Not especially thrilled. First time visit but think server and food wasn’t too great. Maybe another time will be better.

We had a large party for a family birthday dinner. The hosts accommodated us at a wonderful table, and our server was efficient and so friendly. Sunset was beautiful! All around a great experience.

Beautiful evening to eat outside! It was a little chilly but all good. We had friends from out of town and they loved it.

Place was crowded , so service was a little slow. Was seated at requested table . Food came out late but Manager gave small discount which was appreciated . Server was very nice but slammed. Nice setting on the water. Valet parking a must. Food was average.
Would return but just for drinks and appetizers .
Was told over phone they would not accept same day reservations , went online and reserved a table anyway. That was a bit confusing .

Our appetizer was completely forgotten about and our dinner came out 30 minutes after we ordered...waiter only checked on us once. For being our first time there I do not think we will ever go back. Pretty disappointed after hearing about all the great reviews. We did not have the same experience.

We had visitors in from the frozen north, and sitting next to warm water in January with birds flying and waves rippling was a real treat for them. Thank you.

On vacation - we dined on the deck and it was nice although the birds would swarm the tables next to us once people got up to leave. We also wanted to check out the beach side when leaving but we were kind of upset to find out it was $5 cover charge per person at 1pm on a Sunday (???) even though we just paid over $130 at the restaurant side we weren’t allowed in, so we went someplace else instead...

We will probably never go there again. The server was very pleasant, no quarrels there. Only because it was on the water did it have any appeal. If you decide to go there, the first thing you'll face is having to pay for valet, there is no other parking. The parking attendant was flat out rude when he told us about parking. The dish I ordered was the seafood sampler and there was more breading than seafood, also very greasy. Hubby ordered the hamburger and it was nothing out of the ordinary but at least the server told him to get it medium rare so that it came out medium, which it did. One visit was all it took to decide we will not be back. If you like greasy food, this is the place.

Our experience was less than positive unfortunately. We originally wanted to eat in the bar area (we enjoy the noise and crowd of a bar). There were maybe 15 people in the bar. The football game was turned up so loud we couldn’t even hear the bartender. We switched to a table.
Place wasn’t busy at all. We ordered wings and drinks prior to our main course. Our wing order took 26 minutes to arrive and arrived literally cold after we asked another server to Track it down. When I say cold, I mean room temperature. We immediately asked they be canceled.
Next came our meals which miraculously were ready right away after the wing experience despite being intentionally ordered 15 minutes after the wings. These meals too were Luke warm at best. French fries were room temp, burger was luke warm. Jambalaya was the other plate and was also Luke warm.
Server took wings off our bill and offered two free drinks which we accepted. No manager ever came over, everything handled by our server. Less than positive experience

beach area was nice. we really wanted deck but there was no available tables we were told, when I called catering the events girl was on vacation and returned the day before we wanted to go so i just held a table. Maybe if the events person is out another person should step in and handle in her absence. thanks,

I was very surprised to be charged $5 to valet park the car. So the experienced started off on the wrong foot.

We were seated at a table with a beautiful view of the bay. Our server was very attentive and informative. My wife had the grouper and I had the jambalaya. Both dishes were excellent. $25 for the grouper and well worth it.

Great spot to watch the sunset and have a very good meal.

The food was delicious. It took awhile for the waitress to take our order. The restaurant was not that busy. But once she came to the table, she was very nice.

If you are looking for the “ideal” Florida dinner with a view, this is the place. I grew up here in FL so it’s a bit touristy for me, but the food was decent and the view at Sunset was stunning. Our appetizer came out with our main course, which was a little overwhelming but it was all tasty. I probably won’t go back, it was a good experience, and I would recommend it to people who have come to FL to visit.

Hostess was busy cashiering a customer and didn’t acknowledge us walking in until was ask to be help. A bit annoying she said be right with you. We had reservations and was seated finally. We sat there for quite a while with several waiters & waitresses walked pass our table and didn’t say a word to us. No water, no hello, nothing. Hostess seated another customers table next to us still no service until we had to ask. Very bad sign of service. The place was not that busy cause I can see at least 2-3 employees chatting & laughing with each other at register. Anyway, Britney the server was fine, food is good. Experience wasn’t great! My son had dropped his AirPods there at table and didn’t realized till we left. We called the restaurant and was put on hold for more than 15mins. We had to call back on another phone and was again put on hold for them to try to find my son’s AirPods. Needless to say they couldn’t find it ...& then was told to have our name and number if they find it. Doubted and annoyed how from one bad service to even more bad service via phone call. Most likely not coming back for a while! Had to share our experience to hopefully your management will improve for other customers.

We were seated at a table on the patio close to the bar and waited 25 + minutes for service. I flagged down a server 20 minutes and told the bartender will take care of you another 10 minutes and I flagged the bartender down once she appeared. She stated I will be right over. Mean while tables next and across from us getting service from other servers. ???

Fun casual atmosphere. It was late so we were not able to see the sunset. We were indoors watching the world series which was perfect place to watch, but not for a romantic date. Food was ok. Mussell were over done which I like but most people do not. Root beer was flat. One of plates were charged $4 extra after it was charged twice at first. The outdoors looks fun. There was a band and a firepit.
