Nice location on the beach, however drinks were weak and food tasteless and expensive. After a brief rain the restaurant smelled like sewege ,not very appealing for dining. Extremely loud with live entertainment.

My husband wanted a fish meal and this seemed to be a lIvely restaurant and bar. I'm not a fish eater so the menu was very very limited for me. My husbands swordfish looked amazing and tasted great. It was very noisey and badly lit inside.

Very pleasant lunch thanks in great part to the great location right on the beach and next to the pier, friendly service, and nice laid-back atmosphere. The food is ok but the prices are a bit high for the food. I guess it's worth it for the location.

Server was fast but kitchen could not keep up. Food was very salty, couldn't eat it. Nice view of the beach and vibrant, a place to go for a busy lively atmosphere, but not great food or service.

We ate here twice during our stay. The food overall is excellent. The price is a little on the high side but so are the portions. I would prefer a little less portion with a more reasonable price. This is also an extremely noisy enviroment. My wife did not like it. In addition we had a party of 12 and... More

We sat on the deck and the view is absolutely beautiful. The service was great and we loved the food. We had the Stone Crab Claws, Conch Fritters and the Chicken... More
