Food is not that good and therefore overpriced. Steamed shrimp are tasty. Tuna way over cooked. Deviled crab cake completely forgettable. Conch fritters basically dough balls with little flavor. Two families (8 total) total bill with tip was around $270 (around $80 was drinks 😲)....More

The steamed shrimp were excellent! The onion rings were not as good as they should have been. They were overcooked. The view is excellent. You need to go relatively early or you will be in for a wait.
