Our food consisted of Maine Lobster and Shrimp Scampi & Pasta and was delicious, We were allowed to sit at the table and talk after our... More

The fish every time is cooked exquisitely, they have other food but that's what I prefer! Make your reservation, it helps, but they accommodate! It's a cloth table covers and napkin type of place! Highly recommend!

We were looking for a fish dish and were not disappointed. Sat at the bar and served by a knowledgeable bartender. Food and service was excellent.

We planned to have our last meal at Longboat Key here, which we remembered from our last visit as charming, cozy and all around good food. On the waitress's recommendation I ordered the mixed scallops, lobster and shrimp. I asked it the sauce was rich and she said it was, but they could put it on the side. First, the... More

Consistent, popular restaurant on Longboat Key. The one thing I have noticed is that the prices have moved from high-medium to pretty high. We won't be back as often as the prices are leaving towards prohibitive. You can always count on your meal here though - very good food!

Maybe it was the hype about this restaurant but the experience just didn't measure up to it. Our dinner at this rather noisy crowded restaurant was quite average. The wait staff was good enough at taking our order and serving our food but was really rude when they wanted the table after we finished our dinner and we were sitting... More

We like this spot, if we plan ahead. It is very popular, and for good reason. Sometimes you can sneak into the bar for a meal, and the menu is the same. The food is terrific, as is the service. Prices are high but fair for what you get. Mostly an older crowd, and the servers do a great job... More
