We waited only 15 minutes for a table, which was fine, but there seemed to be a lot available and we had to go back up and remind the hostess we were waiting. The sat us on the very front corner of their pier, where the restaurant is located - sort of near the Holiday Inn on Palm Beach. The... More

It was so nice to eat a meal on the pier and have a beautiful view of the water! The grouper was excellent. Only complaint was the fries were a little bland, but the other meals more than made up for it! We got a sampler appetizer for two for one of our meals and the calamari was the best... More

Stopped by for cocktails and stayed for lunch. Sandwiches were huge. Appetizers were very good. Came back again for dinner and the grouper and mahi mahi were awesome. Very reasonable prices and had an amazing view of the sunset.

Looked like a fun place, so went in to have a cocktail. It was with my. We went to bar and ordered a few beers. The bartender couldn't make change for a few beers after giving him a $20 and said we'd have to wait a bit....We sat a nearby table. We were approached by a waiter who tried to... More

We ate here twice. The first was an evening and it was a very nice dinner on the pier. Service was ok. We each had fish (grouper and snapper) and they were both excellent. The sides were just ok. Unfortunately we ate again for a lunch. We told them ahead of time that we only had 45 minutes as we... More

Well, the service charge is included and the waiter acted like she knew tips were not coming. If you want a good view, but don't care about the average food or poor service - this is the place. Menu selection is poor. No burgers or sandwiches served after 6pm.

I truly wanted to give an amazing review of this restaurant but our waiter was horrendous and he spoiled our experience. We went for dinner after a cruise, got amazing seats right beside the water. Things just started badly. My friend was asking if the coconut shrimp came with a dip or a sauce. He couldn't understand what those words... More

Popped in for lunch on at high tide. It was great seeing the waves break all around you. Cheaper than at the hotels the food and service were ok but ah, that setting! Well worth it.

If you want to dine with great sunset view, this is the place to be! The food was average, nothing to write home about. If you're thinking about taking your kid there, keep in mind there's no kids menu but they offer hamburgers and chicken tenders at normal prices. If you need to use the restroom, keep in mind, you're... More
