    We made a reservation originally for 8 on the app. On the day of the reservation at noon I called letting them know we were coming to play trivia tonight and that we had 4 more people who would like to come with us. I asked if we could update the reservation to 12 or if they could seat a table of 4 next to our reserved table of 8 and the person I spoke with said absolutely we can get you all together no problem. I received the updated reservation email of 12 from open table. When we arrived at the restaurant the manager told us he couldn’t accommodate us despite us having a reservation. He continually complained about people coming for trivia and how it’s more of a pain then what it’s worth. He was unhelpful and very rude. Outside of him…the servers and bartender were wonderful. One of the servers saw our situation and said let me make something happen…he pulled out a table from the back, rounded up stools and chairs and made a space for us. He went above and beyond! I wish I could remember his name but we will only be back because of him and our wonderful server!

    Made reservations for Valentine's Dinner. Arrived at 5:54pm for our 6:15pm reservation. We're seated right away and continued to sit until 6:15pm while not a single person said a word to us. "We will be right with you", "May I get you something to drink", nothing. As we got up to leave, a waitress then asked if anyone had helped us, to which we replied " no". She told the manager we were leaving. I explained that we sat for over 20 minutes without been being acknowledged. He apologized, but we were already leaving. Ended up at Applebee's since everyone and everything else was booked.

    Overall, this is definitely a place we would come back to again. Realizing that we dined on Valentine's night, the service was a little slow, but not a deal breaker. Really good food in a great locale.

    Was not expecting much and it was less than that. Food came after 45 minute wait. We had to ask for it. Food is Sysco packaged goods. Not fresh fish as advertised. Both fish meals overcooked. Nice location. Good for a beer and maybe an appetizer. At most.

    Enjoyed the atmosphere at Caddy’s and the food (Fish & Chips) was pretty good but usually can’t go wrong with fried food! The 4 star instead of 5 was the service. Took quite a long time to come to our table to see what we wanted; she first took drink order and it took forever before they came. Then took food order which took a long time to get as well. BUT the server was very pleasant! I think they just needed more servers as it was fairly busy. We would return to Caddy’s and just be prepared for the wait!

    We made reservations and I called an hour before to make sure since we were a party of 15. We received drinks nearly an hour after sitting. When ordering we were told the kitchen was understaffed and it would be over an hour to receive food. We unfortunately had to cancel orders because we had children and it was getting late. I wish they would have told us that information when I had called and would have saved us time. I hope they can get appropriately staffed as the place has more potential.

    6:30 Reservation on Open Table, Hostess station had no record, but seated us appropriately. Table still dirty from previous sitting, approximately half the tables open. Waitress wiped down table and was pleasant. Drinks were slow to come out, and dinner took a very long time. Once food came out, we were informed that one entry was "out, didn't anyone tell you?" The order that did arrive was awful as it had no appearance as to what was stated or shown on the menu. The manager was at the next table claiming they had a busy day and they hadn't ordered enough food! Why are you seating people then? We sent back the food and asked for the check for the drinks and one appetizer we had had, noting the second drink order never showed up (were there 90 min.). The girl who delivered the food, and to who we returned the food and requested the check, spoke to our waitress, pointing to us to explain. The waitress never came back to our table! We literally sat there for 20+ minutes, and no waitress was carrying more than two tables at this point. It simply wasn't that busy. Saturday night at 6:30 and you are out of food? My wife and I have worked in the bartending and waitressing trade in our younger years, and we waited an exceptionally long time as we did not want the waitress to get stiffed on our tab. No one came back or delivered a bill! We eventually left, slowly, shaking our heads. It was like no one wanted to deal with the problem, and we were not mean or rude about anything! Such a shame that this was such an awful experience in the end.

    Loved the ambience. Caught a beautiful sunset. The food was good. The service was good and the manager was visible, which was a good thing because the kitchen was having a hard time getting food out in a timely fashion. Our server was engaged and fun. We would definitely go back!

    First time here. Waited 23 minutes at our table and our server didn’t come. After about 15 min, a server came and told us that our server would be right over and no one came. Three servers made eye contact with us but no one claimed us. Cool looking spot with a chill beach vibe but the service needs to get its act together

    We were seated right away, but after 15 minutes we finally went to the bar to ask if we even had a server. When we did order, they were out of their specialty drinks and food came cold. Best part of the dinner was the sunset!

    We normally go to the beach for Christmas but since it was going to rain we decided to stay in town and go to Caddy's as we would be under cover. We sat at the bar and Melissa was awesome! she was very personable and we never waited for anything. We enjoyed out day!

    We ate on the deck area parallel to the river. The view was very nice, and the noise level was low enough for easy conversation. Our server, Michelle, was friendly, relaxed, and attentive without being in the least disruptive. Our food arrived hot from the kitchen and was exactly what we'd ordered. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch by the water before continuing our trip.

    The food took over an hour and came out cold. The service was fine, the server came around to check on us a few times and was prompt. However, the food took over an hour to come out and when it finally got to our table was room temperate and cold. I want to like this place because it is a fun vacation atmosphere but that is probably the only thing that would bring me back.

    It took one hour for appetizers to show up. Once the main meals finally arrived, one was missing the kettle chips, one was completely wrong, and two were cold. The meal that was wrong was given to eat in the meantime, which was also very cold and dry. There was no incentive given to make us want to eat there again. If this place wasn’t on the water, it would be out of business.

    Was very nice sitting on the patio. The food was delicious. Love that they offer the Impossible burger as a substitute for us plant-based people. We used to go to Whiskey Joe's but they took the plant-based burger off of their menu so they don't have anything I can eat there anymore.

    All in all very good! We came with two kiddos and they ate well which is a challenge more often than not! I enjoyed my shrimp and if course the chicken fingers were a hit. Grouper sandwich was good. The calamari was not especially special but the only thing that wasn’t really good was the tropical bbq boneless wings:( Also the drinks in souvenir cups (our fault for falling into the tourist trap!) were overpriced, not much flavor or alcohol lol more of either would have been better lol

    Bartender was only highlight, we each had two drinks , drinks were good. Ordered Peal and eat shrimp as appetizer, burger medium rare with house chips, and street corn as mains. Everything came out at same time. Would have been nice to eat the appetizer and then dinner. My burger was well done and the house chips were soggy as if they were yesterdays. Street corn was boiled and over cooked. Tasted like it was boiled yesterday and just warmed in microwave before toppings added. Bathrooms were very smelly and dirty. Dinner and drinks came to $92.00 before tip! Do not waste your $$$ here,. They are missing out here as the location and view are amazing. Too many good bar & Grills around town so we will not be back here-EVER
