Food is excellent, been several times. Love being on the water. Service is excellent as well.
Bands are loud. Not great place to hang and talk unless you are inside.
Fun place for easy dinning. Great water view and friendly staff. Check the restaurant's web site to see if there is live music and when. If there is a band be aware you can not have a conversation as the sound level is that high. So high it may hurt your ears as it did mine.
Banana Boat, one of my favorite restaurants has it all. Great food, great energy, a great view, good service and good LOUD music (on weekends). Dine indoors if the music is too loud but you'll miss the dockside atmosphere and the view of the boats and opening and closing of the bridge over the inter coastal waterway. My favorite dishes are the humongous fish sandwich, the luscious New England chowder and the crispy coconut shrimp. Their desserts at large and luscious especially the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich and the new frozen banana split.
I love the Banana Boat! It’s always good and I love the Poke Tuna. I enjoy it for all occasions. It’s close and convenient. Service is always good and great view. It was a bit cold so don’t forget to bring a sweater for inside.
If you aren’t there for the band and the noise it isn’t worth it
Went on Sunday night (last week) and requested outside seating. Did not know there was live music..... actually there wasn't music. It was just a lot of loud offkey screaming. Food was good, service was excellent....could not hear myself think let alone hear anything anyone else at the table was saying. Also, the bugs were so bad that I am still itching from their bites almost a week later
Waitress was less than friendly!
It was my birthday so it was just great celebrating with my kids! Love eating on the water.
Music near bar way too loud so we moved to a far corner inside. Otherwise good.
Had a special time on Thanksgiving when family plans fell through due to illness. Other patrons very thoughtful in welcoming us to the bar where we had our meal. Special thanks to servers Celeste and Kayla.... you gals were great!
Great atmosphere overlooking the intercoastal.... yummy drinks & good food. A place to go Eat, Drink & Be Merry
server was very helpful in advising which dishes would do well for sharing & suggesting a reasonable white wine for my friend service was good but main dish was served before we finished the appetizer was taken back and served later was hot & tasty
Great place for outdoor dining whether lunch with friends or coworkers! Good food - nice view- this place always has a smile to greet you!
Lunched on the outside deck. Really like the remodel! Flatbreads were delicious! Service was very attentive.
A bit overpriced but probably because of the view and it was “in season.” I will go back.
It is so nice to eat outside at Banana Boat. See you on Thanksgiving for turkey dinner
Great food. One of the best char grilled burgers around. Great location on the intracoastal. We've been going here often for years.
Remodel makes it more perfect than ever - friendly staff, excellent service and great ambiance - outside dining is spectacular.
Great location had dinner outside and it was comfortable and quite
Food was delivered timely and was tasty
Had tuna tacos and this was outstay
Water glasses are to small and because of eating outdoors need to get lots of ice
Food service good. Music was extremely loud. If we would have sat closer to music we would have left
Perfect day for brunch on Sunday. We will go back and bring friends
We went to celebrate their 40th anniversary and take advantage of bargain deals! House wine was 40% off and there were specials off the charts. We started with oysters and clams casino. Both very fresh and delicious. We all chose a stuffed lobster which was a decent portion. I chose a house salad as a side and it was large enough to be shared by 3 of us. Live music and the opportunity to dance made it a great night.
Our favorite local spot ♡ Must try the Banana Cream Pie! To die for!
We had the special and while the fish was all fried it was done extremely well. Crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. The shrimp calamari and fish were great...not as crazy about lobster nuggets. Still it was good value.
The Banana Boat never disappoints. I have been a patron for decades. It checks off a lot of boxes for fabulous food and fun and music and atmosphere. But I appreciate the consistancy of great food the most. They understand how to run a restaurant. There are other waterfront options in South Florida, some are a mostly just that....waterfront. Awful food or service, but not the Banana Boat. Their staff is friendly and welcoming. A plus in a sometimes testy culture (sorry I am a Southerner that appreciates polite kindness) You always go away happy.....
WE SAT ON THE PATIO AND THE MUSIC WAS SO HORRIBLE LOUD THAT IF WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO
TALK AND WE COULD'NT WAIT TO EAT AND PAID AND GET OUT OUT THERE. NO COMPLAINS AS FOR THE FOOD AND SERVICE.
Great music and great surprise Caribbean band. Fish over cooked
We had a fun waitress Ashley .
It was a wonderful evening celebrating mine and my brothers birthday and also Banana Boat was celebrating their 40th Anniversary lots of fun great music and great food
Great place to bring visitors since it's on the intracoastal -- might see a manatee if you're lucky (as we were one time). Great salads (huge!). I had the lobster roll -- had to take some of the meat out as it was so full. Really good, not overly prepared with mayo. Hubby loves the fish/chips -- the small is more than adequate. This time he had the poo-poo platter which is large enough for 2 to share.
One caveat. Sitting on the deck at night with the live music from Two Georges makes for a loud evening and difficult to have a conversation.
Great food great environment great staff
Always enjoy our time here when we come into town!
ALWAY HAVE A GREAT MEAL AGREAT TIME
AND TERRIFIC SERVICE.
FUN PLACE TO BE.
Friendly service and delicious food ...band was playing great music
Food and service was excellent but the music outside is way too loud. Our ears hurt and we had to move inside. I am sure we were not the only ones who thought so.
Birthday - Very attentive and professional staff. Would have no hesitation to return.
While the food was good your portions have gotten skimpier. If I took two blinks my salmon would disappear. My husband ordered the steak on the skewers. One, there were no skewers and two, his portion was likewise skimpy. Only our granddaughter's fish and chips was adequate.
We sat at a table in the bar, and it was so noisy we could not hear each other.
Great fun. Food excellent. Service friendly and efficient.
Super Essen. Tolle Lage. Wir kommen wieder.
When we are in the area we try to get to the Banana Boat Restaurant. We usually go for lunch, however this time we went with a group of friends for dinner. It was very loud and difficult to have a conversation. The service and food were good.
other than finding it difficult to have a conversation, terrific!
I feel that there should be a separate smoking area. the music was also a bit too loud, although entertaining
