The food was good- a lot of fried options- the service was friendly and the view was amazing! Sit on the porch if at all possible!

We enjoyed lunch on a weekday afternoon with no wait to be seated. The patio tables facing the beach have a great view, but we didn't see the inside of the restaurant. To use the restroom, you must go next door to the public beach facilities. My seafood chowder was some of the best that I tasted in the area... More

This place was recommended to us by a sales person in one of the stores at Pier Park. I wish we had not heeded the advice. We had fried and blackened mahi mahi. The fish was was dry, the hushpuppies were dry, the french fries didn't taste good, and the cole slaw was dry. I had a strawberry daiquiri that... More

Decent food with an awesome view. Priced for the location and not so much for the quality of the food.

I had the fish tacos which were good but not great. The fish seemed to be a little undercooked. The portions were quite large and for $10 its hard to beat the value. The black beans were pretty bland. The Key Lime Pie was quite good even though they serve it with an Oreo crust and put chocolate on top.

We had cheeseburger and fish tacos. They were okay, but just average. We went to watch sunset, but pier got in the way.

I'm glad you could join us, but sorry to hear that our meal and our view didn't quite meet your expectations. We normally hear positive feedback about our signature fish tacos, but we might have been having an off night.

I've eaten here a couple times but usually avoid during the season due to crowding. I prefer a table outside, the ones facing the beach are nicest but quite small. The menu is surprisingly large and you can't go wrong with seafood of any kind. Some nights there is acoustic music on the patio. And the sunsets can be spectacular.

Hubby and I stopped for dinner Saturday night. We had the chips and salsa and guacamole, burger and tacos. Everything was delicious. It is very casual and the food is good. Go on a sunny day and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets.

OK food nothing exceptional. Fish tacos are much better at spinnaker at about the same price. And spinnakers offers a much better atmosphere and view of the beach. Waitress was just OK too. She forgot a couple of things we requested but was attentive enough

We went here our first night at PCB and were slightly put off by the "cash only" handwritten sign, the long wait, and the overwhelmed hostess that informed us of the long wait. So we left to find another place, granted we were tired having been up since 3:00 am. What a mistake!! We can back earlier and prepared with... More
