Relaxed friendly place with outdoor seating. If you're there at right time the sunset is awesome! Live music indoors on certain days. Good friendly service. Love the blackened fish taco platter and their beans are one of the best I've tasted. They are not thick, more like a soup, but I definitely recommend!

We went for dinner. Just not a good menu for dinner. Drinks delivered slowly and poor quality. ie lime instead of lemodn, scotcch you couldn't find, with water instead of splash, just a bartender who didn't know what he was doing.

Great place to go if you want to be on the water and weather permits eating outside. Fun place to watch pelicans up close. Service is professional and friendly. Shrimp tacos excellent and next time I will get a taco salad since they looked amazing. Cute parrot theme and beach decor. We enjoyed seeing dog owners enjoying lunch with their... More

4 of us had a good meal here. Love the bacon wrapped shrimp and the tacos. The grandkids also went parasailing from here and really enjoyed it.

We had the blackened fish tacos and beef enchiladas. Tacos were excellent, the enchiladas were fine, large portions. I find Mexican food in general tastes much the same no matter where you go. The prices were good, our waiter was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable about the source and type of fish we ordered.

We went on a busy Saturday evening. The hostess sat us and apologized in advance in case our food wouldn't arrive promptly. Our drinks and appetizers came quickly. Visiting and catching up with old friends helped pass the time. They recommended the blackened fish tacos. They did not disappoint. Extremely delicious and flavorful. They came with a side of Spanish... More

Their food is very good. Reasonably priced, family priced. You can eat in or out on the porch. They have good fish, fries, shrimp, etc. In the cages on the porch they have parrots, big ones. The kids like to feed french fries to the parrots. You are right at the bay waters and can watch the boats come in... More
