I was disappointed with my most recent visit. Calamari was 1/4 breading and not tasty and sweet. Wings were just average and sauces were not exceptional. Wait staff and eating outside were the only redeeming reasons for trying it again. Happy hour really only included...More

The lunch special of Boom Boom Shrimp was really tasty! We ate upstairs on the roof with a pretty view of the water. Ask for Michele she was super friendly and took her time to get to know us!

This was our first stop for lunch when we arrived at FMB. I just had a burger, which was good. My wife had the special...which I don't recall what it was. She did say it was fine. Mixed drinks were pretty standard. Nice rooftop dining.

I am not a foodie, although I do appreciate good food and good value. While eating on vacation, esp the beach, one expects to be charged more. However being from a major metropolitan area, we expect to get what we pay for. My husband ordered...More
