Wonderful service, view, food and wine list. Be sure to stop by when there's live music to enjoy too. Ideal for large groups/parties and special occasions.

All dishes prepared very well. Al fresco dining and certain nights have salsa lessons and music. Steaks were very good. Scallops cooked perfectly. Great place for couples or a family with children

The restaurant was outstanding. The view, well, you’re right on the crystal clear water. That made it so much easier and fun to watch the 7pm feeding of the very large tarpon! They’re smart fish since they show up right on time, probably 50 to...More

Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our two meals here. Beautiful setting, friendly staff. Austrian hostess was so nice on our first visit, we had to come back the next evening too. Food was fabulous too, you will not be disappointed.

Wow...I agree that would be the quickest way to lose business, but have not spoken to management so I have not had this type of unpleasant conversation.
