The food was overpriced and the service was subpar. The food tasted decent but thats it. I wouldn't recommend it unless you just got done with the fishing trip. They cook the fish up free for an appetizer if you buy an entree.

My husband and I went for lunch while in St. Petes for a quick visit. The food was really good and the view from upstairs is great. The staff were super friendly.

We have been here a few times before, in the past, and the view from a window seat is very good. We had the grouper sandwich and fantail shrimp.

SeAfood dinner is great but a little pricy. Right on the boardwalk at Johns Pass and window seats are a plus for your dining experience. The shrimp scampi was delicious with Squash both yellow and zucchini over wild rice. The fresh water catfish was also very good and there is a children's menu.
