Like some of the other reviews, we had a hard time figuring out how to get to the bar. We ended up walking through the the hotel, where there was no one to ask directions, and finding the bar area in the back. There we discovered the dark pass through entrance from the outside. The food was average. The service... More

We had a nice dinner overlooking the marina and watching the sunset. Shrimp was very good. Deep fried the way I like it. French fries were also very good. Large menu to choose from.

We went for dinner last night. The table next to us was full of drunken adults who swore, smoked and shouted during our dinner and management did nothing. We had to ask them to tone it down, as there was an 11 year old and her grandmother with us. This did not work . Our drinks orders were wrong, and... More

At first glance, this restaurant seemed a bit sketchy. Boy was I wrong! Generally, when you see a menu this large and diverse, your first thought is "How can they be great at any of these items?" We sat outside and they were playing live music, which was enjoyable. We then ordered an appetizer of rare seared ahi tuna, which... More

The Greece needs to be changed! The music was intolerable! ! The bar had music, and the jukebox had music! Both at the same time and volume... The waitress told us we could move inside???? Defeats the purpose of water view!?!? Mixed drink was lacking. Lime was old and dry... we left quickly...😯

Every now and then we get a very special treat. The Bearded Clam was one of those occasions. My wife and I went there on a recommendation because of the location. As we walked in it looked like you typical oceanside bar/restaurant. It's a really pretty spot on a small harbor, but I didn't expect much from the food. I... More

Some friends took us to this tiki bar/restaurant that we probably would not have found on our own. Tucked behind an older Ramada Inn on Tamiami Trail, is a great little restaurant/bar with very good food and great ambience on the water.
