Typical tourist restaurant. It was OK. Better places out of the tourist area. Wouldn't go out of my way to go there.

Met a friend for a holiday dinner. Good food good service. Had a good meal there as well as a couple of other times I've been there. Great bar. Generally a good meal with a nice outdoor dining space. Great for people watching.

We enjoyed this restaurant twice. Lunch specials were great as were the salads and drinks. Service and staff were super and friendly. Fair value and the best choice in this little hub of restaurants.

Very busy restaurant adjacent to the beach in Fort Lauderdale off the main drive of Fort Lauderdale. Large selection of typical restaurants but we lucked out and had Pot roast as an entree that evening. Wish we had known the size of it. Had three meals from the purchase!

We had a tasty breakfast here New Year's eve morning. My husband and I both enjoyed everything we had. The portions were just right and we had a very nice waitress.

Visited for dinner just before Christmas. Very busy but excellent service and meals served promptly. Staff were attentive and very friendly and made our party of five very welcome indeed. We also had breakfast here and the service and meals were just as good!

Ordered British style fish and chips and clam chowder. Waitress brought canned soup, bagged fries and fish that came out of a box. Disgusting food. Will never go back. Wife agrees. Never again.
