Love the atmosphere, the decor, the live band (Sat night), the view, the waterfront location and of course the food. The Key Lime Colada cocktails were delicious, I’d love to see them on the menu in other places or give me your secret recipe. Highly...More

Has a wonderful view of the inter-coastal waterway as you can watch boats pass by while you eat. Service was decent, food and menu is pretty standard and average. I had the jambalaya and it was pretty average.

This is a nice restaurant right on the water. Our waitress was super nice and even gave us some extra fries. We had the fish and chips and they were very good. Loved seeing all the boats. We would definitely return.

Grouper & shrimp granchio were outstanding. I had oysters Rockefeller which was very good. We had a table outside, which added to the ambience. We just missed the live entertainment, so can’t comment on that. Wait staff were personable & helpful

Stopped in last minute. Two girls at hostess station were less than enthusiastic. Server attended to us promptly and drinks came quickly. Food was okay at best. There are better dining options in the area.
