“if busy, don't go, no seating assignment”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Great location, water front! At arrival we expected to maybe have some sort of wait. I checked in at hostest stand. and was told there would be a 35 min wait. Fine, but was unable to give a name because they dont take names. "They found it easier to not take names" and its a first come first serve but yet still a 35 minute wait. Asked how we would be seat, not answered. Decent food, but next time would eatup stairs at sushi resrurant with better view.

“Lackluster Service / Food / Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Was just in town for the day to see a game, service was slow, the food was "ok", and the furnishings felt like they needed a refresh. View of the water was nice though. Prices were high for the quality we received, but more or less expected given the proximity to tourist attractions.

“Good Fresh Seafood with a View”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We enjoyed perfectly fried shrimp with a great view of the St. John's River. Our waitress Belinda was friendly. The restaurant could have been cleaner as I had to knock food crumbs off my chair and table. The prices were rather high for the quantity of food.

“Great - don't understand the negative reviews.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

I would sit inside - outside was noisy. But the inside is quite pleasant and the views of the river and the bridges are great. We all loves our food and the service was quite good. The bacon wrapped scallops were melt in your mouth good. Well worth the prices, which were not bad at all for the food and atmosphere.
