It was packed but us having a reservation made it a smooth experience. The food, the hostess, atmosphere and the view was AMAZING.

Invited 6 coworkers to lunch. When making reservations in advance, called twice to request an outdoor table. They could not accommodate. Our party was seated indoors. Ordered several appetizers for the table and the waiter said there were no appetizer plates left. He would check outside to see if they had plates. Never brought plates, very disappointing.

Placed a reservation with open table since this location is popular to locals and tourist. Husband and I was able to be seated immediately and the server was amazing. I would recommend reserving your table especially on the weekend.

I love the location of this place. Has a really good view of the Bay and you can also catch sunset from here.
Food and drinks are very average here.
The tiki bar is the best part of the whole place.

Worst experience in years. $6 or more to park, if you get a spot. Price of food was more than double what it was worth. Dishes were not displayed well and food combinations mostly carbs. Sticky bench or wooden tables. Service couldn’t have been worse. No napkins, no flatware, no condiments, no water fill, no checkup after food came out. Food took over an hour to be served. Took another half hour for bill to come. This place went way down hill in the last few years. I was completely embarrassed because of the first time visitors I brought who just moved down to Fla. I’m certain they will never go back to this restaurant.

Our server was not very attentive. On three occasions we had to request cutlery, water napkins etc... Although the muscles & oyster appetizers were good, the main course (Shrimp & Grouper) were both dry and bland. Not impressed.

Good experience, it's been a few years since I was there but was a frequent diner several years ago. Service was very good, starting from free valet to check in to dining. Food is good, not outstanding but it's a beach side bar with great waterfront ambiance.

We specifically asked for outdoor seating because of Covid19 precautions. When we arrived, they only offered us a table inside, with a lot of people around. We had to decline, ordered takeout food and went on the beach nearby.
Food was very salty, and overall expensive for the quality.

Portions small...prices high. Chicken overdone...when mentioned to our server she stated she knew we were going to say something but they told her to bring it out anyway. Gator bites were tasty but small portion for the price. Island gumbo was delicious. Nice location on the water.

We made a reservation because we had showed up earlier in the day. Around 2:40 and there was a long wait. No big deal. We left. Made a reservation and then walked to enjoy the weather. Still a long line when we got there. We were acknowledged quickly. Gave our name and time for our reservation and we were ushered quickly to a table that was not yet clean and although wiped down in front of us (during a pandemic)a “ wipe down” was not enough. And as quickly as we were sat the hostess was gone. Given an option of where to sit would have been nice. A clean table that you are brought to would have been nice. An $8 drink in a shot glass unacceptable. Come to Maine. We give you what you pay for. Our waitress was sweet and friendly and made the experience worth the $88 tab. The dolphins swimming by was a treat. The overall atmosphere is clearly a tourist attraction and that is it. We walked down to the beach after. What a mess. To bad because it is prime real estate if it was run that way.

Went on a Monday night so it was steady but not super busy. We got served our appetizers with no silverware. So grilled oysters are setting on our table getting cold. They shortly brought over 1 fork and 2 spoons for 4 of us. Finally, they found clean forks as our salads were being delivered. How do you run out of clean silverware on a Monday at 6:00 pm??

Took over an hour and half to recieve our food. The gator bites were subpar and did not come with fried pickles like the menu said. Once we did get our entrees, the bread was as stale as croutons and most of the muscles in my seafood pasta were still closed. I'm only rating this place a 2/5 instead of a 1/5 because our waiter waved my pasta off the bill.

The food was really good. I had the rum chicken, generous portions. The drinks were also good. Parking was a nightmare on a Friday evening ! Also table behind us had six very loud people that periodically started cheering or screaming and it was very distracting.

The two servers who served us seemed pleasant. The drinks and food took forever. They were out of a requested whiskey. The server charged us for drink we did not order but she brought to table for us to try after we requested a vodka soda.
