Nice room to view the bay from your table. Menu reminds me of a 70's style seafood menu. Food was average at best.

Waitress Tracy was very helpful in finding a table to accommodate 2 wheelchairs and continued to offer friendly service. I would not order the oysters Rockefeller here. They are not cut out of the shell and can't be tasted through the massive amount of spinach...More

Being from a shore area, we have had more than our share of seafood. Though it was a pleasant and satisfactory lunch, I would not say it was outstanding. Fine in a pinch, but I would not return.

Great location with delicious plates and selection. Had a fairly decent selection of drinks but slightly limited in the on-tap beer selection. Great view, friendly staff, and great food! Corn fritters are an absolute must, they are sooo good!

It's at John's Pass and its been there forever. Lots of locals and tourists eat here; it's good food, with grouper, pastas and fried clams, oysters and salads. The fish and chips are good, the corn fritters are THE best around I will say that....More

Between windows and water there is a boardwalk so you do not necessarily see the water at night but you are able to see it in the day time
