We went here as part of a sunset cruise deal. The meat was just lumps of beef that was just not good. They dont know how to grill steak. My sister had the fish and it was really dry. wont return.

The location is awesome. However, service was so-so. Our server didn't come back to check on our meals and one in our party wasn't pleased with her meal. The Grouper was great though.

I am pretty sure they take credit cards, I didn't pay the restaurant directly, we ate there as part of an excursion deal, we paid for dinner directly to the tour desk at the Holiday Inn.
