Three of us had dinner. I had the grouper almondine - delicious! The other 2 had the steamed snow crab; said it was excellent. Can't say enough great things about this place. Been coming here 20 years, never disappointed.

Freshly filleted from the Gulf grouper blackened and broiled was absolutely marvelous. Our waitress Dakota was a Delight, along with Donna and Corey the bartender. They were all welcoming knowledgeable about the food and menu and fun. We will be back.

Very dated nautical themed waterfront restaurant. Very small bar, inside dining only but good waterfront views. Menu a stale but OK. Not much else to say. Would I go back, maybe.

I wanted to like this place, the view was great and interesting pelicans in trees near the parking lot. I tired the BBQ ribs and the sauce was sweet and tasted like a ketchup base-and the ribs were not that meaty. Homemade chips were overcooked-...More

Clearly, the view is the main attraction as window seating required a 15 minute wait. Casual dining, well worn tables and chairs, plastic sealed menus. Full bar with a decent selection of commercial and craft beer. The wait staff friendly. The prime rib was tender...More

We do not take reservations, however, if you have a party of five or more we will put you on the waiting list early. This helps to reduce or possibly eliminate your wait.
