“OK- say no to the Key Lime Dessert”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

It was ok. I had the crabcake burger. While it was good it was nothing to write home about. The Garlic fries were ok. The Key Lime Pie that was recommended by our server and possibly the owner was supposed to be out of this world. I thought the crust was tasteless and cardboard like. The inside had a fabulous tartness but almost seemed undercooked and weepy. I would NOT get it again. On the upside the shops in that same plaza are amazing! There is also a fabulous playground in the middle where your kiddos can hang out while you wait for your food. The bar looked great.

“Not sure”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We were seated right away and we were hungry. We noticed that the other tables had rolls at their table but when our food was served we did not get any. 2 of us had full serving entrees. We asked the server and they said they would bring us some but never did. The crab cake was good but pretty pricey. One in our party had the grilled shrimp and it was great. The server did not refill the tea but was right on it to refill the other drinks. The atmosphere was nice.

“A Shame”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This place has been around a long time and has so much potential, but they are far from perfection as of today. My family and I arrived for dinner around 5pm and were greeted by an unfriendly hostess. No seating on the patio because of a party (that hadn't started by the time we left). We ordered boiled shrimp to start but were then told it wasn't available. We had fried shrimp and fish for dinner which was good, but overall the experience left us disappointed.

“Tastey”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I always enjoy the shrimp dishes and key lime pie. Our server was a jolly sort, very attentive. Try the outdoor tables if there is one available.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

One of us had the special... Red Fish, very good. One had batter fried fish... have had much, much better. One had pan seared fish... greasy. One order of the lobster bisque... had to send it back, as it was barely lukewarm. Salads were ok... had to pay extra for them. Would not return. Better restaurants to choose from.
