    Had a reservation for 2:00 & we were seated promptly. Skye was the server; very good. Food was plentiful and good. Noisy outside but since we sat directly near the water we were not surrounded by other tables on all sides so could converse easier.

    We are regular patrons- I suppose inflation has hit every one, but there was definitely less steak in the steak salad- dinner rolls would have made it more filling

    Celebrating a birthday that was made extra special by the spectacular view! From the first sip of an Apple martini to the to die for coconut banana cream cake, this meal was 5 stars. I had one of the best burgers. If you are in the area, it’s a definite must!

    Very disappointed haven't been here in awhile. Made reservations a month ago. it was originally for a six top outside for my birthday. Since it turned into a 3 top i was took to a side inside room in the back corner no view. I had my adult son with me and my husband. At this point why eat at Banana Boat. no ambiance no personality and now my birthday is over. i asked the hostess please give me a view or outside anything NOPE so probably won't be back anytime soon if at all and Banana Boat is my favorite place to eat on the water. I've lived here for 4 years and you don't care. but so disappointing i've waited to eat here and have my dirty banana drink. just sad my birthday is over and the host didn't care.

    As usual, a delicious meal was had by all. Come here on average once a week year round and I like the predictable great expectations of most things on the menu. Plus they vary the menu and specials are always great. Servers always put on a great face even with the most trying of customers who tell them after the meal, they want to split 10 ways! The view doesn’t stink either! Not a tourist but this is my favorite place to eat on the water

    We always like to go out for lunch. In this way we can get a very good idea of what the restaurant is all about. We were very pleased with Banana Boat. The valet parking is very convenient, and especially in Florida, saves a long hot walk. The atmosphere is lovely. There is indoor seating, which we like, and outdoor seating. All seating facing towards the large draw bridge. The bridge opens constantly, allowing very large yachts to pass. The food is wonderful. We had crab cakes. Filled with lots of lump cran and a nice sauce. Also, snapper, served on a bed of black beans salsa.All in all it was a wonderful experience, and, we surely will be going back.

    Very very upset. I made a reservation for outside seating. When I got to the restaurant they said they could not seat us outside because when I made the reservation they were out of outdoor tables so it switched to inside. My friend was very upset as we purposely made an outside Reservation as she had just arrived from New York and wanted the outdoors. When I said something to the hostess she looked at me with a blank face. Just stared. I put my hand around her face and she said oh I fell asleep. Huh????? Nothing could be done. The food was fair. I asked for water no lemon. But got lemon. The fish was supposed to be blackened but was not. We never saw her again.

    We always enjoy the Banana Boat and Easter Sunday was no different. I had the Crab Eggs Benedict & my husband had the Brioche French Toast. Both were delicious! I am always leery when ordering crab cakes but these were scrumptious! Loads of crabmeat & cooked to crispy perfection! I will definitely order turn again! Our server was very attentive & pleasant. It is always a good time at the Banana Boat!
