Been here a couple times. The food is good. Servers are alright. But ultimately I have to suggest the following. ASK THE BARTENDER FOR A PINEAPPLE. Don't ask any questions. Just do it. Thank me later (or don't). Enjoy. Pulled pork Sunday special. Great!

So rude. So badly run. We won't trouble you trying to spend our money there again. I'm eager to see what this space is next, because this place won't last long.

Great place to eat right on the water while watching the boats go by. They have the best baby back ribs. Have never had a bad meal there.

We ate here because it was on the inter-coastal waterway. The food was very good. Service was excellent. We came on a Sunday night. We were able to eat out on the edge of the restaurant near the dock. Very cool that the water taxi...More
