    The food and service was great. You can’t beat outdoor dining on the intercostal. Plus the live music on the deck adds to the experience.

    The menu is limited & they make absolutely no substitutions or alterations to the menu - it made it hard to get what we wanted, since there were not a lot of options to start with. Would have given more stars if they let you modify a little. Probably won’t go back - hear - NO way more than Yes. No bread with dinner, No changes, No substitutions- lots of No’s at this place.

    Everything would have been a 5 had it not been for the terribly loud generic country/rock music blaring from the hotel next door. We had chosen to sit on the outdoor patio and regretted it the minute the “band” started playing.

    Food, service and atmosphere were spot on! Only negative thing I would have to say is the chairs are not very comfy. But I would deal with them again as everything else was great!

    The food was delicious, and the waitress was excellent. There was a large table near us, and the people were very loud, but besides that, it was a wonderful experience. We plan to go bank again soon.

    I absolutely love this restaurant!! The food and service is amazing! The only problem is that you recently changed all of your seating and those of us that are on the heavier side can not fit in your chairs. I call and request larger seats but it’s embarrassing. It would be great if you changed your chairs again please!!

    Our meal was outstanding! It’s quite a charming restaurant on the Intracoastal . Our server was quite a character. It seemed as if he was extremely busy because he would tell us the specials and before we could even ask a question, he was gone! Poof! It was awkward trying to track him down to ask him anything. I’m going to chalk it up to difficulty finding help these days. Perhaps he was just extremely busy. We would still definitely go back for another visit!

    We had reservations for 2 at 7pm and arrived about 15 minutes early but were seated right away. The table was a nice cozy table for 2 outside overlooking the pool area. The waitress was very nice and very efficient. The food arrived quickly and hot. The quality and flavor of the food was very good. The prices were a little high but for the time of the year and location I guess it should be expected. The noise level was a bit excessive due to some larger groups and live music down below. Overall it was a pleasant experience and we will be back.

    We booked this restaurant on open table, when we got to the restaurant they had a fixed menu a very expensive set menu. I feel we should have been told this before booking. And you absolutely could not share a plate. But the food and drinks were good but would have loved to eat off there regular menu.

    we made reservations in November for New Years Eve, we specifically chose this restaurant because of the large variety on the menu. No one ever mentioned that there would be a very limited menu that night, and I actually spoke to them on two other occations. One of the persons in our group does not eat seafood or fish and there were no choices for her. What the rest of us had was quite tastey and the specialty cocktails were also fun.

    We have eaten at the Rusty Hook several times and we are never disappointed. I love the Brussels sprouts app. I had the pork shank last night and it was fall off the bone delicious. My wife had ribs and Mom had the snapper. Dad ordered the pork porterhouse and cleaned his plate.
