Visited last night and loved it. We were in for about 1630 and watched the place fill up very quickly. There is a specials menu that is on between 1630 and 1730 (i think!). Our table was next to a window with wonderful views down the river. Food was excellent, rib eye and prime rib and service was fast, courteous... More

Against my neighbors advise I tried a local place in Osprey called the waterfrontoo. I am not a person who writes reviews but this place was so bad I must. We were seated at 6:03 pm, waiters were slow and provided little service, the salad had more dressing than lettuce. We ordered steaks at 6:15, at 7:00 the waitresses got... More

Our family visit to this restaurant included six people, one in a wheel chair. The waitress, Linda, was the best. She was especially kind to our handicapped family member. We all had great drinks and affordable meals. The atmosphere was enjoyable and clean, and the menu was large enough to fit all of our requests. Although I do not care... More

We discovered this restaurant by accident, happily. And to think it is has been in our neighborhood for 21 years! We arrived late evening during the week and discovered a lovely and spacious interior with bar, table and booth seating. Our waitress, Linda, who has been at the restaurant for its 21 years, was simply delightful: friendly and helpful in... More

Had a wonderful time with my favorite bartenders. Awesome drinks. Sunset was really nice off the back and now it's time to jump on the boat and enjoy the great weather!

As locals for over 10 years, we have patronized this restaurant many times. Normally, we are satisfied with both the service and the food, but this trip was HORRIBLE!!!...The service at the bar was typically friendly and attentive. The food on the other hand was BAD. We both got the gyros, to go, as is our norm. We've had them... More

Hi Peggy, Sorry to hear about the gyros that night. I'm glad the gyros you have had in the past here were good. Next time you visit ask for me and I'll make it right. Also for the future try and review the good times as well! Happy Holidays! More
