First time here with the woman I'm dating; she has been here before many times. Cecilia was absolutely fantastic as our server; and the GM Aaron was kind enough to come to our table to thank us for coming in. Overall experience was excellent, great food, not too expensive, on the water and feeling the breeze! I love this place!... More

We like going there because it is a very casual comfortable restaurant. We sometimes go for dinner and/or happy hour. Everyone is very nice but our servers Mary Ann and Sandy are special.

Difficult to get a handle on...it is confusing, but actually surprisingly good. It is more like a condo, pool,bar,eatery combination. A new consept for me.

Great place to watch boats go by and have a drink in the sun. We came Saturday afternoon for a late lunch and drinks. Great staff, live music was at the perfect volume and great views of the water. Decent food with good prices. I had the Asian salad with grilled chicken. Wet dressing pooled at the bottom of bowl... More

After the great reviews, I guess I expected too much. We met friends for the sunset dinner and I had the salad with a watered down blue cheese dressing, very bland and mushy fried rice with a few tasteless shrimp. The best part was a tiny but very good key lime pie. Aside from the view, nothing to recommend here.

Food is hit or miss, but the bartenders are great and the view is the best in the area. Right on the ICW so you can watch the boats go by as you enjoy a cocktail and food. Wednesday is all day happy hour and Tuesday is Taco Tuesday. Sunday is brunch day. My favorite is the tuna - any... More

We were excited to try this place for dinner after looking at reviews. It's a very busy place, but we were seated quickly at a table with a fantastic view of the water. The menu was varied. Something for everyone. The conch chowder was great. Would recommend. Service was slow to almost non-existent. I felt she was too busy and... More

Something for everyone: You can come by boat or drive and enjoy the deck on the intercoastal or the quaint and comfortable interior. They have a band occasionally and that was fun also. It is also a good place to meet for lunch. The food has been good the five times we have eaten there.

Thank Gary P
