

“Sea breezes, cold beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

On the dock, looking out on turquoise water, enjoying sea breezes, sun and shade, watching birds and iguanas across the canal, cold beer- what's not to like?? Oh, the food's pretty good, too. Lobster B L T and sweet potato fries on my last visit,

“Loved the Lobster BLT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Fun little place right on the water. Nothing fancy, but great food and wonderful selection of beers. Nice place to spend sometime outside enjoying good food and Florida weather.

“Warm Oysters!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Three people in our party decided to try several varieties of the oysters on their specials menu. Was surprised when they were served on a piece of lettuce & they were warm! We questioned the waitress & she said they keep them in a refrigerator. I have always had them served on a bed of ice or rock salt. The rest of the food was Ok. Would NOT recommend the oysters.

“Great food, a little pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food is fantastic, service is hit or miss, the owner is very nice, proces a little high, but worth it if you are not on a budget. Has a nice fresh seafood market too.
