Food was excellent. However, we ordered the House chardonnay that was $7, and they gave us a different chardonnay at $12 a glass. When we questioned it, they said it was a typo, and did not correct our bill. Bad customer service!

Go for the sunset view! We had a lovely dinner while enjoying a beautiful sunset. Our server was very friendly and made the evening very enjoyable. The kids had fun watching and feeding the tarpon while we enjoyed a delicious meal.
