“NICE SMALL PLACE THAT IS HIGH IN PRICE”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

As a resident, I some times don't make a reservation. The reason is the season. So when I showed up they ask if I had a reservation in which I said NO. sit at the bar or go outside. No problem, I like the bar. Interesting that during the whole time we were there,I saw several tables open. Ok, they have to keep a few tables open for walkins. Which they did. What about us though? Not being a jerk here but owner standing at podium couldn't offer a table to us. The food Was good but for what we got and the quantity, I would choose another place. Price is too high for a neighborhood food place. Great fish tank bar. Loved it. And the people are nice. Can't have everything I guess.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Someone said, "All the old people live in Boca. Their parents live on Longboat Key". The good news is that they are nice and fun and they all clear out early. So, go out to eat a bit later like 7:30PM and you'll find plenty of seating. I enjoyed the spinach salad and lobster mac n cheese.

“Neither good nor bad...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

The meal and service were fine, but I guess the word 'fine' defines our experience. Not outstanding, not bad. Just average.
