We were meeting family for dinner and were looking forward to spending time. It was far too loud with the music blasting away. The food was great and the service was excellent.

Usually one of our favorite places but we requested a table for two by a window which was denied even though we had a reservation.
Put in the large closed in room and it was sooo noisy you could not hear each other talk..
Wasn’t thinking peak season worst time to try to get a nice meal out.
Food was great but atmosphere & noise level horrible.

Clam chowder was delicious and onion soup great. Cuban sandwich was yummy, PuPu platter was great. Fans were on and it was a bit chilly. Liked the sampling of platter, nice assortment.

Cherisha was our waitress and she was dynamite!!!!! Food was less than expected. Not sure we will go back. They also did not check in my reservation with open table which caused me extra work

Did not stay. The only table available (reservation was made 3 days in advance) was next to an impossible loud band. We had to leave. They were quite unaccomodating.

We haven’t been here in a long time, but heard it was quite after extensive renovations. My husband was reluctant to come by boat as the dock space had not been very accommodating. We were able to dock next to a ladder that made it much easy to exit our boat especially since it was low tide.

We scored an outdoor table on a Saturday evening with a very popular band supplying live music! Who knew that the valet can not accommodate all the patrons....so word to the wise on such an evening. Food was good. We shared oysters and a Thai crispy shrimp to start. Entrees were seafood crepe, blackened mahi and a glazed swordfish. All were very good.

Food is good atmosphere is good service is good
The big problem is smoking on the outside deck it ruins the entire experience especially when all the shades are closed
It is definitely not the same inside

Seafood platter was good...the fish could have used some seasoning. Our server was very good. We were seated next to a table of ladies celebrating a birthday and it was extraordinarily noisy.
Our table was ready on time and the food delivery was fast.

Fun place on the inter coastal. You get what you pay for...our waitress was fair..seemed to be totally disinterested in serving us...had to ask others for refills , napkins etc
Food was pretty good, though spicy for little ones which she could have specified
Coconut shrimp salad had 4 shrimps on it but very small amount of salad ingredients.
Would I go back? Only if company was in town and wants to eat on the water.

We have eaten at the Banana Boat many times and have had many a celebration there too over the years, but we were very disappointed this past NYE. The entertainment was not worthy of a NYE celebration and the crowd it brought in. There were more intoxicated people there by 9:30PM than we have seen before. If we were aware of the entertainment that was going to perform prior to making reservations, we would have gone elsewhere. We won't even bring up the one young woman that ended up in the intercoastal about 11:30PM. The food and the service was very good as usually, but right after the ball dropped, we made a dash for the car.

Very disappointed! made a reservation because they had live music and wanted an outside table. Advised they would try when booking. When we got there we were seated inside by the bar area. Very noisy, could not see or hear band. Meal portions were small and no bread or salad with the meals. At one point the table almost tipped over, not level or secure. Left after entree. Planned on making a night of it with the band and all.

Not somewhere I would go for a holiday again. Prices and limited menu were not appealing. Drinks were weak and waitress over worked. I believe the price for the type of meals was the worst. I also found out later my credit card was over charged and then reversed which affects my credit. I do not believe we will return to this restaurant in the future.
