My husband and I arrived about 7:30 on a Saturday and knew we may have to wait for a table. The hostess told us we could try to grab an outdoor table at the bar or it would be about an hour wait. A couple at a bar table was leaving and motioned over to take their seat about 15 minutes later. Loved the pina coldas and outdoor seating.I had the cocoa sea scallops and can still taste them..yummy! Husband had the mahi-mahi, also delish! Our server was top notch.. We will be back!

Best atmosphere for a beach vacation dinner. Food and service was great! Very accommodating. Prices are very good. Get there early for a great outside seat and plan on sitting for a while enjoying the food atmosphere people and your vacation.

Really loved this restaurant. We were told we would have over an hour wait, but were seated in less than that. The only disappointment was that we were seated inside, but we did tell them first available, next time I would wait the extra time to sit outside. The food was really good and we had good service as well.

We thought it was average. The wait was rather long, better get there before 5pm. The proportions for the entrees were rather small for the price. My ticket for three adults, two young children ended up being over $150 with tip. I consider that pretty high for casual. That included only one cocktail and one beer by the way and the two kid's meals. The parking was kind of ridiculous, they offer valet parking but I was afraid to ask how much it cost given what the meal was going to get me for.

Service was Ok. This place was very loud, don't go expecting to have a quiet meal. It was one of those restaurants with the constant drone of people trying to talk loudly to be head and the ding of dinnerware being cleared rapidly.

We'll go again because I think this is expected of this group of restaurants and there aren't as many choices if you need variety to satisfy a larger group of people.
