Had a nice lunch with the family: wife, son, granddaughter, and daughter-in-law (who is like a daughter). Everyone was able to find something to please their varied palates. Calamari was very good. Sandwiches and pizza were right on target. Service was good in spite of being slammed!

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night and we could not believe this place was still open. We live here in town and frequent many of the restaurants. Craving something new, we decided to try Yacht Basin Eatery because we had a sweet jack coupon. Service was pretty bad, it seemed that the restaurant was run by a pack of teenagers. My husbands chicken Parmesan had an insane amount of red peeper flakes in it, rendering it essentially indelible. My chicken Marsala tasted like the top of the salt shaker fell off during seasoning. Marsala it was not. When we went to pay, our teenage attendant told us that they had to tack on a 20% mandatory gratuity when using sweet jack because people tip on the discounted amount. We were shocked. A tip is a TIP! We were aggregated to say the least. Since when is 20% the standard anyway. We just thought it was presumptuous and totally rude. This was an overpriced, inedible, terrible experience. We will never go back.

I've been to The Eatery a few times.
I was pleasantly surprised at the vast menu.
The lunch and dinner menus differ almost completely.
The fish tacos at lunch are delicious.
overall it's a great place to eat.
It's right on the water with a great view.

We visited Yacht Basin Eatery for the first time this week. We enjoyed everything. The view is amazing. First we ordered the Coconut Shrimp appetizer that was referred by our waitress (Takiea) they were out of this world. For lunch we orderd the Lobster Salad sandwich and Mahi Tacos which was even better. This restaurant really knows how to please their customers and their appetites. The food portioning was by far worth it. We will be returning and sad that we haven't tried them sooner. Service, atmosphere and cuisine....AMAZINGGG!
