Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I enjoyed grouper and my wife loved the shrimp. And the hush puppies were better than good! The portions could have been a smidgen bigger, but the quality was spot on. If your looking for great atmosphere and a good meal, then ole Uncle Ernie's will not disappoint. Mac

We've been coming here for years. Both the food and atmosphere are fantastic. Sit up top and watch the sunset over the bay.

The menu has changed a lot over the years and the prices have gotten pretty high, but you can't beat the view and the wait-staff. Entertainment is always top-notch too.

My husband and I went here for Mothers Day. We sat on the top deck at sunset. The weather was perfect, the view was spectacular, and the food to die for! The music added to the atmosphere as well.

While on vacation we went here for dinner and it was really great. The view of the sunset was spectacular and I highly recommend the salmon.

We have been coming to this fine restaurant for 20 years. Although it has had same ups and downs, the food is good and the view from the deck is unparalleled, especially at sunset. The food is outstanding but pricey. The drinks are a bit too expensive. For example, a simple martini is $11. The servers are very busy and... More

Our order was shrimp and grits, Mahi Tuna, crab cakes and grilled shrimp. No complaints on the food. Our waitress was timely and always made sure our drinks were filled... More

The atmosphere of Uncle Ernie's was great! I had the crab cakes and they were okay. My wife had the cajun style chicken pasta and she said it was okay. The waitress was really rude from the start. That is why I have to give a poor review. I decided I was going to order a beer off the draft... More
