    We had a great lunch at Banana Boat yesterday. My husband and I both tried things from the new menu--crab cake melt and seafood Cobb. Both were very good. We also really appreciated our server, Drew. He did a great job with our special requests.

    We were really upset that the ribs were taken off the menu. My daughter looks forward to the ribs on the children’s menu. This change resulted in tears. Maybe take grilled cheese off the menu and bring back the ribs!!

    Family dinner after a day of horse showing at WEF. Nice menu with delicious food. Waterfront ambience was lovely however we found the experience hampered with too much noise created by the diners and music from the sound system competing with conversation.

    Disappointing meal. Looked like someone took a dish rag and tried to wipe the sauce off the plate. The smear wasn’t like the sauce was spread so you could dip your swordfish in it. It literally looked like the plate had been scraped as you would before putting in the dishwasher.

    Everything was very good. The service quality of food were great. The only complaint I have is the limited selections of sparkling wine. There were two offerings for low end sparkling wine and one expensive champagne. It would be nice to have a choice of five versus three with such a jump from low end to high.

    Used to be one of my favorite places to go out for lunch and dinner when visiting the WPB area. Was always great for a solid meal, nice ambience and who can argue with drinks by the water. This last time, the food was very mixed and the service was pretty mediocre. Mom and dad had some basics that were good - fish and chips and a burger. I had swordfish that was tasteless. Their conch soup is usually really good but also, not a lot going on. Waiter was clearly interested in being somewhere else. He really didn't focus on providing quality service. I miss the good old days of Banana Boat wait staff.

    Active Friday night with canned music. Hopping adult bar scene. Menu is relatively small and uninspiring. Quality and flavor of the food is very good as is the service. Valet parking.
