Three diners. Two had half price margaritas and the other, a beer. 5-6 pm is the early bird hour for drinks and reduced dinner prices. Salad bar comes with each entrée along with either a baked potato, sweet potato, broccoli or rice. One of us had a petite sirloin that actually look like a filet because I guess they cut... More

I had the petite prime rib on our first visit, and a petite new York sirloin on out second. The prime rib was very good. My steak was only OK, but I filled up on the large salad bar and unbelievably delicious baked sweet potato. Never has sweet potato so good. The waiting area was not attractive, but the restaurant...

We went twice and I had prime rib both times. Prime rib seems to be on the menu 7 days a week. A bit on the expensive side but worth it. Early Bird prices are mush better [portions smaller of course].

Let's just say it was very old and not updated probably since late 80/s. Food was a little pricey but not bad. Salad bar is good, wait staff is just ok.

We had 2 types of crab, prime rib, ribs, and the pecan pie, which was a special and was extraordinarily good. All the food was good and the service was great. But expensive though. M

A friend recommended this place for dinner. The parking lot was almost full but several people were coming out as we walked in as it was a little after 6:15 and the early bird special ends at 6. We waited about 10 minutes and we were seated by a window, Teri was our waitress. Not many vegetarian options but a... More

Excellent dinner for the last night of vacation. Large filet grilled to perfection. Could cut it with a fork! Lobster twin tails were succulent! Huge salad bar. Waitress Jen was great! Even had dinner entertainment by an osprey fishing for his own dinner outside our window in the waterway. Great recommendation by a friend!

This place has great seafood (also reflected in their prices), but while we were there (around 7pm), the noise level was so high, we could not hear each other without shouting at our round table of 4 adults and a child. As I sat and listed to nearby tables, I realized many people were having speak loudly to hear, which... More

The staff was wonderful but for the price we pad (the early bird rate) the food was nothing to write home about. The salad bar was nothing fancy, except the chilled plates. The main dish was ok. Desserts are from a box. Being overpriced is putting it mildly.

A staple on the beach. Vast fresh salad bar, excellent steaks, fish chicken. Casual yet more upscale feel. Comfortable what ever your expectations. Canal view. Early bird specials. Always a comfortable experience when visiting FMB.
