Got there just as they opened for lunch. Sat out on porch overlooking sound. Lots of boat traffic to watch.

Service was great and the food excellent. What was really surprising at how reasonable the prices were.

Will be coming back to this place. Parking is limited

My wife and I stopped by for lunch based on a recommendation from a family member and we were delighted that we did so! We were there on a weekday and "off season" so there was not a big crowd.

The setting of the restaurant is beautiful - right on the water and overlooking the marina, so that got us off to a good start.

The server showed up promptly, took our drink orders and told us about the daily catch specials (Mahi).

I ordered the Mahi (fried) and my wife had a coconut shrimp appetizer with a salad.

Both of our meals arrived in a short while and were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The serving sizes were generous and filled us up along with having leftovers to take home.

Our server was attentive and friendly, which added to the excellent dining experience.

Don't miss this place!

We had lunch there twice in one week. Both times the food was amazing!!
I had the shrimp and grits-it's so rich and creamy, perfection!
My husband had the grilled mahi and seafood platter. It is a great setting, the wait staff is friendly and efficient.
We will be back often!

Excellent conch fritters, crab cakes and an amazing spinach salad with grilled tuna, strawberries & feta. Staff very friendly. Waterside porch overlooking the river.

We ate here recently based on the recommendation from our extended family who used to live in the area we were visiting with. If we had read the recent reviews, we would have wanted to go else where. First off, our food took an hour to arrive after we ordered. When it did arrive, it was lukewarm. What we had, tasted good, but it needed to be hot. Our server just did not pay attention to us. We wanted to have a second drink, but she just didn't come back. My brother in-law had to wave at her for a while before she recognized him. Very sad. We were very disappointed. I can't believe that management is not more active in pushing the kitchen staff and wait staff. Z
