    Nice venue, but mixed results on food quality. Halibut overcooked, fish and chips well prepared.

    We took friends there for the first time and we were all very happy with our meals. The ribs, halibut, chicken and trout were all first rate. Our server, Nakia, was fabulous! Sitting outside on the patio was perfect. We will definitely be back the next time we are in St. Joes!!!

    Always one of our go to spots. The new menus are full of fresh seafood and wonderful options. Best waterfront dining option around.

    On the pricery side and an interesting vibe for being in a hotel but otherwise 10/10 service and food. I'd say worth it for a treat your self meal.

    Got in here early evening for a group event the next day and needed to eat something as I was traveling all day. The menu items looked pretty good. I was coming from a different time zone so l wanted something light. On the special were mussels as a starter and Halibut as an entree. Both were delicious and not so filling as bedtime was approaching. My server was great and the meal hit the spot.

    Ambiance, noise level and food were acceptable. Seating by the window scenic and comfortable. Staff less than welcoming. No smiles or warmth. Seemed like they were just going through the motions.

    Will not be returning. $200 for three plates of breakfast buffet food and burnt, watery coffee. Complete rip off.

    I was unsur about coming here because our last experience in the summer of 2023 was disappointing. The server was poor and a waitress decided to visit with customers seated at a table outside our window and blocked the view for 15 minutes. But I could get a reservation when I needed for a group of 5 so I went ahead with it. I was very happy that this visit was great. Good service, good food, nice location, and not too loud BTW, I wanted to try something different so I ordered the Gator Mac and Cheese. It was great!

    Very loud, hard to hear table mates due to many other patrons boisterous conversations. Acoustics not good. Cavernous room. Very nice staff. Sort of a long wait to get waited on. Food was excellent.
