This is a great location, overlooking the marina. Neat outdoor bar downstairs and outdoor dining upstairs as well as a lovely dining room. Great staff - hostess was delightful, bartender was good, and our waitress was excellent. But the food was average at best. Crab cake appetizer was delivered barely warm (they did take it off the bill), Caesar salad... More

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary with another couple. I can't tell you our waiters name because he didn't tell us. He was inattentive and not very personable. There were delays and confusion with our orders and which resulted in the restaurant voluntarily removing charges from the bill. Our water glasses were not refilled until we asked.... More

Happy Hour 3 to 6 On the waterfront. Only 2 of the appetizers did not contain seafood. But everything was great I'm only rating happy hour which was reasonably priced.

Last time we were there it wasnt very good. We decided to give it another try. Grandsons chicken was burnt. The french fries seemed old and then realized....time to change the oil in the fryer! Awful tasting and they had just reopened only 2 days ago! My salad was served with the bottom end of the onion which you couldnt... More

It has good food with a very good bay front view. You will need to give yourself some time for your reservation as Estero Blvd is heavily traveled, especially now during the construction work. The food was above average and priced a little high but you are also paying for the view. The pot roast was a culinary surprise as... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch based on the trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Very nice restaurant with bayfront views and excellent food. I had a grouper sandwich and my wife had the lobster bisque with a crab salad sandwich. Both were very good. Service was excellent and the white table cloths added a nice classy... More

Our table was ready on time, our server was knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. The kitchen was a little slow, but all four meals were excellent and hot. After looking at other reviews, my guess would be perhaps we had better luck because we were there in the off-season (September). Expensive, but worth it for special occasion. The bar downstairs at... More
