We ate here on a Sunday night, so business was slow- we had no wait at all to be seated, which was great. Mom and Dad both ordered the seafood platter, which did not disappoint. Dad ordered fries and potato salad. I'm not usually a potato salad fan, but this was awesome! Mom got the sweet potato fries and cheese... More

The drinks were good. I got sick from the food. My fried seafood was overcooked, greasy, and tasteless. My friends had burgers with no complaints. Had the food been properly prepared, it still would have been overpriced. It was plainly overpriced bar food near the ocean. It is sad to think that this is the average of what one would... More

Spent a wonderful afternoon with visitors having a casual drink and talking while watching the ocean waves. When it got cooler they brought over a heater, and did everything they could to make us comfortable, Definitely going back.

There were six of us that decided to eat there for lunch. The cost was $107 (which included the mandatory $18 tip that was included because there were six of us) and it was worth every penny for the fresh seafood that was served. We were served by April who was an absolute pleasure. She knew the menu and helped... More

Good food, very friendly service. But we were told one price for our grouper sandwichs and charged a higher price. Waitress apologized, but not good business practice.

good food, location was great but food was very expensive, its good place to go ones. if you really wanna go there and seat outside watch the ocean, check the weather, if the weather very windy, you should look other options.

Enjoyed lunch on the back deck overlooking the pool and the marina activity as they launched boats from dry storage to the bay. At the suggestion of the waitress I ordered the shrimp and bay scallop pasta dish with a salad. The house salad was very good. Nice and crisp. The pasta dish came with a piece of bread which...

Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. Our waiter was engaging and did a great job. It was for sure one of the better meals we've had while we were gone.
