My sister-in-law took me here for lunch while visiting them in FL. I enjoyed the view, the music, and the food. I had fried grouper bites, and she ordered fried grouper sandwich. Our service was good. Glad that we dropped in for a visit.

We had the sriracha and garlic wings with onion rings and Whackoburger with potato salad. The burger was good. The potato salad was horrible and had no flavor. The wings were bad, and tasted like fish. They should have separated the fish oil from the...More

Not sure. We always enjoyed the food here. Breakfast on Saturday with the young man playing music was especially good. Plus dinner on a few occasions. Shame the other people did not find it so good.
