After a not so great meal the night before(up coast a couple miles), we had dinner here. Also packed but arrived around 8:30 and were seated immediately. We had an appetizer called the pupu platter (odd name but tasty stuff, ribs, wings, shrimp, etc), then it was grouper, and broiled seafood dinners. All of it was really good and fresh.... More

Every year we have friends come in from Texas,California, Ohio and Pennsylvania and they want to go to the Banana Boat for Lunch. Can't blame them for that. The food is good and the water view is great. Had 14 for lunch and we never had a problem. The food was great and the servers were always there to make... More

I've had good food and bad food. Good drinks and not so good drinks. Happy hour food is devoured by the locals in no time. The music is the biggest draw for me here as is the atmosphere.

It's your standard inter coastal restaurant with large menu and great atmosphere. I have been coming to to the Banana Boat for years it's a favorite with my family, between the food and just sitting on the water is a relaxing time.

Our server was really good and on top of things but the food was just fair. The french onion soup was very good but then I ordered a seafood crepe which was served slightly warm and the sauce was congealed (not appetizing) They took it book and microwaved it but it was inedible. Server asked if she could bring anything... More

We ordered pina coladas which did not have any rum in them at all. We complained to the waitress and then the manager and got an indifferent response from both. No attempt to rectify the matter. Then after we ate lunch which tasted ok to me, I got home and spent an hour in the bathroom. Either the mayo was... More

I have visited this restaurant many, many times over the past 20 years. Being located right on the Inter-coastal Waterway it is always a big hit with out of town friends as you get to watch beautiful yachts ply the waters as you enjoy your cocktails, meal or both. The food has always been pretty good and my one gripe... More

We were four for lunch. Thought we would sit outside since it was a beautiful day. We were seated by the Bar. Too noisy & too much smoking. We also thought we would get the lunch menu. Food was good but, too expensive for lunch.
