We drove from Longboat Key to enjoy the Happy Hour special and were not disappointed. We ordered oysters, crawfish, grouper po boy and paella. Oysters were great but could have had a little extra shucking done to disconnect them from the shell. My husbands paella...More

Server was awesome! Food was decent price and good tasting. Had grouper bites which were average. Could have been breaded little more flavorful. Chowder was a saving grace ! Guacamole egg rolls excellent as well !

It's a bar, restaurant, and has music! The bar is filled with dollar bills signed and placed on its walls and the few tables facing the sidewalk are a great place to people watch as you listen to music and have a drink/food.

This is a must if you're visiting Siesta Key! The food was delicious, the drinks were great and the live entertainment made it!!! Service was great too!!! Indoor and outdoor seating, but the outdoor seating was my favorite. Family friendly too.

Fun place to hang and get a bite in the afternoon or evening. Good seafood and drink. Good live bands to keep the pace up. Busy busy get there early on weekends or Holidays.
