That was the last time I will be going to The Cherry Pocket. We kept trying to give the place the benefit of the doubt but the last time we went, it was horrible. We were placed right by the kitchen so we had the wait staff running behind our seats all night. Our table had a broken leg so it wobbled the entire time, staff didn't seem to care. The place has turned into a dive, but they kept the prices of a fancy restaurant. Our waitress got our orders totally wrong & the food was only luke warm. I ordered the grouper plate & I honestly thought she brought me the wrong thing. The plate was very small which was very shocking since its almost $15. Won't be going back.

This is a local favorite, definitely a fish camp but with very good food. A fun place. Love being on the water.

We went today, we had the key west grouper which was very tasty and my wife had chicken fettuccine which she enjoyed, reasonable price, very authentic setting.

Ordered grilled fish - cold, red potatoes were uncooked and cold, asked for a cup of soup, got a bowl.
Reminded the waitress we ordered cups, she said they were cups and charged for the bowl. Will never return.

Not my usual setting for a meal but this restaurant had an appealing charm for a fishing park and bar. The fish tasted like it was freshly caught. The atmosphere was welcoming and inviting. The bartender Gloria was fun and always ready with a smile.
