“Great views on the water!”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

This location is just gorgeous, and the food great too. They usually have a fun selection of fresh fish for sandwiches, and their Angus burgers are yummy too! Land Shark beer on tap!

“Fun place, good food, open air, right on the water.”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

And for those of you who get chilly in the cool Florida winter evenings, they have these very cool heaters that they wheel around if you want one by you. Nice mix of seafood and other entrees. Our appetizer, meal, and drinks were all good. Waitstaff fund, friendly and helpful. The best part, though? It is decorated like a tiki bar, and you get to be out in the open air. For a January trip to Florida to find some warmth, this was AWESOME. Another plus for some of you - they had live music while we were there - yay for finding a tiki bar atmosphere in Bradenton. We were delighted!

“Fun Place”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The grouper sandwich was the special and it was great. Live music and the best view right on the water. Casual dining and a fun atmosphere.

“Slow, crappy service!”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Takes forever to get drinks, even longer to get food. They don't play music on certain nights (really, a bar without music?) They close the tiki bar when they please and the owner's a jerk.
The bar is a great idea under poor management (ownership). We're locals and won't go back.

“great location, decent 'bar & grill' food”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

The setting is beautiful. We were there at lunch and the service was just fine. The food was decent. It's not gourmet, but it was good for what you'd expect from a 'bar & grill' type place. I'd go back, and would surely recommend it to friends.
