A little on the pricey side and portions skimpy. View was great. Easy valet parking. Service good. It is worth trying again and perhaps ordering something different. Ordered a seafood platter and I really thought it was very small portions. Wife ordered salmon bowl and she said the same.

Food was great, the service wasn’t so great we were constantly trying to flangers down a server and when we did they would say let me get your server. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we did get their attention.
We dined outdoors and it started to rain, they immediately lowered the curtains to prevent us from getting wet, the music was nice so was watching the people dancing and having a great time!

Nice location on the intercostal. Parking is easy in September. Probably not so easy in season.
They gave s pretty multilevel deck which is very pleasant if it’s not too hot.
The food is basic but well prepared. I recommend this restaurant highly.

We dine at Banana Boat often. Great view; good food and service. However, the last couple of visits, the fried calamari has been a big disappointment. Below average quality, very small, over-cooked and very dry.

Waited in long line for valet, only to get to the front and be told valet was full and we would have to pay for parking down the street. Almost didn’t make our reservation.

The food is good, the service is attentive however they always bring out your entree while you are still eating your appetizers. If you are not in a rush, wait to order your entree. When the band is playing the music is so loud you can not hear anything but them. That being said it’s a fun place to go with descent food

Not a good value. Too expensive for what you get. The drinks were much too expensive. It was not busy. Still was told would be seated at our reservation time, which was 5 minutes later. Waitress not very attentive. Have been going there for years. Will not go back.

I would say the food was just ok. I had the fish tacos and the fish was over cooked and did not have much flavor. The setting was beautiful. Go to this restaurant for the scenery but not the food. Server unresponsive.

We love this place but sitting outdoors was a nightmare. We had to wait a good 3/4 of an hour past our reservation time for the outdoor seating we had reserved & we were seated by the bridge where there was an infestation of bugs so we literally got eaten alive so much so that within 1/2 an hour we had to move inside & we’re still itching 3 days later!! Staff is wonderful & so is food but either bring your own if spray (they don’t have & legally say they can’t provide it), or stay inside!

I loved my locally caught mahi tacos but my brother’s medium rare steak was super fatty and way overcooked - there was no red left, and barely any pink and it was turning grey...We ordered dessert and it took longer to get dessert than it took to get our food and mine was wrong. The live music and the view still made the experience nice but the food was not as good as it used to be.
