Great little place on Anna Maria Island. My wife and 12 year old son had Tai ribs, which they loved and I had their version of surf n turf, a good size filet mignon in Demi glacé with 3 jumbo shrimp, red cabbage and garlic mashed potatoes. My steak was perfectly cooked to my specification. We also had their "Titanic"... More

I have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed the experience. I usually have one of the delicious specials but also always order the incredible beet tempura.

Wasn't sure about this place based on reviews and first impressions driving up. However, once inside and taking the first bites, my opinion changed for the better. Food was really good, fresh and local with friendly staff. I definitely got the feeling this was where the locals ate. I had the Margate snapper and my wife had the gulf shrimp.... More

Great service! Delicious drinks! Fish and lobster tacos were forgettable. French onion soup was delicious. Salads were typical. Probably wouldn't come back. Overpriced considering the flavor. This place is having a bit of an identity crisis in my opinion. We wanted to love it:(

We ate here January 2016; returned 3 Jan 2017. It was better this year. The place is a little small, but has outside seating available. The food is quirky, but delicious. The beet tempura was really good (and I don't like beets); it feeds two or three. Service was good, beer selection ample. We really like this place

We come to Anna Maria Island almost every Christmas and this has become our favorite restaurant. The menu is always interesting and fun, the food is fresh and tasty, and the service is great. Our favorites include lobster and shrimp tacos, Scottish salmon with horseradish cream and sausage pizza. They also have interesting wine based cocktails (they don't serve liquor).

Very poor food experience , been here many times very unlikely to return. So overpriced for small plates with small amounts of food. Not going to use this restaurant again.

Small area also with outdoor seating. Zinfindel served small portion in small glass. Large selection beers, wines. French onion soup delicious Kale salad finely chopped with almonds and cranberries amazing. Salmon was very good. Waiter was absent minded and just absent much of the meal, but hey it's new year's Eve so I don't care.

Seafood is always fresh and we'll prepare. I love the selections on the menu. There is usually a specials page and plenty to choose from on the regular menu. The salads are fantastic and good for sharing or as a meal. The poutin French fries are a must have. First time I ever had them. Pot roast and gravy over... More

This is not somewhere to go for hamburgers. They have the best menu of all the places we ate at during our week long island stay. Wonderful variety of seafood fare yet very kid friendly. Instead of bread they bring saltines and a tasty four cheese spread. Shrimp and lobster tocos had a delicious pineapple salsa. Plenty of shrimps. Veal... More
