Had wonderful snapper filet special that was done to perfection. Great wine list plus they have a wine shop that you can select any wine there and pay a $20 corkage fee. Excellent service as well.

We enjoyed our meal here. Grouper fingers, salads and fish. The main reason we don't eat here more is the noise. We have a hard time hearing each other.

As this was our first visit to Boca Grande, we relied on recommendations. I had passed the Temptation earlier in the day and would never have given it a second glance. Old unassuming building and entrance (the original) and thought it was probably your typical...More
