Fun bay view with a very casual atmosphere. Lunch was good, but a little hard to hear each other as it was very noisy in the closed air porch although it wasn't overly busy.

We are not in the Bahamas, but the spicy conch chowder will give you a little taste of it. The atmosphere is very relaxed, and the servers are always pleasant.

We’ve been to this place quite a few times over the years when visiting Punta Gorda. It does have a nice view, but besides that, the food is ‘ok’. Servers could be more attentive and more friendly. Overall I think this place is living off...More

Anytime we are in Florida, we go for fried oysters at HH. Very soft and juicy. The place is nicer and more accessible since purchased by Laishley's.

Scotty's is a bar/burger establishment similar to Harpoon's. Village Fish Market is better food but do not take reservations only for 7 or more. That is an early dinner so should be no problem getting a table.
