    Run down restaurant with a beautiful view and food was just ok. The server was very nice. Best part of the experience was the view and the server.

    The band was good, the view was pretty. Parking is $6.00 with no validation for eating dinner and spending close to $100. There was no wine list, but she gave a few options, Clois duBois is a $10, bottle at the grocery. It used to be 3x the price at a restaurant we paid $50. I should have asked, rather than using an old rule of thumb estimate. The food was good, quantities were not large. I don’t think we will be back, we were celebrating a birthday so we were out several times last week celebrating. Lucky Lobster, Dunedin. Sacred Pepper Tampa, all were about the same price and we had much better value., portions and flavor. It’s a shame because it does have a great view and we enjoyed the band.

    Pretty spot but lots of sea gulls were bothering our group. Our server did not bring us silverware or napkins. When we left we said “thank you, good night” to the hostess. She didn’t look up from her cell phone to acknowledge us. The food was great! Steak and chicken tacos. Drinks were good too.

    Been here before for a pool party and loved it. Went for dinner and hated it. It’s a beautiful place on the water, but the server was terrible and we were given plastic silverware and plates and it all blew way into the water and we felt terrible. The food was served to us in Togo containers even though we dined in. Food took forever and came out cold. We had to go to the bar to check out and that was extremely annoying. Definitely wouldn’t recommend unless you’re going to the pool party they host or grabbing drinks and want a cute scenery.

    I was referred here by my hotel. I clearly was not in the ballpark for the ages of the regular attendees. Had to sit on the concrete pool edge or a tall top u less I wanted to rent an overpriced cabana. Felt like I wandered into spring break. Never saw so many thongs in one place other than a Victoria secret catalog. Will NOT return

    We waited about 10 minutes for our waitress to address our presence which was annoying as the restaurant was not busy. She took our order. It was about 15 minutes before she reappeared with my glass of wine which I had to clean the outside of the glass so I would not drip wine on my clothing. She did not have my partner’s beer as she confessed that she had forgotten what he wanted. While waiting for his drink for another good span of time, our meal was delivered. As we started our meals, our waitress looks at us as she is walking by and announces that they had run out of his beer, but she was going to bring him a “sample” of another beer. He told her not to bother at that point. Why she didn’t ask him what he would like to order instead, I don’t know. She eventually showed up all excited with a small sample of a beer. Our meal was ok, not outstanding. The portions were small. Definitely lacked ambiance. We will not go there ever again.

    We scheduled a date night. We mistakenly thought it was a romantic place. Although I called ahead of time to confirm what was appropriate attire, we were completely overdressed. The service was super slow and the food was okay. As a hangout to listen to music and watch the sunset, it would be great! As a date night, not so much.

    We waited 20 minutes after being seated to have our drink order taken by a waiter that didn’t know the menu. To his credit he’s a bartender that was called in last minute to serve (real professional). Salad was brought out and there was plastic from the cheese container in my salad. There were no arrangements made for outdoor seating in case of rain so we had the joy of dining at plastic tables inside. The food was for two, but you got a 3oz filet and 3 pieces of asparagus, let me tell you, I was full. 🙄 all in all I would never recommend this place.

    The only negative was my "smores" dessert, which wasn't to my liking - WAY too much marshmallow! The rest was fabulous; beautiful view, great food, and strong drinks :-) Hubby loved the shrimp tacos, and I loved the quinoa salad. Both very tasty! Watched the sunset and enjoyed the beautiful evening.

    We stood at the host podium for several minutes. No one that worked at the restaurant was in sight. No one ever came to greet or seat us, so we left. There also weren’t any other people eating in the restaurant, which was a telling sign.

    This was an awful experience. Menu on Open Table offered a buffet plus a full menu. When we got there it was just a buffet, a$16.95 buffet that was equal to a free breakfast buffet at your local Comfort Inn, with the exception of the omelet maker. Lukewarm hash browns, clumpy eggs. I could have cried. This was the ‘leaving my daughter at college going away breakfast’. We spent 15 minutes there, were charged $75 and I’m furious about it. The server was very kind, saw how upset I was about the menu and comped one of the 5 meals. It was not enough. I should have realized this would be a problem when this was the only location with open reservations in the city. Live and learn but I will NEVER return and be sure to tell everyone not to make the same mistake.

    We met another couple for an early dinner, and the although the food and service was good, the INCREDIBLY LOUD pool party had me worried we wouldn't be able to hold a conversation at the table. We sat as far away as possible, and it was tolerable. Great views of the water, the tacos we had were good, drinks were refreshing, and the service was what we'd expect. I will be back, and I'd recommend it to others.
