Our waitress was a big help with GF items...get a sandwich and hold the bread, and the grouper or blackened grouper were excellent. The shrimp salad was good too, but 5 shrimp vs a large piece of fish...go for the fish!

Food is pretty good, service can be fast or slow depending on the night or crowds. Most seating is outside, some covered with a roof top. Go early if you want a good seat for the sunset. Live entertainment every night, check website for details....More

We didn't expect much from the outside because they were putting down new pavers for the new patio. You have to order outside and then they bring the food to you. Our eyes bulged like cartoons when we saw the portions that came out. Lots...More
