My wife and I had Thanksgiving lunch here. Beautiful, bayside table, casual atmosphere. The waitstaff was attentive and pleasant. The chef even appeared to check on the food. Very nicely prepared special menu, but we'll return for some fresh seafood! Prices are reasonable.

This waterside restaurant is wonderful - remote and with a very local flavor. The Stone Crabs were the best we have had in southern Florida and the ambiance is just to be enjoyed. The BarMaid rang a large bell when boats were passing by - but not for the jet-skis. She related that they take up too much dock space,... More

We have been coming to the area for 5 years now. Recommended to this place. Went for a look & had a drink first, saw the menu, which is limited and we thought "at least what they cook should be good". Owner/chef was working and around but we made a bad choice on menu....Admirals feast.....said it was fried & steamed... More

Not at all a "Yacht Club" but a unique little place right on the water. Very casual, laid back and friendly. We ate here 4 times and every single meal was absolutely delicious. Owner and chef Michael as well as chef Orlando prepare the finest meals, served by upbeat waitress Maureen. We were so sorry to leave this place.

Had lunch after having jetski with Dreamland Tours. The stone crabs were delicious! The kids burger was great - the rest so so. Go for seafood and fish! Great service!

Arrived for a late lunch circa 1:45pm on a Saturday and got right in - only a few locals having lunch. Service was quick and attentive. On the back porch you're right on the water so the view is great. That with a cool breeze and Jimmy Buffet playing continuously in the background made for a relaxing atmosphere - very... More

It's been a year since we've been back! They have raised all their prices. Food is ok but I don't know what their giving away. Order a hamburger and get no fries you have to order sides. Very disappointed. Will not be going back.
