I like most BBQ, but find some is served lukewarm with soggy sides. We found the food here really yummy. The meal comes out hot. The variety of BBQ sauces are on your table and labeled with a description: very helpful! The mac and cheese is homemade and delicious. I would recommend the ribs; they were phenomenal. Friendly service. They... More

Wow, this place knocked our socks off! The food and service were amazing! Excellent, fresh seafood with southern flair. Bread basket has heavenly. Would highly recommend the She-Crab stew!

This is a relatively small restaurant, with deck seating by the river. In addition to seafood there's a variety of other food choices. Everyone in our group was happy with their selections. The place was very busy, so obviously a very popular place. Prices are a good value. Great service.

We went for dinner - 4 adults and one toddler. Inside was a scent of paint, but it hasn't been all that long after the hurricane and several places in the area are still fixing up a bit. The outside dining area was one of the nicest along that stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway, though without screening it could be... More

Went for a light dinner with my wife. The crabcake is indeed very very good. I am on a diet that does not allow me to eat certain things. The waitress wasn't up to be patient with me and try to "serve". When I asked if there were other verve tables besides the ones in the menu she said "well... More

This restaurant is an amazing place to visit. The ambience is of local waterfront dining. The menu has great selection. Seating is available inside and dockside. Their homemade breads are served as a bottomless courtesy item. Homemade jalapeño corn bread, pumpkin bread and large yeast rolls. The she crab soup and crab cakes are an awesome selection. Their shrimp and... More

Came here for lunch and decided to sit outside on the water since the weather was so nice. James our server was very happy to make suggestions and even offered our ice tea to go at the end of the meal. I think the bread they offer to bring out is a great touch. Our meals came out hot and... More

Love, love , love the chicken fingers, and the portion is big enough to have lots of leftovers too. Interior is a bit dated, but can't beat the location. Lots of fish and wildlife to see, e.g. deer and gator, if out on the deck. Make sure you get the bread too. Incredible!
