Our family enjoyed a stellar dinner at an amazing restaurant with great signature cocktails, especially their version of an old-fashioned. Favorite appetizers we sampled were the short rib ravioli, conch ceviche and the shrimp cocktail, which is served with burrata. We all had seafood entrees which were well-proportioned and prepared perfectly - wild garlic shrimp with linguine, red snapper, seared sea bass and catch of the day mahi mahi. We did not have dessert as we were absolutely satisfied with the appetizers and entrees. Our table was waterside which provides a beautiful sunset view. Check out the cool bar before or after dinner.

Came here with family to celebrate the Xmas holiday and my 50th birthday. Food and service were both outstanding. Seated at table on porch overlooking outdoor seating and the beautiful coastline. Our waiter Dustin made some great recommendations and the Octopus & Calamari appetizers were great and the lobster & potato main course was absolutely delicious. Everyone enjoyed their drinks & meals and Dustin took good care of my brothers who have severe wheat allergies. This is not a cheap meal, but the view, food & service make it worthwhile and a great spot for a special occasion meal.

Large group of 11 showed up after a quick bike ride around the West Loop. The staff quickly arranged space for us.

Can't sat enough about the great service, cold beer and the food - particularly the conch.

Great to see another part of the island, undisturbed by cruise tourism.

Amazing service and food! We loved it here. Was nice to get away from the craziness of SMB to enjoy fresh seafood and a water view!!

Enjoyed a sunset dinner (5:30pm seating 26Dec17) on the upstairs porch. Still a nice view of the ocean and sunset even though we were not in the prime seating waterside at this busy time. Menu had many seafood selections but also nice choices for those in our group with more of a taste for meats. Appetizers were stellar, to include the signature conch (my first - loved it), which was surprisingly tender with a delicate flavor. I could have made this my meal but we instead shared to be able to sample more. Everyone in the group was extremely pleased with their entree selections from the sea or land. Deserts were also excellent, and nicely presented. Service was excellent throughout. Will definitely go back next trip.
