Beautiful day on the water. Arrived at 2:30pm. Had pretty good service. Crab cakes were actually crab balls. Unusual but good. Grouper with risotto was outstanding. Hush puppies not typical corn meal based. Not sure I would order again. Overall experience was very good. Would definitely recommend and plan a return visit even though it’s an hour from my home.

Love being outdoors, the house-smoked dishes, and the music, but this time we were seated too close to the band. Would have stayed for dessert and an after-dinner drink but were tired of yelling, so went elsewhere for ice cream.

The beautiful surroundings and ambience was enjoyed less due to the music/band that was far too loud.

Consistently good food, good service and how nice to be able to make a reservation and walk right to your table. Staff also has masks and shields on and there is plexiglass up so feel very safe there as well! Would definitely recommend

We go here often, the food this time was ok, the service was slow. Took us over a hour to get our food and forget about ordering another drink. Will still go back but was disappointed this time

We had a nice dinner while the sun was setting. We went early so we could finish before the band started playing since when were there the week before the band was too loud.

The red wine is kept too cold!

One of the best views in the area. The food is good but the drinks are very high priced. My wife had a mojeto in a small plastic cup with a ton of ice for over $9. A plastic cup of draft beer close to $7

The food was good (garlic mashed potatoes were delicious) but our waiter left a lot to be desired:
-when asked to bring water to our party of 4, he brought 2 glasses
-wait time between ordering drinks and getting them was way too long
-we ordered a carafe of wine which he told us was $12; however, I believe it was $18 - he apologized for quoting the Happy Hour price but we had already ordered the one and made up our minds that we wanted two prior to knowing the correct price
-each couple shared a meal; we asked for extra plates and never received them
-he seemed very distracted but was polite

We did appreciate the spaced-seating and the fact that all waitstaff were wearing masks.

We usually eat at this restaurant several times each spring. However, this time the food was not as good as in the past. We both had hamburgers and they tasted very bland. The service was very good and the view is spectacular.

Josh was such a great waiter! He moved us when he saw we didn’t have enough room and he was so attentive. He even ran out to the entrance to say goodbye and thank us for coming! Excellent guest service and excellent food!

We have eaten there many times before, so we wanted to take two out of town guests there for dinner. It has a wonderful outdoor eating area by the water. It turned out to be a total mess. Our friends did not get their food when we got ours, then one got a salad no entre, no vegetable, the other one got fish no salad no vegetable, and actually was given the wrong fish. We had to end up talking to the manager, he was very nice, he took off their bill. The waitress was great, it wasn't her fault. It was a major let down to us since we wanted it to be nice for our friends.

We came back here within 2 weeks of our first visit because we had such a great first experience. This time the food was still awesome and the wait staff very nice. We had a situation where we didn’t all get our entrees at the same time. One in our party didn’t have their meal until everyone else was done with their meals. However the manager more than made things right. We will be back.

3 out of 4 of our dinners were unsatisfactory. The side dishes were fine but the sandwiches were not. The manager reduced the charges for those 3 sandwiches by 50%. My first time there so it may have been just a bad night. Two of the people in our party had eaten there several times and said the food was always acceptable.

A great place to relax by the water. The steamed mussels were very good & plentiful. Also, the peel & eat shrimp were large & very tasty. Cesar salad was just O.K. nothing special & the fried onion rings were soggy. The menu is a little pricey but that can be expected when you dine by the water.

If you want a beautiful setting on the water, this is it. Great for sunsets. We had a table far enough from the band that you could still communicate and not have to shout. The appetizers and main meals were excellent. The service was great. My only complaint is that since it was a table outside near the fence, there must have been a septic issue on the other side of the fence. We would get a whiff of some septic odor every so often. We have sat in that area 2 other times and never had a problem. Overall a great place to have a wonderful meal with friends.
