The onion crusted grouper is always very good and it’s one reason we go there.

Had a reservation, arrived on time and seated immediately. Sever was attenuative and made good recommendations. Mussels were cooked exactly right; we had two different fish dishes, both cooked spot on. Only negative was the noise level, floors are wood and reflect sound, there were two large groups (8 adults) and both were uncomfortably loud such that my Wife had to remove her hearing aids to be comfortable. Our first visit in over ten years, we will return.

We had a wonderful meal at this delightful restaurant. The server was helpful without being pushy. He recommended a delicious wine. Our meal was outstanding...,prepared perfectly and displayed with class. We wish we lived closer so we could visit more often. The only caveat was it is a bit pricey.

I would recommend this restaurant to a friend with reservations. The food was quite good, but the noise level is unpleasant and makes quiet conversation nearly impossible. This is not the place for a romantic dinner date. Service was spotty even though the restaurant was not especially busy. When we arrived with a 6:30 reservation for two, we stood at the reception desk for several minutes before our presence was acknowledged and several more before the hostess showed up to seat us. Then we waited several more minutes before a server showed up to take our orders. Once he showed up, the server was professional, attentive and helpful until we left. This restaurant has the potential to be a real winner: The food is very good, but the owner needs to mitigate the noise and improve the supervision of the dinning room.

Dear Jim, As the owner & hostess Friday. I took the liberty of reviewing the details of your visit. You arrived over 15 minutes early for your 6:30 reservation. Unfortunately, when you arrived I was busy attending to the 6:15 reservations & could not seat you ahead of them. I did seat you at 6:22 and informed you that since you were early it make take the server a few minutes to visit your table. I am glad you enjoyed the food & apologize for the noise level. We hope to see you again.

We recently dined here for the first time. Our waiter seemed a bit hurried and a little pushy on what he recommends. We opted for the onion crusted grouper which is their signature dish, and grilled shrimp with a side of grits. Both dishes were delicious. You have to park behind the restaurant. The area is small and you have to back out of the lot. Make a reservation as the restaurant is small.

The Pompano fish was delicious!! Green beans overcooked and too much salt. Restaurant had an odd smell that was annoying. I like that they carry several fish choices...

A friend who lives in Melbourne suggested this for dinner while I was in town. Dinner was FANTASTIC! I had to have the Grouper dinner they are known for. Now I have to get back to Florida to try other specials and menu items that also looked great.

The food and service were outstanding. And when my Dad did not enjoy the sauce on his entree, they quickly replaced it sans sauce, which was very accommodating. I will be back to this restaurant for sure!

Traveling for a weekend away. Heard good things about this place from friends and it was close to where we were staying. Place was not crowded and we told them we had an open table reservation. (Later got an e mail from open table saying we were a no show). Our waitress was very nice and described and recommended menu items. Not being a big seafood fan I ordered the onion crusted chicken. When the order arrived she had mistakenly put in onion crusted fish, which I did not want. She apologized and offered a salad or soup while I waited. When the chicken finally came it was undercooked and actually pink in the thickest part.

My wife’s fish was good and the sides for both meals were excellent. The service was friendly. Perhaps they were having an off night, but for me it was not a great dining experience.

We have had dinner here several times and love it every time. So much thought has gone into their menu and everything is prepared perfectly. They have an outstanding wine selection and know what pairs well with their menu. This is another of our hidden Brevard gems.

We were in town for a couple days on vacation and we found this place quickly after we left another popular seafood restaurant that only had 2 seafood dish on the menu. This place is located at the back of a building off a major street and it has its own parking area. We waited almost 15 min even though we have reservation and the place was not too full. We ordered spicy shrimp for appetizer, Onion crusted grouper and snapper for the main course which were all wonderful. The only downside was the place is a little dated. Price of food and wine were reasonable.

Food was delish! Got the onion-encrusted grouper. Wonderful service. Just ended up getting quite loud. Small place but filled up fast. Maybe there needs to be something to absorb all the sounds in that room? I would go back. Pricey but so so yummy.
