It was our 40th anniversary, and not only was the food excellent, but our server Matt was outstanding. The only negative, the screens were up, as it was a beautiful day and when the dock light went on the bugs were attacking a few of us. Now that we know that we will make sure we do not sit near the light again. Overall it was a very nice night. Thank you Matt.

Glad to see this local favorite back on track. The newly revised menu is a welcome change. We really enjoyed the specials. Service was excellent last night- from the hostess table to the manager.

We went there for Christmas dinner and our check was $300 which we were expecting to pay for a good dinner but the food was just awful and our waitress was the absolute rudest person ever, I bit my tongue through the entire dinner and still left a 20% tip because it was Christmas! Out of 10 people not one person wanted a To-go box and not one person left happy and to top it off the 4 people that had the snapper were running for the restrooms, so no I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone and this is the first time I have ever left a bad review for anything! Run!

We came at 4 we had reservations. Three people wanted scallops wrapped in bacon (who could pass that up and then they all wanted carrot cake and both items were out. Poor planning on your part.

Not what expected. Disappointed with visit. Very limited menu offerings. Not much seafood available for a “seafood” restaurant. Skimpy portions. Food served “luke warm” not “hot”. Server inattentive. Pricy. Limited parking available.

Came in for Thanksgiving dinner.. Waitress didn't seem to be very happy working on the Holiday.. Service was a little slow and forgot items that we asked for.. Had to get someone else to get them.. It was our first time trying the restaurant and overall it was a good experience.

Attendant brought us to table. We had asked for window seating, but even though there were a few open the attendant said they “weren’t clean.” Also, folks were not meeting the dress code- yuck.

We were looking for a waterfront seafood restaurant for dinner. It was a nice waterfront location and our table was cozy. The booth benches are connected and the person behind me kept shifting in his chair and was bouncing all around. The conch fritter were delicious. The tuna was horrible. It was super thin and I ordered medium rare and it was cooked medium well. The server asked if I wanted to send it back but them my son would have been done with his dinner by the time I got it back. The server could not believe how thin the tuna was. I think they were running out and decided to cut the tuna in half. The server should have had a manger come to talk to me and taken some money off my bill but none of that was done. I would not go back to this restaurant when I go back to this area. They are just ripping off the tourists.

My granddaughter's birthday was June 20th, 2018 and we were seated at open table dining by the water. KAREN was our waitress. I can't say enough about this wonderful woman. She took pictures of us as requested and also by the mural. Service was excellent, food was great. I will definitely use open table again and we'll certainly ask for KAREN !!

Since seating is covered patio - basically outdoors - there is no air conditioning. Service was fairly slow but we weren't in a hurry so that was acceptable for the evening. Getting 2 bottles of bottled water took almost 30 min. Food was OK. Menu has several options and food was hot. Nothing I couldn't do at home. Live music was very loud. Made conversation almost impossible.

We stayed at the hotel on a Wednesday so the place was not crowded. Staff was super cheerful. Good service..conch fritters were over cooked but the fish sandwich and calamari were well prepared. The drinks were perfect and a fair price. Also an outside with a Key West vibe. Beachy..with music.the view of the water fantastic.

Captain Hiram's is so unique!! I have lived in Brevard County for 28 years and only been down to Sebastian a handful of times. I NEVER miss the opportunity to go to this amazing resort bar/restaurant. It has something to offer everyone! The view is completely unbeatable and the service is great. The food is fresh and ready quickly! Great times!!!!! If you have a boat you can even pull up and dock there and use the resort amenities and they will even prepare the fish you caught that day! It is a hidden GEM!

Had the best time for my mom’s family birthday dinner. The food, atmosphere and view was wonderful as always. Mussels with Chorizo appetizer was fantastic! Travis our waiter was attentive and patient with our older, hard of hearing birthday girl and also had the rest of us rolling with laughter every time he was back at our table :)
