My husband and I stopped into the Blue Sunshine Patio for a relaxing Sunday lunch and we were so happy to discover this gem of a place! Food was fresh and delicious. I had the blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos and my husband had the Grouper Sandwich- both were so delicious! And they have great french fries too! Seat yourself service,... More

My Sister took us for dinner. The margaritas were yummy, food was scrumptious and the atmosphere was great! Live music and dancing was had! Sitting on the water, even during the rain was wonderful! A little pricey, but service was amazing!

Would definitely return for drinks, but not sure about dinner. The grouper was tasty and fresh. But several in our group ordered the $40 sea bass special, and they were all disappointed. So mixed reviews for the entrees. The salads were quite delicious.

My big problem here was service. It was slow as all kinds of get out. And as a single diner, I feel like I got crammed into the worst table on the floor, even though it did have a dockside view. So I waited for a server, and then I waited for my watery Gimlet. And then I waited for... More

We ate in the main dining room which was very noisy however we did have a table for 2 overlooking the water. Our waiter started out fine but was very busy so it took a while to get a glass of wine - he was serving 3 other tables of 6. We ordered the caesar salad which had way too... More

What a view, beautiful boats, picturesque bay! Wonderful way to spend an afternoon or evening sipping expertly prepared cocktails. Food is generally good, as is service. Last visit the sea bass was superb, whereas the trout was grossly overdone and tsteless. The normally friendly and prossional wait staff was asleep. We were a small group and had to repeatedly ask...

This restaurant has indoor and outdoors , first and second floor tables with music on the first floor. Five of us had dinner upstairs by the windows with views of the marina, watch where you seat due to the sun coming though the windows, yes they have shades that take care must of that. We all enjoyed our dinner and... More

The food was fantastic. Sat upstairs, view was awesome. Just not sure about the prices. I'm really glad the company paid for my meal.

Lunch visit: I had the chopped salad...it was very fresh, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, crisp iceberg lettuce, ham, cheese and garlic croutons tossed in vinaigrette. Husband had 1/2 classic Reuben and cup of creamy tomato bisque with lightly battered fries. We were both 100% pleased with our menu choices. Would recommend!

The view, the breeze, the sunshine, amazing yachts....It's all here. If you are looking for an afternoon by the water this is worth a visit. Several $5 appetizers including pulled pork sliders and loaded potato skins. Specialty drinks and beers at typical happy hour pricing. Plenty of waterside tables and great service. Enjoy!
