The grouper and snapper sandwiches were excellent. The staff keeped watch excellently on the status of our drinks etc. we ate outside to enjoy the salty air. Feels like a local hangout. The view is simply boats in a marina.

Fair prices, decent menu, and quick service made this breakfast above average. The wait staff noticed that we were checking out the beers on tap, and proceeded to educate us on the brew selection and specials. We are looking forward to checking out a happy hour with craft beers on tap.

Went there with friends Saturday night. Very friendly wait staff, good menu selection of appetizers, sandwiches and seafood entrees. The pricing is very good for the amount of food on each entree. For a Saturday night, the place was not over crowded or noisy and the view over the docks and river was very pleasant. Roomy outside dining, live band playing at the outside bar, and plenty of parking. This little place is tucked away along the Anclote River and worth the drive and search to get there.

Went for a late lunch here on a Saturday and got the last parking place at the front of restaurant. There may be other parking but the restaurant is located at the Port Tarpon Marina in Tarpon Springs and a lot of the parking is for boat owners and marina customers and is labeled as such.
We were quickly seated at an outside table overlooking the moored boats and the traffic on the Anclote river. It is quite a nice view there on the waterfront. I ordered the fried shrimp with fries and coleslaw and my wife had a Reuben Sandwich with fried onion rings. I received 6 large nicely breaded and fried shrimp which were delicious. The fries were cooked perfectly and the coleslaw was good. My wife's sandwich was excellent but the onion rings were a little greasy but still good. For the price, the portons were very good. The beer was served very cold. The service on this day was pretty slow but one of the servers indicated they had been hit with a big takeout order and that was causing things to slow down. This is a standard marina eatery so do not expect linen tablecloths. In all the food was quite good and we will definitely go back for the food and the view. There is inside and outside seating and they sell beer and wine. Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There was a guy playing guitar and providing entertainment when we were there and there is evening entertainment also.
