Friends and I went there for a girls trip dinner. It was very good. The service was great, the mojitos were amazing and the food even better. I loved the mussels and beach bread. We will be back!

Call them. Not "fine dining" but great food, excellent service and a quintessential FL atmosphere. If they are open, I reommend the fish tacos with papaya pico de gallo. Happy Easter!
