Enjoyed a combination platter cooked to perfection. The only issue was the oysters were very chewy. Excellent service.

Right on the waterway, you can choose from indoor or outdoor dining. Outstanding service and delicious food. The fish tacos are fantastic and the key lime pie is a treat. Highly recommend!

I do not know if they had a courtesy dock for diners though there was an extensive dock area fronting the restaurant. We traveled by car.
