Jessica our waitress did a great job. Our food was very good, was seated immediately for dinner BUT! We were sat in the bar area and it was so noisy that I couldn’t hear myself think, literally. I will not go back for that reason...More

Amazing place to go on a Sunday afternoon and listen to some great bands, check who’s playing but we saw an awesome one, stayed there from 12:30 to 5. Has great food and even better cocktails. Servers all very friendly.

A little hard to find, but worth the effort. We took our daughter for the fresh seafood and were not disappointed. Etta, our server couldn’t have been nicer. The Yucatan shrimp and the raw oysters were not only delicious, but really well priced💝💝💝

Call them. Not "fine dining" but great food, excellent service and a quintessential FL atmosphere. If they are open, I reommend the fish tacos with papaya pico de gallo. Happy Easter!
