It was a perfect evening except the Swordfish was overcooked and we had to send it back. Our waitress was outstanding and took care of it right away. We all felt social distanced and safe during the Covid lockdown. I would highly recommend.

We were leary of eating indoors but the spacing of the tables was excellent and there wasn't anyone sitting near us. The food is always delicious at Banana Boat. We had a fantastic waitress. I didn't get her name or I would give her a 5* review.

We were there for lunch. The noise level was way too high, making practically shouting a necessity to be heard. A lot of the noise was from the fans which they said they could not turn off.
The food was excellent though pretty high for lunch.

The food was good and hot, wine and beer nice and cold. Waitress very prompt and polite. The drawback was we were seated next to a noisy plastic wind barrier on a very windy day. It kept banging against the railing and totally blocked the view. We should have asked for a seat change. I requested outside and this really wasn’t satisfactory

My husband and I as well as many of our family and friends have frequented Banana Boat dozens and dozens of times. We live close so we have walked, driven, ridden and boated there. I have to say when we arrived last Wednesday night and realized my husband had forgotten his mask, we were extremely disappointed in the restaurant hostesses response when we asked if they had any paper masks on-site, so we could walk through and sit down for our dinner and drinks.... again. When I kindly asked for a mask I was informed quite rudely that it would cost $2.00......WHAT? I’m confused Banana Boat! We have spent many thousands of dollars combined and you want to charge for a mask.... so we can come in and give you MORE of our money and patronage?? We made a conscious decision that night to take a very big break from this establishment. There are so many wonderful options in and around the area that are also on the water. We will be patronizing them instead!

One of the best restaurant to go on the Inter Coastal waterway. People are great! Very pleasant and always there when you need something. Food is delicious I’m a big fan of the Mahi Tacos! Great Happy Hour too. A must have is the Banana Boat Pie Cake. Out of this world , especially if you love coconut, white chocolate, homemade whipped cream and some bananas, this is for you!👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼❤️❤️❤️

As always atmosphere is the best as is the food. I was very disappointed when I was told that the cocktail I wanted was not allowed to be served in a pint glass I was requesting. Waitress told me a server can be fired for serving anything other then beer in that glass. Totally unacceptable
The photo listed is not the cocktail I was referring to. This is from another night

My husband had very good fish and chips, and I had the lobster roll, which I'd had before at Banana Boat - always fresh and delicious. It was great sitting outside by the water.
