We stopped here for a late lunch - sat on the rooftop. Great view of ocean. Food was good but it took FOREVER to come. Staff stated two servers were "no show" for work that day, but all customers were waiting way too long for food and drinks. We noted the premises were rather run down, also. The women's bathroom...

Sits right at the end of the street behind Ron Jons,so an easy walk from there. This is where we take visitors for grouper sandwiches. They are huge! You can order them blackened, fried, or grilled. We order fried and it's always done perfectly. They don't bread it until you order it. So fresh, and you get a huge filet.... More

We visited as a small (5) family group on a Saturday evening. It was very busy, and we had to wait for a table. We were seated after a 15 min wait. We ordered drinks, but of the 4 beers on tap, only one (Bud Light) was available ("we're too busy to change the barrel"). There was a steady stream... More

I've been here numerous times, usually during the summer months, and after reading some negative reviews, I have to say the only real negative experience I've had are the couple of times I kind of just sat myself. But, to be fair, I hardly ever enter through the front, where they keep the hostess stand. I usually go for the... More

This restaurant, after first appearing as a nice Florida spot, turns out to be an absolute disaster. We were a party of 7, four adults and three hungry children. It took 20 minutes to get a glass of water. It was over two hours to get food for hungry kids. When I asked what had happened to our order did... More

We had a party of 8, our kids included. We were greeted and seated immediately inside. Our server Deanna was very pleasant and was sure to give us reccomendations, our food was brought out in a timely manner and was delicious! Thank you Deanna! The owners, Kitty & Alex also stopped by our table to ask how we were enjoying... More

We arrived around 6pm after visiting the space center. The place looked OK, nice view from the top. We were not greeted so thought we might have to find our own table, then finaly we were noticed. After nearly a 45 min wait (and it was not busy) we were finally seated, then had to wait another 15 mins before... More

The food is ok. The prices are expensive. The service is SLOW on a good day. The only redeeming point for is that it has a decent view if you can see past the parking lot. Unless you want to be served a second rate meal after an hour, go on to the Sand Bar. Or anywhere else.
