The location is wonderful, and the service that our waitress, Dana, provided, was friendly and accurate. One person in our party had gluten concerns, and Dana provided the information to the kitchen so the meal could be provided well.

This is one of our "go to" places, as it is close to home. The location is so "Florida" with a marina, outdoor seating on the river, great sunsets, a large bar that has music, with plenty of TV's, and fun items on the walls....More
