We went after viewing the menu on line but found that the menu had been "reduced" and the dishes we came for were not available. We had a 5:30 reservation and we were the second table filled, yet we were told that the special was sold out and two of the five draft beers on the drinks menu were not available. Our server was embarrassed and we can't hold him responsible but it almost became comical. After we found an entree of redfish. We were told it would be red snapper and then later that it was actually salmon. I guess it's all red, right?

Have been going to this restaurant for years and have enjoyed it each time. Although the food was good I was disappointed with the new menu which was limited with nothing special to have. Pam our server was great.

Crispy Artichoke app was 6 small breaded/deep-fried chunks of artichoke hearts with the same amt of crab meat down the center. It was priced at $15. WAY over-priced. Our order of fried shrimp arrived cold, shrimp were not seasoned; bland and over-breaded. We had been to this restaurant a few years ago and it was amazing. I’m not sure what happened. Will not return, and will not recommend.

It's always a great time at Nonno Tony's & we love their freshly made Brick Oven Pizza. The only brick oven pizza on the Pier!

The server brings complimentary bread & olive oil to the table at the start. Appetizer and dinner came a little too quickly together but on the plus side, not a long wait for food. My husband really enjoyed our Seafood Sensation Alfredo. I didn't care for it but it was just my preference because of the lobster taste.

We had a large group and they seated us in a private room so we could visit. Our server, Crystal, was outstanding. The appetizers, salads and meals were delicious. Will definitely be back!

Good for a quick bite. Not terribly busy when we were there but the food was good and the view was pretty.

Jerry our waiter was fabulous. You'll be lucky to get him. Gumbo was bad. Shrimp cocktail was excellent.

A group of 11 ladies met here for our monthly luncheon get together. The food was very good and the service was, too. The servers made us feel very welcome and catered to all our wishes. Surprisingly, it wasn’t at all crowded on a Monday lunchtime.

The service was excellent. The bartender produces wonderful Mojitos! The food was excellent and there was plenty in one serving for us to split. Somewhat spicy but not overly so. The manager is great!

Great food. Good lunch prices. We al left full and happy. Service was slow, but I think was just a slow kind of day.
