Love sitting outside on the water and watching the boats go by. The food was delicious and large portions. We had and shared Lobster roll, crab cake BlT avocado sandwich , calamari app and key lime pie. Sweet potato fries delicious.

Ann was amazing. She was spot on with service and table touched at the perfect times. Delightful and helpful. My father was visiting from out of town and she took photos for us with the moon in the background. Told us her name and while we tried to pronounce it we had a good laugh and said Ann it is. 🤣. She’s from Thailand. We didn’t feel rushed. Got a great table like I requested and had a wonderful evening. Great food and even better service.

I made a reservation for 7:15 for 4. When I got to the restaurant they said it was for 8:15 so apparently someone changed my reservation to suit the restaurants needs. Luckily I had my confirmation email showing I had made it for 7:15. I didn’t appreciate it as we had company from out of town and I made the reservation a week or so in advance. After being seated 20 minutes later everything turned out fine.

Awesome outdoor dining along the canal! There was a band playing with a lot of positive energy. I would definitely recommend the coconut shrimp!

Nice location on the Intracostal Waterway. Food was good pub style fare. Service was good. Outdoor seating seemed safe. The bar areas were crowded with few if any patrons wearing masks.

If you are looking for a restaurant that offers a great inter-coastal view, lots of bustling activity with boats and jetski's passing you, quality and professional service, tables that are not close to each other, and good food . . . this is the place. It's not fancy or pretentious; but you will leave with a smile. Plenty of outdoor seating.

Banana Boat is a prime spot on the intracoastal waterway overlooking the preserve on Manalapan Island. Banana Boat has excellent food, especially their seafood selections, and terrific service. It has been a favorite spot for us since 1978!

The food was not great. It was cold and you don’t get very much for the price. I wouldn’t recommend dinner menu. I would stick with sandwiches or salad.
It is very casual so I don’t recommend fancy outfit. Outside dining is like a bar atmosphere. Only waitstaff wore face masks. Very crowded and no social distancing.

Dinner and the service was great. Unfortunately there was a very loud band at Two Georges next door which made it hard to talk. Also a very loud table of about 10 next to us.

Our Banana Boat experiences are always fantastic. In particular, we were concerned about seating since our friend is handicapped. When we arrived everything about the table reserved for us was perfect. Not always in other restaurants have our concerns been addressed with such care.

As usual you didn't disappoint. Our table was waiting and was exactly what we asked for because we were dining with a friend who is handicapped. The service and the food were excellent. There is no place where i feel improvement is needed. Thank you for a beautiful Valentine's Day.
