Reviewed 10 June 2018

The location here is amazing, you can sit and look out over John's Pass, people watch and see the water. Because of the location and the fact that this is in the center of a tourist mecca they are always very busy.

Seating is fairly quick and the table staff all try very hard to be as friendly as possible.

We stopped in and ordered drinks which were very tasty but way overpriced for what we received but we did mention this is a tourist trap already so you are going to pay a premium price on everything and the real estate has to be the majority of the overhead here.

Service is very slow, not sure if it was our server or if they were not staffed appropriately but either way at times we wondered if we had a server. We made the mistake of ordering food here, Both of our orders were extremely dry and overcooked.

I will give them 2 stars due to the servers being so friendly and outgoing but not a place we will return to.

Over priced , food not really good made my stomach hurt . Lobster bisque tasted like it was mixed from a packet . Crab stuffed Flounder was a big disappointment .

Our server was so very sweet! Food tasted fabulous! View was great! High tops on deck could have chairs a bit higher, I’m tall and I still felt low to the table. The Spivey sauce on the pasta was to die for! I had them put it on the scoring scampi!

We’ve been to John’s Pass many times, but have never eaten at this restaurant. So, we thought we’d give it a try. Our seating was on the upper deck so we could see the dolphins perform in the channel. Our female server was attentive, efficient and responsive. Food was actually good, but way overpriced. We did enjoy the outdoors dining and the dolphins show, but can find better prices elsewhere.
