Excellent pecan encrusted Grouper dinner. Table in back less desirable and somewhat claustrophobic. Good wine list. Service was good, but hey, it's Florida. So, you can't expect much. The hostess was amazingly cheerful and friendly. I would return.

Food excellent if somewhat pricey. All courses tasty and beautifully presented. Waiter very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended for a special night out. Being able to book a table online is great, a real bonus.

If you are AMI you need to make a reservation and go here. Food was outstanding. Red Snapper or Grouper was both excellent. The Shrimp and grits is the best I've had. Service was great. Reservations are only for inside, but after dinner take your...More
