Eaten here a couple of times and overall the food is pretty good! The servers are nice. The oysters Rockefeller are well good. Steak was cooked to perfection. The sweet potato mash is another good dish. Gratuity is built into the bill per the norm for Miami and South Beach.

It was the first day of spring breakers. WOW! what a crowd. We made reservations and that was a good thing. We also chose to eat inside with that was a good choice, too. When we arrived it was so crowded we could hardly get onto the sidewalk due to all the people standing in line waiting for a table. However, when we got inside there were empty tables. People just wanted to be outside. We wanted to eat. The waitresses were very nice and attentive without being overbearing. We both had crab/shrimp louie salads - which was difficult to find a restaurant that served it. The salad was huge and fantastic. We shared the fried calamari appetizer- good large portion. They used fresh grease to fry in, too. It is definitely a noisy place. One waiter must have a hearing problem because everytime he spoke he was yelling. He had one of those football on the field, booming voices - disturbing and aggravating. It is a sports bar. The key Lime pie was good. the third that I have had in Florida. I would go back there. If it's spring break I would call Uber Eats,.

Went here as a group of 3 people and found the food good and prices reasonable for the area. The main problem was bad timing and then rushing us
The starters were good and plentiful if not a bit too greasy. Then it started. Bringing out the main course before we even had finished the starter. The tables aren’t built to hold 3 starters and 3 main meals
All during the meal the staff kept clearing items from the table whilst we were eating. Why not leave the customers to finish the meal instead of disturbing them constantly
Another problem that the lady serving you could not provide us with 3 separate bill and ended up having to work it ourselves on how much we owed etc. All the other places we visited somehow managed to do that without too many problems

Made a reservation online for a Saturday night, once we arrived the hostess was turning people away and told us we were not on the reservations list and attempted to turn us away. We had to show them our online confirmation to be seated, they were also requiring people to sit on the crowded sidewalk. After being seated I spoke with the manager and he apologized and offered to buy our party a round of drinks, we accepted and enjoyed our meals very much. Would definitely recommend.

We had planned to dine elsewhere but that property was not open for lunch. So i looked on internet for recommendations, found this property and we were not disappointed. I had one on their specialty sangria and my husband had a draft beer. The Mahi Mahi and Grouper Reuben sandwiches were delicious and plentiful. Our server Laura was attentive and friendly! We would definitely return !
