I was surprised that the service didn't meet previous dinners. Told the waiter that it was my wife's birthday, but he never acknowledged it or offered a dessert. The food wasn't as good as previous visits. The services & food issues might be because of the season but isn't an excuse. I will go again, just to make sure that... More

Several friends routinely eat here while in Port A. The food was good but not outstanding. Come for the scenery. We arrived late enough to avoid a crowd and sat outside to view a wide variety of docked boats. I had the crab cake, I'd rate a "B+." My favorite crab cake has always been Houston's on Kirby in Houston.

While I am not a big seafood fan, I do enjoy a good crab cake. These are the best I have found. The view from inside and outside the restaurant is fantastic, and it is overall a great dining experience.

Maybe we were tired from our drive into Port A but we were not impressed by this eatery...When chicken dishes are in the mid-teens you might expect flatware that would echo their high opinion of their food...Instead it felt like discount store forks and knives...Our waitress Veronica was attentive and friendly but for us it's one and done with Trout...

Was disappointed they did not have oysters .Dining is your choice inside or out on the deck overlooking the water and ships . Service was friendly and efficient . They have a varied bar drinks menu as well .... More
