Come at 5:00 to catch a glimpse of the monster size grouper feed off the dining deck at this time. Cold beer and fresh fish. Great casual dining.

Went to On The Inlet for our Anniversary dinner. We ordered the seafood platter to share and it was the best that I have ever had. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

We had the best seafood dinner here! The service was exceptional. We had a table overlooking the inlet which was really lovely as the sun went down. Highly recommend eating here.
